    That's the difference between you and the rest of us. We usually fail the first 10-100 times.

    I like how you tapered the ferrule on some of those D shaped handles. Makes for a comfortable feel. Nice Job!

    Thanks guys.

    That feature I credit to Fish and Bob Kramer. Fish did it on octagonal handles (remember Lee's Carter? Fish did the tapers on both sides) and Bob has been doing it on his Meiji (D) handle.

    Second D Handle

    I improved a couple of things over the first, but identified two more areas that need improvement, so hopefully, one more before I will officially offer it as a choice with my knives. A handle can be mounted for a right-hand or a left-hand use.

    Mortise and tenon construction. You can actually see the tenon through the horn.

    Gidgee wood, light/marble horn, nickel silver spacer. Handle weighs 80g.

    Knife in the picture - 240mm gyuto in 52100. 3mm over the heel, 2.1mm half way, 1.65mm 2" from the tip. Height at the heel is about 50mm. Weighs 140g without a handle, 220g with.

    I incorporated a suggestion from one of the pro guys who tested two of my knives (for a private feedback) and added a little more weight to the knife. It's a little more robust knife now (it weighs 25g more than a thinner version, weight came from a little less distal taper toward the tip), yet still very thin above the edge (~.005").

    Light horn is a little more delicate than a black horn (it discolors from the heat from grinding), so this is something I have to keep in mind going forward - slower grinding speed and fresher belts.

    PS: The patina on the knife comes from testing it at home for cutting performance.

    Very nice Marko. Getting it really dialed in now! Gidgee looks really nice, as does the horn.

    Wow, that's a nice, clean looking combination. The light horn brightens up the look of the whole knife.
