    Cheers Randy, yeah I've been lucky with getting bits and pieces over the years at a good price. Most of it is a luxury for knife making.....but essential for my architectural work.

    That looks like a hell of a time.

    You know the earmuffs work better on your ears, right?

    Cool, thanks so much for doing that Tom. Can't wait to see the Gyuto all finished.

    Handle is being shaped, but the stabilised wood is much tougher to work, my block plane seems to be in constant need of sharpening
    Is a really good fit though, going to leave it friction fit so that it can be removed if needs be
    Once it's shaped i'll play with the balance point and will probably put a Mokume endcap on to give it some bling.

    Sharpened it up and it passes HHT and every other sharpness test i tried, it just needs it's handle on...

    How's the Suji coming along?

    Got some brass and Ally round to play with in place of a dowel, but I got 12mm, its a bit slack, was it a 1/2" drill?

    Yeah just checked was 1/2", can you flare the rod out once the slot is cut?

    Ah i'll get some more, it was cheap enough and I can use the 12mm for something else.
