    Here's what it looked like the first time around with Adam:

    Scales moved around a bit, so I had Dave smooth it out.

    Once it got here, within a month the wood was so warped it broke the epoxy bond.

    Moral...Don't let anybody tell you that ebony doesn't need to or can't be stabilized!

    Should be damn near bulletproof now! Thanks Dave.

    Just to be clear, I wasn't implying that Adam misguided me about the stabilization. That info came from the guy I got the wood from.

    Here's the first knife from the Hiromoto Group Buy #5

    It's a 240mm gyuto with amobyna burl scales, black G10 liners, and stainless pins. The blade was etched but not thinned.

    Here's another group buy Hiromoto AS 240mm gyuto. This one was thinned & etched and has ancient kauri scales with copper/nickel silver mosaic pins.

    The knife is shown here unsharpened because it was starting to rain so I snapped some pictures while I could, I'll sharpen it up before shipping.

    wait until you see the 210mm I'm working on. It came with a crazy pattern and then after thinning.....well.....it's even crazier.
