I’ve been bad about posting on here. first off this thing is very cool. I didn’t even know they made these like this. It’s 210, VG10, amazing convex grind. I didn’t take any before pictures, but trust me, the fit and finish was rough. Anyways here’s it finished with maple burl and brass pins.

First time I’ve seen any sun for a while here in Seattle, nice timing

Such a nice looking job!
Solid attention to detail--so much better than stock--nicer looking but also better lines.

Damn. I have a Tanaka in storage. I'm inspired. I've been bad about posting pics of my handle stuff to.

Great job.

These western Tanaka’s are unicorns in my book. Solid usable grind, comfy western bolster with lots of potential if you fix em up right
