It seems anytime you post up, my jaw drops down. What an awesome way to respect those vintage Forgecrafts... C'est Magnifique! And the patina on the Shigefusa, is at an awesome state right there
Not to mention the spacer/end cap & spacer/ferrule configuration!
All those burls & spacers & ferrules are just... what can I say - drop jaw gorgeous. And the "groove" in the Boardsmith, cool way to hold scrap/product.
I swear if I owned a knife like that, I would never use it... I'd just want to put it up in a case & stare at it. Why I won't allow myself to handle my steel with art like that. DAMN IT IS HOT THOUGH
