    Hi everyone :)

    I just finished this "Japan" style knife. Im not sure how to call this style .. modern wakizashi because it is pretty long or modern tanto maybe ? [​IMG] Handle is Amara ebony - in reality it is somehow brighter and more brownish color than on pictures [​IMG] . You can find some more WIP pics on my FB. I hope you will like it and have a nice day , Petr [​IMG]
