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 ? Handle is Amara ebony - in reality it is somehow brighter and more brownish color than on pictures . You can find some more WIP pics on my FB. I hope you will like it and have a nice day , Petr DORONI Blade - W damascus steel 1,2842 (O2) + 75ni8 Uddeholm (15N20) Guard - W damascus steel 1,2842 (O2) + 75ni8 Uddeholm (15N20) Handle - Amara ebony Average length - 49 cm (approx- 19.3 inches) , blade - 33 cm (approx- 13 inches).
