My Anryu 240 got some new shoes courtesy of Carter Hopkins.

Takedas got sayas, also from Carter.
Looking awesome! I'm really considering getting an Anryu.

Do they behave like fujis? I'm interested in these but I have never been a fan of the Kono Fujis.

Little taller, little more heft, over all better performance imo

Agreed Nick. Way more heft. Not so finished at the spine. Great knife over all.

Whoa! That’s saying a lot. I’ve never used either, but I know the Fuji rep.

I have had this handle design in my head for almost a year, but I was waiting for the right knife to come along. Matt had to custom order the scales, and it came out even better than I had imagined. The handle construction of the body and ferrule is carbon fiber weave with M3 black titanium core. The spacer is mother of pearl with red G10 and brass.

Matt definitely knows his way around a lot of different materials. He actually enjoys playing around with the less commonly used stuff so he was excited to work on this design for me. Super creative & super meticulous, and it always shows in the end product.
