    Don, what steels are you working with? Do you do the heat treatment yourself or send them out?

    I must say Don that when I first saw your angular handle design it seemed a bit weird to me. Guess I was just too used to the typical wa handles, whether they were oval, D or hexagonal. Now that I've seen a number of your designs they have really grown on me. You have certainly created a unique approach. Well done.

    Right now I'm working exclusively with 1084 (and probably soon 1095). I'm looking into other steels right now to add but that might be quite a while from now. Some of them I do myself and some get sent out.

    Thanks Myron!

    Newest one. 250mm Gyuto, profile inspired by Masamoto. Insane material from Craig Stevens, and some ivory paper micarta. The micarta was the worst material I have worked with to date; I've used other paper micartas, but this one has taken the cake. Gummy, burns, stains, peels, everything. A lot of swearing took place when finishing the piece...

    3.5mm spine thickness at the choil, 1mm towards the tip.

    Very nice, Don. That ivory Micarta looks good, even if it was a PITA to work.
