    This is Samit's Hiromoto "White Steel" gyuto (limited time produced knife from years ago) with it's new handle. The factory handle and bolster on these knives is pitiful in stock form. I began by tearing off the scales and giant ass bird's eye pins, cleaned up the tang (removed rust and pitting), installed new spalted two-toned maple (from Burl Source) along with black G10 liners & nickel silver pins, then shaped and rounded the sharp edges off of the bolster to make for a better feel in the hand, then it was spine & choil rounding, and finally sharpening. Aside from the patina the owner may not recognize this one.

    i got lucky, I did not bite on the first 20 or so. Koki then got some returns because people were not happy with the handles. He discounted them again, with a zero return policy. That is when I made my move. Its been sitting for 3 years (with me). Bought it march of 2010, he sold the return 240mm for 90 + 7 shipping, the 300mm were 130 + 7. I was late and he did not have any more of the 300mm.
