    Here we have Lucretia's Tanaka(?) 160mm petty that's been converted from wa to western.

    The wood used is all from Burl Source, dyed blue Oregon Maple Burl with African Blackwood and a copper spacer added for some extra pizzazz.

    Dave, Did you give it the Performance package? The Etching is just popping

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    It was a girl's knife before. But it was wearing Birkenstocks, and now it has on dancing shoes.


    Looks great, Dave!

    Oh, and it's a Yoshikane SLD.

    Here is Emanuel's honesuki dressed up in it's new buckeye burl (wood from BurlSource) handle with G10 liners and a single nickle silver pin.

    Hey E, do you remember this knife?
