    Could you please switch mine from the 150 to the 135 as I would prefer a multitasker. Thank you, and I will be in touch with a couple of questions about Saya making.
    Done!

    I have a quick request, Marko. Could you make the handle on mine (135 mm) cocobolo, as I already have some that I can use to make a matching saya.

    Starting to work on these. First one is Rick's. Picks as soon as the knife is completed.

    Yours is the hardest, so it got to be PenTig.

    This one just to test run the process, after that, things should run smoothly.

    Rick's honesuki is in DT mystery carbon. I find it very difficult to bring this steel to same finish as my 52100. Hand-polising this steel with automotive sandpaper is pretty futile.
