I just finished putting handles on these Itto-Ryu gyutos with the black mirror finish. They are stout blade with a single bevel...top notch finish and craftsmanship. The 240mm has a stabilized and dyed box elder handle with a buffalo horn ferrule and end cap, the saya is stained ebony and has a carbonite M3 pin. The 210mm has a Gaboon ebony handle with a nickel silver spacer and mosaic pin and a buffalo horn ferrule and end cap. The 240 is sold, but the 210 is available....please contact me via PM, if you are interested.

The dyed handle is a little much for me, but the ebony handle is absolutely gorgeous.

I really like dyed handles, and the lightness of this one contrasts nicely with the dark blade.

Does the saya look the same in person as in the pic? It looks like there is some color detail that got washed out by the flash.

Yes, the saya does have some reddish/brown that is not picked up in the image. The wood is wenge, stained to a dark ebony, but we left so that some of natural wood color shows through...didn't want it to look painted. The handle also has much more depth than what is picked up in the picture.

That's amazing. I wouldn't use it. It's too nice looking.

I like it! :) But what is "black mirror finish"? How is it done?

Absolutely stunning!

We need to convince more curators to do exhibits like this; I'd be all over it.
