This Richmond Ultimatum was profiled after the KS. After this blade was reground, a step beyond thinning, by @makeitsharper, I prefer it to a KS -GASP. This blade is mated to a custom designed handle made from redwood lace, bog oak, and box elder. Pictures don’t do this Justice!

Another handle, another happy customer. This gentleman now has five of my handles, I told him I need a family portrait when he chooses the blade. Zebrawood, Ebony, and Indian rosewood all work well together!

This is one of my newer one piece olivewood handles on a Artifex 52100 210 mm gyuto after @cjmeik did the wa conversation and reground the blade.

You do a great job Ben. It's been fun watching you progress with your handle making!
If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.
