Absolutely gorgeous. Do you do re-handles professionally?

I really like the way the petty came out in particular.

Yeah, the petty feels really nice in the hand! The Wa style handle is still a bit blocky, gotta work on trimming it down and rounding it out a bit more into more of an oval shape. It's more like a rounded rectangle now. It's a slower working one because the eyes like to pop out if you go too aggressively with the sanding belts or files.

TAZ <>. I agree, in that, I really like how the petty came out. Design looks like a really smooth transition.

I tried to kinda go with the damascus pattern in front of the handle, but it was a bit sharp, so I brought it back a tad. Still gotta do some clean up and smoothing, I need to taper the front of the petty a tad more. On the Nakiri, I've been fondling it tonight and I am going to make some more adjustments to it. Take down the top of the handle a tad and round it out a bit more. I will get some pics when these are fully finished, but these pics show the wood nicely!
For the Nakiri handle, I did it a bit differently. I took a block of wood and sliced it, but now down the middle. I Dremeled out the thicker side to fit the tang in so when the 2 pieces were put together, the tang hole was in the middle and the seam was slightly offset. It worked, but I've been playing with a few different ways to do the Wa style handles. My favorite so far is still the aluminum tubing method!

Cleaned up the handles a bit more, thinner down the Nakiri a bit and got some better pics!

This wood has some crazy figure to it! Different sides have different grain patterns almost!!
I'm glad I ordered several more pieces of this stuff
