Nice work, Tim! I like them all. The 3-layer liner looks very sophisticated, and I love that spalted pecan . . .

The Honyaki is nicely ground and has a visible temper line. It took a bit longer to sharpen than White steels normally do, but it still felt nice on the stones. Handle is fairly narrow, but other than that, it looks like a nice blade!

The purple is killer. Might be one of the best purple handles I've seen. Always feel like purple handles get no love.

+1 on the purple handle. It's not the sort of thing I would ever buy or commission, but as a gift I would probably think it was the best thing on earth.

Yeah, in the pics it's a bit more purple than it is in real life for some reason? Looks nice though! Customer ordered the block for me to use, so I used it!
