Lol the tanaka did ok
Okay, here it is....
......my Kejiro Doi 270mm kiritsuke. This thing has what is (IMHO) a great factory D handle.
It's great, but it's no mhenry. This thing would be even sweeter. Even if I don't win, I'm very excited to see what this "surprise handle" looks like!!!
thanks Mark and Mike for doing this. Very cool idea.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
"See... the problem here is that... my little brother, this morning, got his arm caught in the microwave, and uh... my grandmother dropped acid and she freaked out, and hijacked a school bus full of... penguins, so it's kind of a family crisis... so come back later? Great."

I'll do my best to give this a two week turn around too
My favorite. My Kanisaki deba. My King Crab knife.
Thanks to both of you for such a great contest.
Does having one in the mail count? If so This should be arriving early next week - a Carter Kurouchi Sujihiki
Wow, can't pass up this opportunity, crazy new wood and custom handle:
Here is the first...and last knife I ground, after grinding it Mr. Thomas looked at it and said "I think I can save it". He did and now I have a pretty dang good 210 gyuto, but I have not had a chance to finish the handle yet.
Thanks for doing this Mark and Mike, very cool idea and happy future birthday Mark!
Most generous contest! I too would love to have my CCK rehandled...
once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
I always want Mike's custom handle! here you go, my brand new shig 245mm gyuto...
