next one up is an old favorite from a great maker. SpikeC's original pettysuki.
The ferrule is ebony, the rest is stabilized redwood from the Burl Source.It is filled with Chatoyance. there is a split in the ferrule but, it has been filled with ca glue and is very stable.
The blade is 162mm long and 38mm tall at the heel.
The blade is O1 steel heat treated as per Devin Thomas' instructions, heated to 1475, quenched in fast quench oil, then soaked fro 30 minutes at minus 100º f., followed by double tempering at 345º f. The hardness should be between 61 and 63 hrc. The blade was coated with anti-scale compound prior to HT to minimize decarb. I'm going to miss this one when it's gone! $150 conus shipping
