    I would have a hard time choosing between these knives, they all look great IMHO. I can't believe I still haven't finished a kauri wa handle, but I am working on it.

    Thanks guys.


    Hey does anyone think that my mark is getting any better, clearer, crisper, deeper, darker, whatever? This is such a nerve racking part to have to do at the next to last step.

    While scrolling through the photos I noticed that the makers mark was getting better with every knife.
    I personally like the Hawaiian Signature Wood the best. I would like to see you use ebony bolsters, I feel they might blend better with the black micarta pin.
