    Nice 1 Rick. I really appreciate you doing this. I hope you keep it up in all your future rehandles. It's very cool and generous of you. This is another form of spreading the knowledge.
    Keep it going brother!

    I don't have many western handled knives that need a rehandle left... just the yo-deba. Maybe it's time to buy a Hiromoto gyuto?

    Yes, please do!
    It's time for you to pop your "wa-cherry" too!
    You're hooked man, you're screwed just like me!!!
    Check out woodcraft for some new equipment too, I've gotten some killer deals from them on some decent stuff. Really good sales sometimes.

    Yeah, I need a 4" belt and at least a 9" disk before I can attempt a wa. Plus I can use the 4" belt for menial sharpening and stock removal. Anyway, mission accomplished for the most part I'm happy with the results but there's always room for improvement.

    Thanks Rick that's awesome! As to the spacer, is that for looks or is it there to serve another purpose?

    Cheers!

    Looks good. Though, I really like the stock handle on mine.

    Very nice! And a whole handle in 12:40, that's impressive For some reason I still haven't gotten around to making a Western handle after a few hundred wa handles, but it's on my list and I held back one knife for it. And that's pretty much what I pictured it to work like, so thanks for the confirmation. I just may be more messy than you, so I usually wear thin latex gloves whenever I use epoxy or I end up gluing myself to something... What was the finish you applied at the end?
