Ben's sweet sweet wood.

Post by ChefKnivesToGo » Thu Jun 07, 2018 3:03 pm

Ben sent me some killer wood a while ago and we finally finished some handles. Take a look. I'll update this thread as I post more of them.

What we currently do is we make handles and put them on knives and offer them up. I still do customs for customers where I show them a photos and they select the blade and the handle but I don’t advertise it because it’s a pain in the ass But for regular guys like you Jeffry, I’m always happy to do it. :)

You know, I was not a huge fan of my Moritaka but that KS clone gets me every time. I just looks "mean". I like it.

Looks like Tasmanian blackwood with spalted maple ferrules? These were made by Alton? Looking good! :thumbsup:

I'm going to start sounding like a broken record but we're having a CKTG party in Chicago on September 16th from 1-4pm. We'll be bringing in 3 blacksmiths from Japan (Kato, Kurosaki and Shibata) for the event and a bunch of our forum members are coming. I only hold 1 party every 20 years so don't miss it! :)

I guess we must be delmar but here goes...I almost didn't open the thread afraid of the images I might not be able to get out of my head! :?
And, what's Mark doing looking at Ben's wood anyway! :shock:
