I normally etch the laminated Sumingashi I work with, this time I went for a frosted look, polished with waterstone. Not sure if this qualifies as a kasumi (mist) finish. Handle is red linen micarta which I rarely use since I prefer naturals hardwoods

Looking good.

Looks like a real user that you don't have to baby because it has expensive wood on there. I prefer wood myself too. I think my least favorite material to work with is g10.

Noooiiiice... that finish is really subdued but attractive.

Not a big fan of the micarta versus wood and other natural stuff (bone, antler, stacked leather, etc) but that's just my personal aesthetic preference.

Wood is usually nicer, but there is something really appealing about that red micarta handle. Nice work!
