    Would you have a pic of your custom Watanabe Honyaki?

    Got this little beauty on its way to TX.
    Comet 220x53 205g gyuto. 1018 reactive cladding and W2 core. Tasmanian Blackwood handle.
    This is made from Treys first san mai billet he forged welded himself, so a special blade if only for that fact. Hand forged down to 2mm without power tools. Finished on Jnats. 4mm out the handle, super thin choil, and a really great progressive distal taper.

    Lovely. Just lovely. I'm a big fan of these single-piece handles, too.

    I had the choice to go with an African blackwood ferrule but I think for this knife it would have been a detraction. The one piece has a more contemporary vibe for me. I also wanted the exposed plug ala Xerxes rather than a G10 cap.

    Thanks, it's an awesome and a very pretty blade! The mirror polish is done to perfection. The next projects with this honyaki: I will be working on the Hamon line to make it more pronounced and at some point will make a custom handle.
    It took many months for Watanabe to make the blade, so I was so happy when it arrived!

    Duy Pham Stainless Petty from his recent giveaway /w handle by Ben Seigal (@Bensbites)
    Amazing handle, way better than what I had imagined it to be, and absolute pleasure to work with.

    Ikeda San is looking out for us lefties. I’d hug him if I could.
    Edit: I guess I actually owe credit to Kasahara

    The machi is the “T” section of the tang.
    A gap is a gap. Some people prefer the Machi flush with the handle like I do.

    If it has no Machi then its a straight tang.

    I can post pictures if you don’t understand.

    So, it’s the step where the neck meets the thinner tang, ie the top of the ‘T’?

    I've seen that picture before, but unless I have misinterpreted, @osakajoe disagrees with you. And perhaps @JBroida does too, given that the Kochi in question is "with machi", but doesn't have the gap pictured in your diagram. But I won't speak for them...

    Edit: unless the machi is supposed to be the thin part of the tang in its entirety, so that in the picture, they just label what’s visible. Anyway, I don’t know anything...

    Damn you Carlos! ;) Interest piqued on looks alone.
    I'm meant to be on a knife buying hiatus. You could always help out by telling us it's a really poor performer... :rolleyes:
