Richmond Laser AS 270mm Sujihiki. Original plan was a "Starry Night" handle, but that went all wonky on me. I did up this one for a customer, but the handle install was crooked and when I removed it, the ferrule cracked a bit. So I let the customer pick another handle since we were going for Red and got Pink in this first one. Gold Buckeye Burl ferrule and endcap, Red Maple (Dark Pink) Burl; Red often turns to Pink when it's stabilized/sanded/polished, etc. Acid etched the blade, too.

Yuppo!!! Prob sharpening and shipping Mon or Tues!!! Nice to see a big blazen, they were the rage years ago when I first got into Japanese Knives due to the powder metal Stainless, and then no one really talked about them...I kinda like it!

AS Suji did awesome today at the Game Dinner; 6 Venison roasts and half of a big Bison roast and it was still slicing paper towels afterwards :)
