    Yeah, they look pretty cool, but a bit of a pita. That's where I maybe rushed it a bit. Supposed to wait like 6 hours between glue ups before moving on to the next one but I may have been a bit impatient on one of those steps and you can see where the red bolster spaced slipped a little bit. Also, I didn't do such a clean job on the tang under the handle. It's a trouble spot for me with my limited tools so I just asked Dave to clean her up a little and wow. Awesome! Can't wait to get her back!!

    I'm glad that you like the looks of it Rick. She's a high speed operator for sure now.

    I have another Hiromoto Performance Package done, this one belongs to James. I thought for sure that this one was going to turn out plain and clearly that's not the case.

    Gorgeous! It always amazes me how different each knife turns out.

    I was wondering if you have any tips and suggestions for a hidden tang conversion. How much of the tang do you leave for good balance with a stabilized wood?

    I usually leave about 1/2" past the middle rivet hole.

    Here's another 240mm Hiromoto AS that's had the "Performance Package" (blade thinned, spine/choil rounded, etched, & sharpened) done to it.

    Dear Dave,

    If you have a moment, would you mind sharing tips on thinning secondary bevels? Your thinning jobs like great...

    I have watched Jon Broida's youtube videos on thinning and feel like I would benefit from more content (videos, forum posts, etc.). Any information/referrals are appreciated.

    The Hiros look beautiful!

    Thank you ahead of time!
