    After starting to develop rashes to one or more of my woods and struggling with a bronchitis for almost 12 weeks, I decided some better protection might be in order. Still have mixed feelings about the thing. Feels safe and seems to keep dust out, although I still do smell some woods, i.e. some particles still must come in. Supposedly it filters out 98%, down to 0.5micron which is much smaller than the average saw dust particle. Of course, wearing the thing in a 90F shop in Hawaii means it does get a bit hot but because of the active ventilation only toward the back of the head. Finally, 2 annoying things: 1) I keep bumping into beams and low hanging lamps that I just clear without the thing on my head 2) because the battery and filters are inside the helmet top, it is a bit top heavy. This means, when you bend down it shifts or you have to screw the head band so tight that it becomes a torture instrument. Will have to figure something out about that. Overall, for half the price a no-brainer, for the actual price ($370) it could be a bit more comfortable.

    Oh, and I am not keeping bees, but Mr. Reginald Prawnbaum is.

    How do I get in touch with you, I can't seem to PM, I would like to handle my 240 Gyuto with one of your handles. Really beautiful work you do.

    1. Hawaiian signature wood with a whitebait kauri handle, made with a longer suji in mind, should also work on a 270 gyuto, $110, 152 x 22/24 x 25/27
    4. Another very long and slim one, Belize rosewood, kukui nut ferrule, copper spacer, perfect for a 330 yanagi, $135, 157 x 20/22 x 22/25
    5. Hawaiian milo, spalted signature ferrule, fiber spacers, I see this on a 270 gyuto, $79, 153 x 23/25 x 25/27
