    I've been waiting for you to show. I'm glad that you like it Justin, you should have it in hand in just a few days.

    Thanks for the work!

    Wow that cladding is crazy! It looks like a Tron derezzing.

    That's my favorite yet -- very nice work! Love the clean lines, and I much prefer that handle over the stock design. And nothing beats ironwood for simple elegance.

    These two belong to Samit, two very different knives from the same maker, performance package (thinned, etched, spine/choil rounding, sharpening) done.

    You can clearly see that you get what you get when you etch these knives. Oh and in case you're wondering the big boy is a 300mm wa-gyuto - what a beast!

    Two things about the gyuto....the kanji came off instantly (I could have probably removed it with Scothbrite - very lame etch job) and that was a bummer. The surface of the stainless cladding looks rough textured but is as smooth as silk. I learned a awhile ago that the pre and post treatment is what makes the job.

    I hope you like them Samit!

    Here is Mark's 240mm Hiromoto gytuo with it's new handle installed.

    The knife has been converted from full to hidden tang, the handle is made from premium koa (supplied by Burl Source), single mosaic pin, and copper spacer. The blade has been thinned, etched, spine/choil rounded, and sharpened up.

    If this doesn't fulfill your Hiromoto AS fantasies then nothing will.

    I guess it will do.

    Holy ****, Dave! It looks awesome!! Love the cladding, especially the left side. Thank you so much for all the work you put into this. I know my knives were a pain for some reason, and I'm happy they're finally done! I'm sure you are, too.

    Yeah your knives are always a pain in the ass...what's up with that?

    That's OK though Mark, in the end what's done is done and what results is what matters. You've been real patient and helpful with me along the way and I truly appreciate that. Thank you!

    That said.....I hope to never see this knife or the cleaver again.

    Funny thing again with these knives, one side is different than the other. I work each side the exact same way yet we see a difference....go figure!?!
