    Here I will post my latest knives...

    So here's my last one, an order from a co worker. He wanted a boning knife, japanese style, an ''hankotsu'' type, to be more specific.

    I like the seamless look from the blade to the handle

    By the way can you explain a little about the scales. I have never heard of "grenadille scales"

    Thanks Brad. For the scales I just found the translation, grenadille (in french) wood is also known as african blackwood, african grenadilo and sometimes sold as ebony. It surely have the density and hardness of ebony but it is not perfectly black. It have some purple, brown shades in it.

    Blackwood is one of my favorites. Used to be available in the Lee Valley scrap bins for cheap.

    A little chubby... :p a blade I've done some time ago but didn't find the time to put an handle on it. Now it's done :
    little chip on the right side near the pin, but that don't bother me too much :mad:...

    That would make a really good (and stylish) kitchen cutter. I really like the simple elegance of your work.
