    Dave:

    Spectacular job. I love the ironwood, and bet it looks even better in person than the photos. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Thank you.

    This is Josh's Martell 240mm O-1 gyuto with Australian Red Morrell burl scales with an Ash Burl spacer, G10 liners, & copper pins. Wood came from Burl Source

    The story behind this one is that Josh wanted something different but not crazy and asked for a spacer configuration like I had done on a Hiro rehandle not too long ago. I tried my best to pull this off, I sure hope he likes it because I don't want to do it again. LOL

    Looks good to me, nice contrast. Just wondering, could you say what exactly made this so much more challenging? Making the scales? Putting it all together? Shaping it?

    Thanks Stefan

    For me it was putting it together cleanly because clamping was a bear. Laying it out spaced correctly wasn't easy either. Also drilling new holes in a hardened tang wasn't the most fun thing I've ever done. I suppose that my level of skill is really the biggest issue though.

    Yeah...clamping that doesn't look fun!

    Great look, though. Very eye-catching.

    Holy crap Dave. I love it. Even better then I thought I would.
    The angled spacer is really cool! Contrast is great! It's awesome!!

    Not sure if it's for everyone but definitely for me. Feels like a piece of art.

    For your sake I hope no one else asks for something like this sounds like a pain!

    Very nice execution and a good addition to your skill set! The next one will be a lot easier!
