    I love the look of that handle with the lapis. Where’s the balance point? Also can we get some pics of that taper and choil?

    Beautiful piece and an incredibly low price point for the amount of work. Someone should snatch this up!

    Very nice indeed!

    I feel that this forum is somewhat Wa handle biased. I think you can fetch more $$ with less work if you focus on creating Wa J knives. Just a guts feeling, I could be wrong thou.

    Got the knife and it is stunning, the tang shots don't show the zero grind.

    A very, very impressive knife

    This made me chuckle. Always hard not to focus on the butt.
    Here's something to try- cut a piece of wax paper (not parchment) and tape it to a window. The diffused light that comes through on a sunny day makes for a perfect set up for choil shots. Make sure to keep the butt of the handle out of the frame. I typically will rest my cell phone perpendicular against the butt of the handle.
    Wax paper is thinner than parchment, but the parchment will work in a pinch.

    Just learned a trick on my iPhone, Tap on the place you want to focus, the iPhone will focus onto that spot & my iPhone choil shots are much better than before without paper tricks.
