    the handle is two pieces that have been routed out for the tang and then glued back together. the pins are there to make sure that the handle dosen't come apart.

    Ok
    Surfed on EE to se if it was common on horn handles, and yes. I only found one without a pin: http://www.epicureanedge.com/shopexd.asp?id=88835
    All others had pins Some more than one pin as well

    I have an other question as well then. This means this what not used when picture was taken?

    The santoku handle is a one piece handlemof musk ox horn so no worry about it coming apart. the Gyoto picture was taken before the pins were put in. I do this often to give a customer the option of changing their mind if the handle is not to their liking. I can change the handle alot easier if the pins are not in and the scales can be used for another knife.

    Thanks

    But what is done differently on the blades?
    Its etched and highlighted?

    How come you are not doing it on the last piece?
