So, this sakimaru arrived to me rusted with multiple chips and a rotted ebony handle. Apparently left in a sink...

The splitter received a wa conversion.

Both handles kept simple to compliment the vintage look of the splitter and classy look of the slicer.

Bringing these in from Japan and finishing the profile, polished spine and choil, etch...

This is a 165mm funayuki profile (unique to me) in blue #2 clad in nashiji stainless.

The handle is Rosewood, ctek, g10, and spalted tamarind. The saya is red gum with matching tamarind pin.

Probably one of my favorite combos yet.

So this little Dojo chef received one of my first rehandles years ago. Thought is was time for an update.

Also, a few in for sanding, refinishing, sayas, pins, etc....

Oh, and a Jolly Rancher fish spat.
