    After spending the day with theTanaka, I think I may nock the front of the handle and spacers off and replace that with some simple black micarta, keeping the back handle intact.

    I did it!

    Yep. That 5 piece spacer had to go...was just too busy. I think this is more subdued and as elegant as a bright red and blue handle could be? Maybe.

    Amazing stuff, Chris.
    Good food is essential, where knives are an integral part of the process.

    Wow did you do all this on your own knives? Must be quite a unique looking collection by now. Family photo?

    I'll work on it. I usually do a year end photo.

    I do keep most of the knives for myself. I sell off many to friends and coworkers after a while of playing. Funny how a kitchen can be full of Shun and Wustof, and within a year of me being their, everyone has baller jknives.
