    Nope but it's in the pile (I mean - line up).

    Oh wow. Beautiful handles and even more beautiful knives. This is the first time I have seen a polished kinaru ame with such engraving. Shinichi should have polished the choi a little bit more, but darn, that's beautiful work.

    As without saying, Stefan's work is awesome.

    Thanks Bao. I'm just wondering why the pics always show the little flaws that I didn't catch...

    Dave,
    I can tell you about the handle on my Suisin INOX Honyaki--its black horn ferrule, red coral spacer, and stabilized black ash burl. I was very happy with the handle as it came out. I really liked the original handle on the Suisin but as you saw it had a cracked ferrule. The handle Stefan made is almost the same exact size as the original sans the round bottom profile of course. How did it sharpen up?

    Thanks for the pics, Dave, I didn't even take any before I sent those out to you. Jeff described his already, but I have to admit that there is a question mark over the red material - I kept calling it red coral, but it might have been rhodonite. I think there was a mix-up in one of my orderes a while ago.

    The other one is thuya burl with a maple ferrule and black/honey horn spacers plus a damascus endcap that is secured with a hidden pin. It came out a little long, but it's a 360mm knife and I wanted to make it rather longer than shorter - I hope Tim will approve... The damascus is o.k., I had picked that up a while ago as bolster pieces, long before we had all the masters of damascus on this board - actually, the handle was as good as done long before this board was started. Dave was nice enough to etch it for me, I had been sitting here scratching my head about how to best do that...

    Hope that explains it all,

    Stefan
