I just had a 240 mm Hiromoto rehandled and etched by Tim Johnson. This is the result:

I'm quite happy with it!

Originally the plan was to have the knife thinned before etching. But apparently Hiromoto have changed their production. This knife was already very thin behind the edge. Luckily the etching still worked out beautifully without the thinning.

Beware: there are two Tim Johnsons active on this forum and both are knife makers! :o This must be a secret plot by Mark ;) . The Hiromoto was done by Tim Johnson of Black Stone. I also happen to have a knife rehandled by the other Tim Johnson (taz575) and he does great work, too!

Super cool looking knife!

That knife rocks! I'm going to have to get a Hiromoto before they're all gone!

Thanks for this post mark76! I was so mad at myself forgetting to take a decent picture of this before I sent it. I loved this knife. They are really fun to do.

I am currently taking orders (but not starting any until October). Just need to take a little time to spend with the family after a very busy summer.

just email me tim@blackstoneknife.com
