    Looks like a different profile on the sujis too!

    Yep, suji's have a different profile as well.
    Here is some final sanding on the choil and spine of one of the 240's. In the last photo the bolster is being held in place by a jig that I made.
    The bolster is stainless and will be getting red jasper recon stock spacer along with a black silky oak handle.
    It's also getting a stained poplar saya with falling maple leaf engraving and a red anodized titanium saya pin.

    The handle is shaped and hand sanded. I put 3-4 coats of gun stock finish and sand between each coat. This helps fill in pits and also seals everything for extra protection.

    Fresh out of an acid bath. Heavy 240 in 1095, 3mm spine above the heel. A. blackwood dovetailed to nicely figured cocobolo.

    Final hand sanding on a 240.



    I probably do my maker's mark a little differently than most, but the concept is the same. I put down some blue masking tape and then use a laser to engrave the mark. This allows me to quickly adjust the size of the mark. Once that is complete I use a power source and electrolyte solution to get a deep etch into the blade.

    Milling out a slot in the spacer for a precise fit.

    Assembled and shaped. Next move up to finer grits.



    All hand sanded and the finish just needs to dry. Really nice figure in Burl Source's silky oak!
