    How do you like 1.2562 as compared to others you’ve had? I want to try this steel, but can’t find anyone to make me a knife in it. Both blades are beautiful.

    Sometimes a knife doesn't turn out quite as beautiful as hoped for. :(

    More beautiful if left with this type of finish IMHO:

    But at least the handle is decent:

    That's the knife life: win some, lose some. :rolleyes:

    Think I have two more knives in this still, but need to ask first again to the maker. I love it, the steel is just stupid good and Robin did a superb job on the shape and on the ht of the blade.

    Sounds great. Wish I had access to this steel... You know where to find me once you decide to move to something else;)

    Sorry to hear you don't like it. Give it a bit of time. Otherwise, I'm quite sure you will find a buyer for it.

    240 Tsukasa Hinoura- to say this is one of the most beautiful objects I've ever held would be an understatement... this thing is really special.

    BEAUTIFUL!

    Did you track it down from one of the retail sources mentioned in your thread? Where did you get it, inquiring minds want to know. :)

    Another member responded to my BST post and had it unused, purchased from JKI... I'm feeling very grateful towards this group of folks right now!

    Yeah, I really don't understand this trend of so many knives on BST recently that have never been used, not even once?!?

    Hey- just to be clear- I was only joshing (Aussie slang for a friendly joking tease).

    Besides- We've all had these impure thoughts at times
