    Here is Mel's 240mm Hiromoto AS gyuto that just went through a full refurb. Somehow he scored himself a real thick version (even thicker than normal I think) of this knife and this obviously bothered him enough to try to thin it himself with stones. He sure did a lot of work on both sides to make it better but in the end he sent it over to me to get trimmed down. So I thinned the blade and then etched it for effect.

    Also, Mel had a rehandle coupon that he needed to use so he cashed it in on this knife. I installed some dyed maple (scored from Burl Source) with G10 liners and nickel silver pins.

    I think this came out pretty nice and hope that Mel feels the same.

    Thanks for your incredible patience Mel.

    Maybe because I've had it here for so long?

    I'm glad that you like it Melvin, hopefully it impresses even more with use.

    Thanks again,
    Dave

    If I had to guess I would have guessed that those scales were koa.
    I love how the rippled pattern in the wood works so well with the clad line on the blade.
    Great work as always Dave.
