Got some quality Shed Time in today!
2 for the Game Dinner Raffle Prizes, hunting knife blade blank is still in transit:
Fujiwara FKM 150mm petty with Redwood Burl:
Pimped out my Yamashin Funy! I had reground and acid etched it a while back, original handle was too long and square, so I did another one. This is the faux Ivory front and rear and Blue Pearl middle.
The Faux Black Pearl is more subdued, looks like the brighter colors of this stuff pop out more!
Monster of a knife! Blazen (I think??) 270mm Yo Gyuto converted to a Wa, full bolster removal, Gold Buckeye Burl ferrule and butt cap, Red Maple Burl handle. The Maple is kinda on the border of Pink/Red depending on the lighting. I guess this is common with reds; they are rarely true red and end up being more like a dark pink color.
