    Wow! Though I'm sure the pictures just can't do that handle justice. It had a lot of 3d holographic stuff going on in that redwood burl, really gorgeous piece. Great job Dave and thanks.

    I know I'll be happy with the Tanaka as well. The choil on that bad boy was always sharp as a mother effer so it will be nice to have a comfy grip on it.


    I'm sure my saute cook will be pleased as punch with the Hiromoto as well. Looks great and I'll bet it's nice and thin now.


    Care to comment on the Tanaka's R2 core steel and Damascus cladding? There isn't a lot of info out there on either.

    I was rather surprised by the sharp edges on the choil of my Tanaka petty, given the level of finish on the rest of the knife. The spine is nicely polished, but that heel area was horrible!

    Those Tanaka spines and choils are super sharp - they need to be de-burred before use.

    The Hiro is WAY thinner - you're saute cook should see a decent improvement.

    And the wood on the Hattori handle is great - the pictures really look like dog poop compared to real life.

    Nice work, as usual. That honesuki really looks great. Is that one of my maple pieces? I still haven't finished a blue one, yet, gotta get my act together...

    It's redwood burl that I got from Arizona Ironwood. They have a nice collection.

    And yes, I do believe there was a blue handle for a certain person on the horizon somewhere...

    Cool. You can call me anytime you are free. I'll be at work, but will take a time out to chat for a bit.

    And I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of these knives Dave. Hurry up stupid Post Office!@!
