You folks are too kind.
Cool one, Dave -- I really like the wood bolster.

Is it crazy I have no Ironwood or Koa in my life?
I need to remedy that Ironwood situation asap...koa...still on the fence.

I have but one Koa handle, an early Stefan piece, and think it's gorgeous. I'd get another if the opportunity came up.
Though I could not caution all I still might warn a few: Don't raise your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools. - Robert Hunter
Here is Keith's 240mm O-1 Martell gyuto in premium AZ ironwood scales (supplied by Stefan Keller), African blackwood bolsters (supplied by Burl Source), and nickel silver pins.
I hope it suits you Keith!
How about koa on one side and ironwood on the other?
"The Buddha resides as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of a mountain."
I can't believe how gorgeous that Az ironwood is. Great work.
Now can someone please tell those heat treat guys to hurry up!
