    WIP HHH San O'Mai

    Randy was kind enough to let me get my paws on the first SS clad blue 2 blade he made. Like the Cris Anderson suji, I have great plans for this blade. In fact, I've already ordered a matching bunka and parring blade so I can put them together as a set. I thought I'd let all y'all follow along

    First, the raw materials. Fully aware that I'm never going to beat Randy at his own game, I said screw it, I'm going to try any way. The body will be made from Honduran rosewood (a hunk of wood that cost way more than I ever thought I'd be willing to pay for one). For the ferrule and endcap, fossilized walrus ivory. Spacers are argentium 935 silver (like sterling, but better) and bog oak.

    Gotta agree with 100% badass. Nice job, Mikey & Randy!

    Mikey. I changed my mind about this. Please send the blade back and just add that old handle to the package.

    On a more serious note. Fantastic looking. Great choices for the materials as well as I LOVE the layout. Thats going to be one Bad A$$ knife!!!
