Thread: A start to finish WIP

    Hey guys, thanks for the kind words, I'm glad you enjoyed the process. It was a chalange, but a lot of fun as well.
    That billet was actually the second attempt, the first wasn't up to snuff.

    Oh, I forgot to add at the begining, the core is O1, and the bright ribbon you see seperating the core from the san mai cladding is pure nickel.

    That's as good an example of a suji that i've ever seen, quite simply stunning.

    Very cool project, Pierre. You are just ahead of me there: I recently had a gentleman ask me about a handle that uses abalone in a similar way (maybe even the same person?) and a few weeks ago I ordered a box of ammonites for inlays. Looks like we are on similar paths

    That's pretty amazing work, Pierre! It's nice to see it all put together like that. You have a lucky customer waiting for this one!
    I think it's safe to say, nobody is touching your sujis, at the moment. You're kind of changing the game, my friend!

    That is perty. Btw, is the profile a bit flatter than you normally do on your sujis? Sometimes photos can be deceiving.

    I hate you Pierre, I thought one knife from you was enough. It isn't new now and posts like this make me want more! Sigh. Which way to the bank?

    It is finally finished! I promised Harald a while ago something special, something he had no clue about, and tormented him incessently about it. As you know H called the suji the "Black Pearl" from the black lip mother of pearl spacer. I added an amonite to the butt, essentially a fossilized shell, and keeping with the ocean theme, I selected materials to protect the knife. A saya was necessary, I didn't think I could match Haralds woodworking skills, so this is what I came up with. Thanks for looking!
