    Thanks Guys, On monday I hope to get Judd's and Michael's blades done to the point of heat treatment and on their way to being ground. I will start getting the handle pieces together and hand finished. I will run through the handle spec for each so we know where we are.

    David Small Gyuto and Suji.
    Handles to the smaller size you like 12cm, short choil. Materials - Damascus ferrule and endcap - wood to be determined, I have a choice for you.
    Balance, - On choil

    Sean Gyuto
    I'll e-mail you regarding hand size
    Materials damascus ferrule and endcap with two tone amboyna.
    Balance -On choil

    Aphex - Gyuto
    As I remember large hand size, 14cm?
    Materials - Mokume front and endcap, blackwood ferrule/copper spacer and your provided Ironwood.
    Balance - on choil or plus 20mm

    Judd - Suji
    Stainless front end cap and spacer with bog oak ferrule and Wood provided. Smaller size, 12cm? and slim
    Balance - An inch infront of choil

    Matt - Gyuto
    Let me know the measurement diagonally across your hand or your preference in handle length.
    I'll get some wood choices laid out next week for you.
    On Choil/ plus 20mm

    Michael Gyuto
    Handle, let me know the measurement diagonally across your palm, or preference in size.
    Blackwood ferrule, mammoth spacer, I'll give you a choice of wood next week and brass endcap.
    On choil/plus 20mm

    On the balance the damascus ferrule and fitting ones are a struggle to keep the balance forward. It will be choil/front of handle.

    Anything not right or i need to know, let me know folks. Cheers
    Will

    Bog oak? *** is Bog Oak? It sounds like something you put gold bond blue on to ease the itching/burning feeling.

    bog oak- oak trees submerged in an oxygen free environment for thousands of years ( peat bogs, swamps and such) the trees partially turn to lignite or jet by absorbing the minerals and chemicals in the bog. Most bog oak is Black or very dark brown a it has begun to transform, thousand or millions of years from now it will turn to coal.

    Lol, I spat my tea out when I read this. Don't worry Judd, it looks nice, can be brown to jet black, often used by pipe makers. These bits are stabilized too. I think there is one bit of wenge somewhere and lots of blackwood, so there is choice. And there will be wood pictures as preparations are made.


    And thank Son for the explanations you know your minerals and things for sure.
    The term bog oak for me always reminds me of the slightly gloomy Irish Poetry we read at school, but thats me getting carried away now, like Pesky.
