    I like the profile Dave and with my request think it is going to be perfect for me when I get mine. I am really thinking about a Red/black combo for the handle as we discussed ... that red maple looks money. Either that as the handle and black ferrule or that as a ferrule with a black toned handle ... just really nice work. Your handles look cleaner and cleaner. Keep it up.

    Regards

    WOW!!!!!
    Beautiful knife!
    You are doing some awesome handles.

    I agree with you about the video the show off the flash in the wood.
    I have a hard time getting the photos to show what the koa is really like.
    The new owner is in for a pleasant surprise.

    Wow. Yeah I love both of the last two. Wooden bolster is definitely the way to go!

    That seems fairly tall for suji. I bet it's a great all rounder.

    Jesus Dave ... you can tell you are progressing. Your makers Mark even looks stellar! I have been keeping the excitement low as not to get anxious to get mine ... you are making it hard now. I know it will be my new favorite. That thing is going to see more action than a hot woman on Nebraska street here in Tampa!

    Regards

    Bryan

    PS .... will someone review their suji??? ***! Where is the brotherly love around here!

    Just got finished with this one. It's a 240mm gyuto with ancient New Zealand Kauri wood (30k + yr old!) handle and fiddleback maple bolsters, tapered tang, & stainless pins.

    Sorry for the rain drops shown and bad framing, the stupid rain and wind was messing with me bad.

    Very clean looking work Dave.

    I like the composition of materials on this one and the aesthetic balance of handle to blade.

    Is your MM stamped or an etched?
    Reminds of graphics often seen on custom classic cars... cool stuff.
