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.

Suisin 270 gyuto with blue dyed redwood. I really like this one.

Yoshikane SLD 135mm petty with black palm handle and black spacers
Image

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.

I'm not a huge fan of Shuns, but these Fujis are pretty awesome. I hated the handles they came with though(of course)!

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.
