    So I finally got the drill bits.









    Oh yeah, first D shape I made.



    Tomorrow Kato is going to action again. Finally.
    Yea, the handle is installed little upwards, just how I prefer.

    I can't believe that is the first D-shaped handle you've made; amazing!

    I think the handle you made is a big improvement in the looks department (hopefully in the performance department as well).

    Is that Shig in the first saya upside down?

    yes sir, that is Shig.

    Johnny, thanks a lot. I just looked at the old handle, sanded down those two bits of wood i glued together a little, checked again and sanded some more and so on. It took some time but I like D shape over octagon, so was worth the investment of time, imho. The balance improved now, with the heavier handle.

    gentlecook, thanks

    I put the handle from my 240 shigefusa gyuto onto my 270 kato, gyuto and the burnt chestnut from kato gyuto onto my kato suji. I think it is a better fit for both[IMG][/IMG]

    what are your impressions of the suji as a cutter?

    I love It! It has the same grind as the gyuto but is much thinner, it is still around 5mm at the handle but it tapers down dramatically! Best slicer I've tried.

    The handle change on the sugi makes good sense . I picked up one of these as well and the stock handle is much too narrow for me.

    Yeah, I'd say this one is bordering on too big, but a big improvement on the original. How do you like the knife so far?
