    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.

    Yes this is my handiwork. Time spent between keeping a family and running a business.
    Thanks everyone

    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
