    The sheer volume and staggerng attention to detail time and time again is beyond compare. Truly awesome! if this is what goes into your handles, I can't wait to see how your knives turn out.

    I always think of this as the fun part - seeing how a nondescript and and ugly piece of wood turns into this nice piece with great patterns and colors once you work on it a little bit. I look forward to seeing how these will turn out.

    Here's what became of the 3 ugly ducklings.... :smile1:

    The suji is done is blue dyed peacock. This came out real dark and the pictures didn't capture what it looks like in person, it's much nicer than what's shown here.

    The 240mm gyuto is purple dyed buckeye burl. This one kicked my ass, just didn't want to give up the look and feel but I believe I won in the end.

    The customer supplied both of those woods.

    The last is the 210mm gyuto in birdseye maple from Stefan's stash.

    All three blades have been etched but not shown sharpened (I haven't done that yet).

    I hope you like them Sean.
