Todd - That's awesome, really glad you like it. It took a considerable amount of restraint not to buy one of these from CKTG myself. Takeda makes a great knife. On a side note, I love using my new Kamo R2 gyuto, with a new handle of course! Pictures to come later.

Mad - Wow, that is a great compliment, thank you. It'd be my pleasure to make you something special. Let me know what kind of material you're into. I've also wanted to try making a handle for my Spyderco native. Rehandling tactical knives is something I'm looking into getting into, as my own collection is growing.
