    Thanks guys I do have a performance question. This handle is pretty heavy with everything in/on it. The balance point is right where the blade comes out of the handle. Aside from a bit of reshaping the handle, is it super important for a suji to be blade heavy/ weight forward for it to perform properly? I still want to thin the blade just a touch, cutting performance is first and foremost. What do you guys think?

    A little voice inside of me told me that I shouldn't open this thread. It was right.

    That horn handle is AMAZING. The i-beam on top doesn't exactly do it for me, but the colors, spacers, and horn are just beautiful together. And I haven't even mentioned the blade...

    Great work.

    Thanks guys. I am sending this one out to Coop for some pics next week. I really need to jam on a saya for it...I have some cool plans for that I will get some pictures up when i start on it tomorrow. I have some awesome Walnut the Mark sent me, i think i might use that, to keep the theme of the dark....And maybe a small inlay One question for you guys...Witha saya, i also thought about doing a leather sheath to boot...Whatcha think?

    leather is always cool, sometimes you just want to grab and go.and not worry about messing up a really nice saya.
