    hey guys,

    here is a small batch of simplistic japanese cutlery.
    japanese made blades are sharp but could be a lot sharper - I'll leave that to you (aogami / super aogami will take and keep a scary edge).


    fit and finish are as good as it gets - no glue stains nor tang hole burning.
    tang holes drilled and filed, glued and pinned down.

    concerning the materials:
    - bog oak - oak harvested from riverbeds/bogs, found only on few locations on Earth.
    pieces I use are at least a couple of thousand years old, extremely dark with silver streaks.
    - hawthorn / boxwood - hardest wood (shrub, actually) found in Europe, dense, elastic - with extremely small pores and fine grain.
    used by Romans and Greeks for spear shafts, tool/weapons handles.

    ok, that's it.
    drop me a message for questions and suggestions.

    cheers,
    Mile

    Agreed, the funayuki is the one that speaks to me.
    How thick is the blade stock?

    hey Brian, sent you a message to your home email - I consider mini deba SPF.

    Armidabo, can't say for certain since it's on it's way, but somewhere between 3.5 and 4mm at the thickest portion of the spine.

    cheers,
    Mile
