    I hope the sizes will work out, some of these knives seem to have huge tangs... I would love to see the whole set when they are done, and I am sure that will be possible.

    The two Shige tangs here were a bit longer than I would have liked, especially the gyuto but it all worked out.

    Here's two of Noah's knives all ready to go from a day at the spa.

    The top one is a Yamawaku gyuto handled in an OTSH (Off the Shelf Handle) - maple body with zirocote ferrule.

    The bottom ones is a Takeda funayaki handled in blue mahoe body with rosewood ferrule & endcap.

    These two are different than usual handles. Stefan made them to customer specs, they're asymmetric with wider top sides. You can see the shape from the bottom of the handle shot.

    The knives are Yoshikane but the wood is a mystery to me....Stefan help?

    The wood used for the above handle set is amboyna and ironwood.

    Those are some mighty peculiar handles, but that is some GORGEOUS wood. Bravo.

    I did scratch my head a bit over these and the unusual shape, but the customer gave me the sizes down to 1/16", so I just sanded away anything thatnwas not a handle... And the amboyna really is from a nice piece. But I have another one coming, best amboyna piece I have ever used
