nice knife Ray, too bad you have to let it go.
I agree mate but I never used it and it makes me sad to have a fine piece like that sit in a drawer. Plus I really blew my wallet these past couple of months on some blades that I have to cover a bit. I,m happy with the outcome ;)

Re: Let's make a Gassan 210mm Gyuto

I think Jeff's comments are absolutely on point. My personal tastes do not fall with these shapes. I prefer a taller blade like the original Gassan Blue #2, which was very tall for the length. A taller Kanehide might light my fire but the standard height on those knives does not work for me. Having ...

Mahalo Bob. Yes, Isaiah does really beautiful work. Wanted to keep the handle but it just is not worth the risk.

Itto Ryo Nakiri w/Custom Handle and Saya - SOLD!

Up for grabs is my Itto Ryu Nakiri. Isaiah Schroeder made the beautiful Handle and Saya. Lacewood saya, sycamore ferrule, musk ox horn and bronze spacers, dyed curly ash body, and a mokume gane end cap. I used it a few times and it's been in the drawer ever since. Multiple recent purchases force the...

Re: Please help save my Shig!

Hi mate! It seems to have calmed down now. I haven't had time to try to remove the blemishes. But I really have to try. It is quite ironic that 2 of the finest examples of knife making in my collection should both have been afflicted by this. I'm pretty sure most of it can be removed. And in the end...
