    Chop Shop

    Welcome to Hattorichop's Chop Shop,

    I will be posting photos here of everything I make related to kitchen knives.
    I will start by showing you my 300mm kikuichi suji I just finished converting from western to wa.
    I used a piece of spalted sycamore I picked up from Mark at Burl Source.

    Here is the finished product, the black spacer is a piece of ebony from the original scales on the knife.

    Nice, but I want to see some pics of the actual shop itself too.
    Are you going to do any westerns?

    Here is my Masakage 240mm gyuto I rehandled with a piece of ironwood burl I got from Randy at HHH knives.

    HaHa, I guess my title was a little misleading. The coffee table you see in the picture is pretty much my shop.
    I also make stained glass lamps and such and I do all my glass cutting and soldering there. I do use my power tools outside on the picnic table but I do all the finishing on the coffee table.
    I just though Hattorichop's Chop Shop had a nice ring to it.

    Beautiful work Karl. The new handle on that masakage makes me wish I had taken you up on your offer to use it. The new handle is soo much better,but I was pleasantly suprised with the quality of the stock handle on mine.

    Knyfeknerd, I do want to try a western re-handle on one of my own knives. Dave makes it look pretty easy but I have a feeling it will be quite a challenge.

    Mike, the offer still stands if you want to give it a go.
