    Very nice. If you want you can send me the knife and I will give it a review and keep it for my services? Think about it.

    lol very good. I can tell you that these are all I use and they work beautifully. I bought a few pieces of lace maple burl that had been stabilized and the grain patterns are really something.

    Beautiful knife. I think I see a hamon on the blade. Is that edge hardened?

    Is it wrong to be aroused by a beautiful knife?

    yep it's a hamon. It was clay quenched. I don't polish them out much but I do etch the blade. Gives it that old timey look

    I do like that Lace Maple burl and wonder what you might think about using Birdseye Maple on one.
    It would look good with the BM grips on my Sig P938.

    As you can see in this pic my "survival" knife has a hamon too. The maker used differential heat treating so it would be Ok if I needed to do some chopping with it and he then bead blasted the blade as I requested. The difference in steel hardness created the hamon. It was unintentional but I really like the effect.
