    Love the result! These knives really benefit from your work. Hiromoto should hire you for this!

    Here is Erica's 240mm Hiromoto. It's been thinned & etched and everything rounded smooth. The handle configuration has been converted from full to hidden tang, AZ Ironwood installed, along with copper-black G10-copper spacers, and a copper mosaic pin.

    The handle was shaped differently than I usually do because someone (ahem - Jim) has been after me to do a rounded rear end and once tested I really liked it and wanted to do it to this knife since I could tell the look would work. Beyond looks, this rounded rear feels very good in the hand (did you catch what I did here?LOL) and unless people have an objection to it I'm going to continue doing this moving forward from here. Please let me know what you think - be honest!

    The ironwood that Erica sourced is superb! I really love the look it gives off. The wood is finished to a satin luster, it's hand finished and simply oiled. IMO ironwood doesn't want to be shiny like a mirror so I don't force the issue.

    Erica, I hope you get lots of joy and years of use from this one.

    OMG! The pictures don't even capture how beautiful the knife and handle is. It's just stunning and the handle is so comfortable. My husband said I might have to get another one for ME lol. Dave, you are a master. Thank you <3
