    lovely.. The red amboyna makes the knife shall I say more lovely and striking visually.

    excellent choice

    Thanks Guys. The customer chose the two tone Amboyna for that one from Burlsource, I was glad he did because I had my eye on it. Seems rare to get such an even color balance.
    The two wild card - extra Suji's I'm planning on doing my diamond shaped handles like for the carving set. I'll leave off gluing them on straight away incase anyone falls in love but not with the handle.

    Thanks Marko, I owe much of that method to T.B.London who introduced me to the dowel system. I kind of ran with it and introduced using different materials for the dowel to achieve central balance on a Wa handle. I can see it evolving a bit more.....would be nice to get a little lathe set up in there to make special ones up to use a corby bolt on endcaps and such.
    Cheers

    Spent the morning assembling and gluing handles, so had some time to kill this afternoon waiting for epoxy to set, so I had a little play. I wanted to give silver steel another shot as I have a piece from a 1.25%C batch. I was running some HT and hardness tests in oil vs water quench.... until I got bored and forged this little integral parer. Starting stock was 12mm round. Here it is as forged.

    After a bit of grinding and normalizing.

    Still have some more HT testing to do with the steel before I continue and HT it.....Might try a little Hamon, that would be a first for me though..so don't expect too much
    Blade is an icle wickle one at 68mm. Ahhh
