    Beautiful Marko!
    For the handle, my vote is for an octagonal because yours are just so damned nice!

    OK, it seems to be more interest (for the knife I might pass around) in octagonal handle than D, so I will make D for the knife I am keeping. Out to work now. I have two days to finish this knife, including making handles and a saya. With me working very slowly (grinding the blade is the slowest), this is not much time, but I will do my best.

    I know this is premature, but I'm in on the pass around, if you need a left-handed Canadian's opinion

    Any chance you will be moving across the boarder?

    Haha. Unfortunately, no...
    Maybe I'll just visit the shop if and when I hit NYC!

    That looks awesome. Also being that my interest in Masamoto's gyuto has peaked over the past few months this look great!
    If a passaround happens, I would be honored to test her out at the sushi bar.

    Congrats Marko!

    I don't see the signup sheet anywhere for the passaround (!!!), but I'd be most definitely interested in comparing the Marko-amoto to a Masamoto in person, once business drops off a wee bit in the kitchen.
