I'm trying a little different profile on this one, and I'm trying to decide what I want to do with the handle. I have this piece of curly maple that I was thinking of doing a wa-yo hybrid sort of thing with, but now I'm not so sure. It has a bronze bolster, and will have a pin of some sort.
I'm currently working on the finish on the blade and letting the juice in the handle cure a bit more, just to be safe. It is getting close!
I decided to go with a wa handle, and still have some fine tuning on it to do.
