    We have a WINNER folks!

    The wa version will have the same exact blade shape/profile - just with a smaller tang.

    The blanks (all gyutos and sujis pre-ordered) will be ordered to be cut by tomorrow. I can't wait to get rolling.

    For you guys who have pre-ordered I have some Stefan supplied wood on hand that you may be interested in selecting from, a few pieces of stabilized koa and some premium ironwood burl blocks. If you're interested please let me know and I'll put it aside for you.

    Dave:

    I'm definitely interested. Do you have pictures of these blocks?

    Dave, if the ironwood burl is as nice as the recent Hiro-rehandle, i would like to call dibs.
    "Experience" is what you get when you don't get what you want.

    I just found out my friend is giving me a referral fee for generating him some business. It's more than enough to cover the deposit on a suji and now I'm seriously considering it. Gotta love it when "free" money falls in your lap! Now I just don't know if I want to go with a wa or western handle.

    I'd love to see pics of those blocks as well.

    OOO,
    I am definitely interested, I've never gotten to pick my own wood before!

    I'll take some pictures and get back to you guys.

    PS @ so_sleepy - it's way better ironwood burl than you may have ever seen. Yeah - that good + expensive too!

    Here's what I've got, all from Stefan.




    *Note - The speckles on the whitebait piece don't run all the way through the block.




    I don't know what the wood on the large (unlabeled) top block is (help Stefan) but it's got some serious 3D effect with depth like I've never seen.
