    20 inches of pure unadulterated bakelite. Red and cream. I am super excited to start working with this.

    Konosuke Ginsan 240 rehandle and saya

    I rehandled my konosuke 240mm ginsan with that redwood, micarta, and nickle-silver handle I ask yall about a while ago. I also made a rosewood saya for it. Let me know what you think.

    The handle work and saya are gorgeous. I can do about anything with metal but wood is still a mystery to me.
    Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it...

    That's some nice polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride you got there!!

    Thanks everyone.

    I am not sure if the konosuke ginsan line is hand made.
