    Did he say what woods he was planning to use for the handle?

    Hey Hoss, are you doing a ivory micarta bolster with the wire brushed wenge on these? I'd like that.

    Hey all, talked to Devin today and pettys are on track. He's rolling out metal this week then cutting to follow.

    Did Devin have anything to say about the ferrule to be used with the brushed wenge handle?

    Pesky showed up today. We made the blade for his suji. 52100, 285mm, 43mm tall, 62 hrc, convex grind.

    We had a great time. We did some cutting with some of my experimental knives/steels. Talked knives, food, cooking, family etc. along with San Diego state basketball, whoot!!

    Maybe when he gets home he'll have a chance to report on his trip. I think he's trying to get tk59 to come with him on the next visit.

    Said that he likes the profile on the petty's.

    More on the trip later but the profile is more Mario's damascus petty. As to the ferrules, we talked about it briefly, and its still up in the air. He had a test gyuto that had a brushed wenge handle with black ferrule and it was nice. If you were on the fence about the brushed wenge I'd push you to get it. The handle's texture aids in grippiness.
