]First one i have for sale in my webstore :)

I got 2 custom made Hunting knives from Yoshi with Custom made handles out of very Rare Japanese wood Jindai-Keyak, unlike ordinary Zelkova, it has elegant dark brown color. ”Jindai” means the age of gods which refers to an ancient time before Emperor Kanmu (737-806) ascended the throne. It dates back over 2600 years, although we never know Jindai-Keyaki is truly from that ancient time. However, it is said at least more than 1000 years is needed to be dyed in its deep tone of a color.

They are made with hand forged hammer finish bulster and mosaic pin.
Steel is SKD

I like the shig. It looks almost to clean for its age. Of coarse people have said the same to me.
