Here's the 270mm gyuto I am making with the Dammy that was forged at Randy's Hammer in. I tried my hand at file work on the handle spine,it's was a PITA.

Thanx....I had no idea what I was doing with the file work.I had to bring the laptop out to the garage and stare at the knife you made and try and figure the pattern. I guess if I had any brains I would of tried artsy file work for the first time on some mild steel for practice.

I think the file-work is good without any qualifiers, but remarkable for a first attempt. BTW is it weird that I like doing file work?

I am trying to choose a bolster material,which one do you guys think would look better with the ironwood. I also have some black micarta if I what to tone it down a bit.

I think I would go bolster-less on this knife, I just couldnt make myself cut the ironwood. Its so pretty!!!!!!!

That's some gorgeous Ironwood Mario. If you go with a bolster you know I like that green stuff. Beautiful work on the knife by the way.

I think the tooth will look nice.

But bolsterless with copper fittings would look really nice after the patina sets in...
That's some mighty nice Ironwood, I say let it shine.

Beautiful stuff, metal and wood. That Ironwood is just fabulous. I like the contrast of the light colored tooth better, but I am not sure if it won't bring it over the top. Something contrasting with less figuring would be my choice for a bolster. Not that I could think of anything specific right now...

We are on the same page. I planned on using copper pins and a copper/black fiber liner.

Very nice stuff Mario! Going to be one sexy knife when it is finished! I agree with the no bolster thing...That is too nice to not be the center of attention.

Nice! So is this getting iron wood, or is there another wood choice in mind?
