    Yes and I've come up short on answers.

    I was lucky enough to try this knife a couple of weeks ago and it is a great knife. It's more heavy duty than many of the sujis I've messed around with lately. This is the first big suji I see as being truly an all-arounder. Great work Dave! If I was still working in a pro environment I would seriously consider using a Martel Suji.

    Dave your work just keeps getting better!
    Looks like you have the etching problems worked out.
    Dont know if your familiar with Ernie or not, but he has been a huge help to me in the past with my etching issues.
    Also he does custom stenciles at VERY reasonable prices!

    Here is a link.

    God Bless

    Ok I officially am sold on no bolster. That is one of the cleanest knife I have ever seen. That's incredible. How could you not like that???

    Martell 300mm western sujihiki with O1 steel, koa scales (wood supplied by Stefan), fiddleback maple bolsters, G10 liners, & nickel silver pins.

    This one came out nice, I'm pleased for once. The only bummer in the whole process has been that the pictures just don;t capture how nice the koa is. It's got a great mix of dark and honey colors as well as metallic type flash and movement.

    Hope you enjoy it Lyle!
