    Thanks guys - you're too kind.

    I'll have to ask the customer about the maker on that, I'm getting curious myself.

    I thought it was kind of weird.
    But I like weird so that was meant as a compliment.
    I like the way the black liner ties in with the blackline in the spalted piece.

    It wouldn't be my choice of materials, but the craftsmanship looks top notch and it is certainly unique looking.

    A little late to the show, but...Hubba-hubba! Great work, Dave!

    Here is Dan's 240mm Hiromoto AS gyuto that has had it's blade thinned & etched with a new buckeye burl handle installed.

    The etching came out very light on this one. I even etched it twice and got the same results. Once again I'm left saying that you never know what you'll get when you etch a Hiro.

    The thinning and handle came out nicely though and I think Dan should be happy with those aspects.

    The etching doesn't look too light to me. Nice looking knife.
