    The wa-estern, my favorite style of western handle. It looks a bit narrow for that blade, and I would rather see the ferrule not angled like that; but this is just my opinion from looking at the photos. The blade looks good, and I like the look of the handle overall.

    I think the bolster is made from imitation crab stix....

    I like it, especially the top of the tang shot.

    Never mind the bollocks um I mean pollock. Reminds me much more of Japan's rising sun.
    That knife handle really looks good!

    That's a nice wide Ealy Handle. Proportions look good.

    Thank you for not putting Machi on your western handle.
