    Beautiful work as usual on those Hiromotos Dave. I had to sell my gyuto and suji because I've been out of work for quite a while and needed the money. However, when I'm flush again, replacing them is a priority.

    I'd love to see one of these guys after they've some major use. Curious as to how it would look, and if a patina will make it that much more sexy...

    This is a Hiromoto AS 240mm gyuto with new handle freshly installed & performance packaged applied. The kanji stamping was very light to begin with so I lost some in the thinning of the blade, it was simply unavoidable. The left side shows a unique banding of some sort within the steel. I have no idea what this is but it appeared almost instantly when I starting grinding and became more apparent as I went along. This is another case of not having any idea of what the finished result will be on these knives. I do hope that the owner likes it even with it's unique attributes.

    The scales are dyed Oregon maple (wood from Burl Source).

    Joe is a musician and asked that I include some brass so we went with brass liners, brass pins, with the middle pin showing a lucky 4 leaf clover.

    Dave, I love it, looks great! The light kanji and banding just make it look a little older is all. I think the brass pins and spacers will look even better as they patina. Very nice work.

    Joe, maybe you can shoot some pics for me after the brass starts to turn, I'd love to see this.

    Thanks for your business and enjoy your refurbed knife.

    Incredible! This is truly a piece of art Dave, unreal. Love the Ironwood, works great with the overall concept. It's great to come home from a long day in the kitchen and see this, thank you.
