    San Mai Gyuto and nakiri. (set)

    Hello. I just finished up a couple I have been working on and wanted to share a few images with you all.

    Blades are Blue#2 and stainless cladding.
    Handles are Meteorite damascus bolster with stabilized snakewood, Paired with copper fittings and pins, touched off with a little file work.

    Thanks for looking. Comments and critiques welcomed.

    Blessings
    Randy.

    Really cool blades, The way the etching of the san mai and meteorite damascus are almost equivalent is really cool and very complementary, The file work is also beautiful, I love how its just at the top of the handle, its a subtle detail that really classes the blades up a notch, unfortunately I dislike snakewood and therefore dont really like the handle, the copper fittings and black liners are also quite nice and do complement the wood well.

    Randy - I always find myself repeating myself when I talk about your incredible work ... simply stunning!

    The file work is, as always, just amazing - taking it around the butt end of the handle - inspirational! Well done Sir!

    .

    Is the file work filled in with something or are they open spaces?
