    Ahhh. Finally I fixed it so the pictures show instead of the links.

    Thanks Rob. O-1 is one of my favorite steels.

    That's very nice! It's sporting clean lines and you hid the pins well on this one.

    Is the redwood burl dyed black?

    Veeeeery neat work and beautiful shape. O-1 steel is impossible to find here, unless you import it.

    Thanks guys.

    Dan. I don't remember for sure but it is either black or more likely a dark blue.

    Hephaestus. O-1 is actually the easiest blade steel for me to get locally. They stock all of the common thicknesses up to at least 1/2 inch. Too bad shipping is so expensive to Europe.
