    Thanks!

    Actually it’s not too bad. Grinds easily. Very durable. But the dust gets everywhere when it’s sanded.

    Very nice. But G10 is not the only Hazzard amongst handle materials we use. Carbon fiber can cause pulmonary fibrosis and cardiac failure. Rosewood family woods such as rosewood, ebony, cocobolo have oils that when volatilized in the dust particles are directly pulmonary toxic. Pick you poison ! :confused:

    That nakiri looks like a mean machine! Of course the handle material choices are great too, nice!

    All synthetic fibers that are sharp and that does not degrade in human tissue will cause lung cancer. its just a matter of time/exposure. Of course something else, could, in theory kill you before this happens.
    In china they make carbon fiber bike frames. A chinese carbon fiber worker has an average "lifetime" of 3 years. just saying. just dont go swimming in this sh1t.
