    This is a 180mm Tosagata "Satsuma knife" from Japan Woodworker's Black Friday sale. I replaced the handle with burnt red oak.

    The handle is a burnt-in friction fit; I scorched it with a butane torch, wire brushed, and then oiled it. P_20190330_151315~2.jpeg

    Thank you! It was a lot of fun, and a good place to start, I think :)
