Here are a couple of tall petty's (approx 36-37mm tall) that are shipping out today. Both are 52100 carbon steel at 62HRC. The top knife with the K-tip is 160mm and has a dyed and stabilized buckeye burl handle with buffalo horn and nickel-silver accents. The bottom knife is 150mm and has a dyed and stabilized maple burl handle with horn and nickel-silver accents.

Made a mistake in the original posting....the top saya is Indian ebony and the bottom is East Indian rosewood.

Thanks for looking.

I've been busy out of the shop for the past few weeks and a little slack on posting, but here are a couple of projects that I'm wrapping up.

3 sayas and one custom handle. The handle is on an Anryu 240mm hammered gyuto, the 2 other sayas are for Takaeda's.

2 more sayas for a Moritaka and an Anryu.

Thanks for looking.

Thx buddy....TruOil is my go to finish, usually 5-8 coats depending on the wood. On the Wenge, I applied several coats of CA to fill grain and micro cracks, then TruOil.

This is how tough my blades are...I was trying to mark one of the Petty's in the photo above....I used a hardened steel and a carbide tipped punch, both tips broke off and I was just using a very small 5oz tack hammer to strike the punches with.
