    Mokume and blue mammoth 240 mm gyuto

    Well, after an insane few weeks at the day job, I finally got a few hours in the shop.

    This customer has been patient and fun to work with, I'm not sure if he is a member here, but I hope he likes it!

    CPM 154 @ HRC 61.5 Hand rubbed finish.

    Tri color mokume bolsters, hidden pins, Black vulcanized fiber liners and spacers on either side of the most solid mammoth
    tooth I have worked with to date! Not to mention, it's a sweet shade of blue!

    Scales are Craig Stevens stabilized Masure Birch.

    Thanks for looking! As always, comments welcomed!

    I like everything about it, profile looks great and the volume and mammoth tooth is phenomenal. I'm sure the new owner will be very well pleased.

    Wow very nice. Love the tooth, who can not like a blue tooth? Well someone with one in their head. Is that mokume like that or is that part of the pic (lighting)? Either way it looks sweet.
    Chewie's the man.

    Yes, that is how the mokume looks, the colors will change as each metal patinas differently (copper and brass, the Nickel/silver will stay bright) These pics are right off the buffer, so it was hard to capture the different metals.
