Hi Matt,

Any interest in doing 4-5 custom handles for some Takeda 240 gyutos?

Absolutely. Send them my way. I have some real nice burls in mind for them already!

Shipping out on Monday Matt. Do whatever you want with them. Your stuff always looks good.

We sold just about all of your last batch of handles BTW.

Thanks Mark. Got the blades Friday. They are sweet! Might have to trade you for one...haha!

It usually takes me a while to figure out what I want to create. Anything you'd like me to use? Is carbon fiber too edgy for a chefs knife?

Any one else have any preference especially if you are in the market for a custom 240mm Takeda gyuto? Let me know. I got serious wood!

WOW, lots of wood and M3!!! The sad thing is that I can name a LOT of those woods! Just spend almost $500 on more M3 yesterday!

Took me all day to decide and cut all the materials for these. 4 of them will go on the Takedas and the rest to fill other orders.

here's a another angle

For the Takedas...probably...
