Recently got my first nakiri. It's a Masakage Yuki, white #2, clad. Since the stock handle wasn't the best and i hadn't run my power tools in a few months, i decided to finally scratch an itch i had . My first re-handle was a Wa (almost a year ago!) and since then i had only done westerns. i was also eager to try an etch for the first time. I found a detailed "how-to" from Dave that was, of course, quite useful...ferric chloride and vinegar.
The handle is african blackwood with maple ferrule. Copper spacer.
i tried a mortised handle this time which was a bit trickier than the doweled technique on the first. i didn't get the tenon perfectly shaped for the mortise as you may be able to see below.
In any event...always fun!
all criticism is welcome!
