    So, Who Would Be Willing To Take The Plunge On This Project?

    Not even sure if this is the right place for this but... here it goes anyway.

    Thinking about turning this (a somewhat rare knife that some of you may recognize from back in the day).
    Pretty sure it is the same core steel as the Ikeda / Akifusa









    Into something like this (another knife some of you may recognize from WAY BACK in the day).




    Who can do it? Who would be the best option?

    Will it cost me an arm and a leg?

    I'm more about the profile of the blade than the handle but a new nice handle would be cool too.

    yeah I mean that would be the main thing... I could always send it somewhere for a handle... plenty of those guys around.
