The pink liners is a nice touch. gorgeous knife by the way!
Here's an older Tojiro sujihiki with new dyed maple (I think?) scales. It also has nickel silver pins & G10 liners. This job was a bear - one of the trickiest fit ups that I've been faced with and that's all because of weld blobs behind the bolster which the factory ground all wonky making nothing square. I did my best but there's little issues that can be seen in hand up close, and nah I'm not going to point them out.
BTW - this knife has been in the shop (in the que) waiting to be worked on since May 2012!! This might help explain where your knife is if it's here waiting. I'm getting to it - I promise.
Thanks Dave it looks awesome can't wait to use it again.
Good to see some pics getting back up. Looks great!
