    Thanks David! I'm starting to figure this game out. If things stay on track your knife should only be few weeks (maybe a month?) away.

    That buckeye handle looks awesome--and the knives aren't too shabby either.

    Congrats Don!

    There are many people who claim to be good cooks; just as there are many people who, after having repainted the garden gate take themselves to be painters.

    So I was asked to make a 180mm santoku and I accepted. Then came the time to actually make the knife and I struggled with the design. The thing is that while I've handled and worked on thousands of santokus I have little experience with using them so I've never thought a lot about what a santoku really is or what it should/could be. I spent a lot of time researching and toying about until I finally went with what I'd like to have if I was going to use one of these knives. Did I come up with something useful or did I fail?

    Steel used is O-1, handle is redwood burl with a dyed Oregon maple burl ferrule

    So anyway, here it is for your review and comments....
