    Just posted this one on Facebook and thought a few here might like a look...

    #489 was made a while ago but it has just been back in the 'shop after I borrowed it take with me on a recent trip to Japan, I was asked to take a few knives so I thought one at least from a Japanese steel would fit the bill...

    Said steel is layered Suminagashi, like the Bowie a few weeks ago but this time a 1mm core of very sharp with many more layers of protective and more flexible either side, to flex and protect that core...

    The scales are a set of the finest Mammoth Ivory that I think I have ever seen, blue in colour and of a size we seldom see in such quality...

    Subtle, 0.4mm, black liners and nickel silver fixings and fittings finish the deal...

    Anyway, here's the knife...
