What's up all! Here are some of my projects I've been working on lately. As usually some of the handles took way longer to make then expected, but all well worth it. Enjoy!
Kamo R2 Damascus 210mm Gyuto - Two tone Curly Hawaiian Koa, M3 and Nickel Silver spacers, Indonesian Ebony Ferrule
Kono 240 HD Gyuto - Snakeskin Sycamore, M3/Blue G10/Nickel Silver Spacers, Black Boxwood Ferrule
Takeda 210 Deba - Spalted Maple, M3 spacers and ferrule
Customers Ikeda 210 Honyaki Gyuto - Snakewood, M3 and Copper Spacers, Blackwood Ferrule. Some of the nicest mirror finish I've seen
Customers Kono 240 Fuji Gyuto - Brown Tiger Striped Maple, Black Mammoth Molar Tooth Spacer, African Blackwood Ferrule
Seizo Imai Western Higonokami
After - Added Blue Lightning Strike Carbon Fiber Scales
Takeda 240 Gyuto - Zirconium Scales, Purple Hawaiian Silkywood Core, Flamed Maple Ferrule and End Cap. The Zirconium was anodized(25 volts) same as titanium in my other threads and then drilled and hand filed.
Turns a cool gunmetal grey when wet
Gold anodized at 11 volts
Tsukasa Hinoura 190 Kitae-Jae Gyuto - Mammoth molar Tooth Scales, Blackwood Core, M3 Gold Spacer, Hawaiian Silkywood Ferrule and End Cap
Still figuring out what to do with these handles. Thinking about putting them on some Yoshikane SLDs...or maybe some Kamo R2s whenever Mark gets them in!
