Very aggressive looking knife, the striped ebony goes well with that amazing hamon.

Well done!

I think the blade is wonderful.

 

I'm going to say something that may not be well received...I'm no expert knife maker...but I have an artistic eye and an opinion from that perspective...and it's only one person's way of looking at it but....

 

To my eye the handle wood selection is "fighting' with the blade, which is without doubt the "star" of this show. I believe a more subdued, monotone material would have worked much better from a purely aesthetic view, and that awesome wood would have been better on a non-hamon blade so it could shine on its own.

 

From a technical perspective its obviously way beyond my talents and my hat's off to your skills, and as you see above there's plenty who think I'm all wet...so don't put too much stock in what I say.

JC - I quenched in Parks #50, Matt - I think it's more luck than skill + some good instruction from Don Fogg and this forum, Ray - I see your point and will look at it for the next one. Thanks to all! Scott

i see Rays point about the visual combat between handle and blade. However I think that if your handle were a solid color it wouldnt work for me because there is so much going on with the blade. I think the two actually have a visual equilibrium as is.
