    few coffee bins shots (photos heavy)

    Few things happened lately: I've been given a big bag of coffee bins that taste like a complete disaster. Worst coffee ever. And the good thing is I finally received a renaissance wax that I've been waiting for several weeks.
    Quickly applied wax on the few handles that I completed recently and made a coffee photo session

    Cocobolo and grenadil ferrule





    Same knife with palisander handle.





    As you may have guessed, I haven't epoxied handle yet. Still deciding which one to leave.



    Next is my belowed Shigefusa with burl source Amboyna handle.





    I'm pretty happy with how this one comes out. Still hasn't epoxied this handle but planning to do it today.



    Same Shig with cocobolo handle.





    This one is ok, but I'm gonna stick with above amboyna handle.


    The last one is Tanaka petty.




    Amboyna block was big enough for 2 handles, so this is the second one. Also this is my first try with corian.



    So far I'm simply blown away by Renaissance wax. It so much easier to work with compared to carnauba wax. And the results feels and looks better.

    At least it makes a very nice background, that deep red cocobolo handle is amazing.

    You are a very talented guy. I love the second one, and the second last one. They are all beautiful, though. You've found that balance between eye catching, and classic. I really like your style.

    Yep, that coffee is good for a background and I would keep it solely for this reason.

    You're really turning up the heat on your handle production. All of it looks great!

    Dude, those look great! But you need to buy more knives so you have something to put them all on

    Be well,
