Some of My Works 3

Thu Feb 13, 2014 8:01 am

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
Image
Image

Takeda 210 Deba - Spalted Maple, M3 spacers and ferrule
Image
Image

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

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.

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!

the tsukasa is outstanding... the mammoth molar handle sublines the real value of this knife.

Amazing handles ! As I PM to you the coloring of the M3 spacers on the Kamo really accents the look of the cool matte Damascus blade. I want that handle on my Kamo! Great work.

That Ikeda is sick. I like what you did with that higonokami. Really gives it some character.
