Finished up these in the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!
A customers Takeda with spalted Maple, brass ring and blackwood ferrule.
A customers Masamoto 300mm gyuto with green dyed maple. Polished the blade, fixed his saya and made a green pin for it too.
The handle on my Wustof spat broke. Used some of my scraps to make a new one. Flamed maple and Koa
A Takeda hunter or something. I bought this odd file a while back and found out it's for gun handles. That's how I made the fine grooves on the handle. Made from the scrap bin too.
Flattened and cut up another Echizen Damascus handle. This time a 240 gyuto and made a laminated burl carbon fiber and Maple handle.
Tanaka R2 Damascus with black dyed snakeskin sycamore and white spacers
Suisin 270 gyuto with blue dyed redwood. I really like this one.
Yoshikane SLD 135mm petty with black palm handle and black spacers
Kochi 270 gyuto White #2 clad. The handle isn't attached yet cause I only finished polishing one side so far. It's taking longer than I thought. The handle is Black Titanium and layers of Koa wood and nickel silver spacers.
the unfinished side
I'm not a huge fan of Shuns, but these Fujis are pretty awesome. I hated the handles they came with though(of course)! Before
Shun Fuji 240 gyuto. I experimented inlaying 1/4" thick red ctek into the Indonesian Ebony main handle. The ferrule is spalted maple. Came out ok. I need to improve upon the execution and design.
Shun Fuji 180 santoku. Hawaiian Mango wood, Copper metal and black spacers, African blackwood ferrule
Shun Fuji bread knife. Snakeskin spalted Sycamore, copper metal and black spacers
