Small Ho handle wasn't doing it so . . . burl (almond I think?) and ebony. I like these knives, they're cheap, they're tall and they take a stupid sharp edge.

I've been working on hybridizing the Wa/Western style lately - here's another angle - I like the coke bottle shape a lot.

not to oshabby!

mine is sharp as all get out but it came warped out of heat treatment. I didn't really notice it until I went to sharpen it then it is plain as day. The shiny spot on the blade edge in the picture made me think of itso I was wondering if yours was straight.
