    Thumbs up

    I bought one, it came in today. I like it!!

    42mm Blade height
    Spine 2.8mm at the heel, .88 at the tip
    216mm long

    It has the worst handle I have ever seen from Takeda it is not even centerd on the tang. I got a new one glued-up and roughed out

    Great looking wood on the new handle, Mike. Can't wait to see it on the Takeda.

    Jon Broida had some nice heavy slicers when I went up to see him. It would be worth your/your co-workers while to call him.

    That is going to look amazing! Beautiful wood. I'm not sure who I first saw using those fiber spacers, but they are really quite tasteful and make for a nice transition. Can't wait to see the finished handle!

    Got it done. I decided against the spalted maple for the sasanoha because it was way too light, for that heavier knife. I put on my other Takeda

    Really nice work, Mike. I can't decide which one I like better.
