    Arrived safely. Ryuichi’s work is wonderful. The clip blade action is smooth as silk.

    Yes his stag is consistently wonderful and he’s super nice to deal with as well!

    Ryu is one of the finest makers in the world with the finest stag in the world

    The two that I own...previously posted but the images have apparently gone missing.

    The first one was purchased from Dan Delavan of Plaza Cutlery. The second was commissioned from Ryu with my requested changes to his standard cattle pattern.

    I don’t know how he finds such great stag! And you are right about him being among the finest makers.

    Wow these are two stunning knives!

    Yes he is one of the best makers out there. And a super super nice person.

    Blues, that improved trapper is stunning. I just told my wife earlier that after blade, if I don't find a custom improved trapper there, I'm going to have Ryu make me one.

    I am a newbie to knife collecting, but the stag I am seeing in these last few posts is unbelievable. Having popcorn stag going bolster to bolster and being that thin is unreal! I wish more folks could do it that way.

    There's no way this one will remain in mint condition.
