    Finished this one up and figured i would show a few pics. Blade is W2, 240mm, small hamon and cocobolo handle with blackwood ferrule and buttcap. Also has a cocobolo saya.

    Grind is pretty thin, with the spine sitting at about 2.1mm. What do you guys think?

    I really like the blade profile and the beautiful handle. Will have to wait to hear about the grind, though :cool2:

    Sorry i had to dig up the choil shot of it and upload it. I have learned a bit more since i made the last gyuto (Mark Farley's) this is officially my second....Hoping they keep improving, and that the new owner enjoys it :)

    Nice!!!! Really good looking cocobolo has gotten hard to find. I think that a lot of folks don't like it because all they ever see is the straight grained stuff, much the same as with some of the hard to get rosewoods. By the way, the knifemaker hands look okay. Good skin to scar tissue ratio.:biggrin:

    Very nice looking knife Mike.

    I use my Gyuto all the time and it is a really good cutting knife.
    I think you are one of the few who learns quickly and gets things right from the start..
    Me, I figure out all the wrong ways to do something first, then I go on to doing things the right way.

    Na Bob just had a Auction last night-today. The petty and 9 or 10 inch (can't remember correctly) chefs knife went for 32k.

    They looked sweet too. And now back to the regularly scheduled thread.
