    You continue to turn out great knives, Larry. The 1095 San Mai I got from you is getting heavy use and loving it.

    I was curious about the differences you see between your 1095 and teh W-2.

    Larry,

    I'll take this one. I don't have a piece with version of your san mai yet. Paypal inbound.


    Curious, ever going to play around with some more cable? I think a san mai with a cable core might turn out interesting.

    I have a custom folder with the same wood you used on your knife. Very nice looking knife!

    Tasmanian sassafrass is a very good choice for scales or a handle IMO.

    Thanks Todd. Yes, I will be making some more cable blades when the weather cools down a bit so that I can forge. Too hot right now. I will have to try one witha cable core. I will mail your knife today.
