    Luke and David (Bloodroot) make fantastic knives. You're very likely to absolutely love it, Pete. Great buy!

    Here's what Luke had to say about it…

    "The blade is to your dimensions, HRC 63 from a highway boom-saw blade, in the 50's HRC on the top 1/3 of the blade (differentially tempered). Very thin behind the edge but it's a pretty stiff blade due to the strong distal taper. It's convex/hybrid grind, with stronger convexity on the right face than the back and from heel to tip. The handle is a R-hand D with blackwood, spacer, and our spalted maple burl. The burl is stabilized, but unlike some stabilization does slightly grain raise with use for a grippier surface than a straight polish."

    Here's a picture of the awesome distal taper.

    That looks very nice. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of price range was that in?

    The Takamura Hana arrived yesterday and already had it's first day of work. It seems like a fine piece of work. Light and delicate yet solid. Here are the pictures some of you asked for.

    Well, hopefully the knife lasts longer than the Yoichi did.
    Nice to see one that shares my taste.

    I personally prefer Takamura Hana over Tanaka ironwood. Both knives have similar cutting performance but Takamura has slightly better food release & I love Integrated WA Handle more than western handle!
