This is a Konosuke Fujiyama Kiritsuke 240mm that I did a custom handle and saya for. The knife was purchased without a handle by one of CKTG's customers and shipped to me for the handle work.

Thanks for the nice comments guys. The main part of the handle is snakewood, the ferrule is Amazon rosewood, and the spaces and endcap are brass and ebony. The saya is from a 25 year old piece of rosewood that I have. The little knife holder is cherry with snakewood sides.

The handle finish is Waterlox, it is tung oil based. Waterlox is used frequently on hardwood floors and countertops....it is very durable and really brings out a depth to the wood grain.

Thanks, I've heard of it but never used it, yet. Looks great!
