Konosuke Sakai "Silver" 330mm Sakimaru Takohiki. Special ordered this knife from Mark before he started selling these on the website. The handle looked awesome but I never got comfortable withe the shape of it. So yes I did...I took it off and did a new one. Then watched a couple of Youtube videos and made my own custom fit Kydex sheath.

If anyone is familiar with the Echizen "coreless" damascus knives, here's what I did to it...

and then put on a black titanium and lightning strike carbon fiber handle. The damascus pattern and the shape of the handle reminds me of the Star Trek Enterprise.
