Here's a weird project that a friend tasked me to try. He sent me one of his Murray Carter damascus neck knives and requested that I etch it with copper. I gladly accepted the challenge because when else would I get to try this, not many people are willing to fork over such a pricey knife for an experiment.
Besides our normal sharpening service and making custom knives we also do all sorts of upgrades & reconfiguration work as well. One such example is this Misono Swedish Steel (carbon) Dragon Sujihiki that we converted from a western handle to a wa handle.
The handle we installed is HI Cook Pine & streaked buffalo made by Stefan Keller of JapaneseHandles.com
