    Just wondering: Is that one of the Ironwood pieces I sent you?

    They were customer supplied scales from Arizonaironwood. The wood is spectacular and makes me crave to work on the blocks you sent which should be even nicer in some ways.

    Here is David's 270mm & 240mm Hiromoto AS gyutos (last 2 from the 4th group buy) in premium burl ironwood & black ash burl (both woods supplied by Stefan).

    The blades have been etched but unfortunately the 240mm showed the weld and didn't yield the impressive edge features that most of the 240mm's in this series do when etched. I'm bummed about this but you get whatever the knife gives up.

    Very interesting how the 240 came out. I wonder if they changes the process or if it is just the result of a different smith?
