Thanks, Tom. That one was a custom order. The owner's name is Yamane, and his name is in kanji in the blade. It reads right on both sides. It has a damascus blade, sterling silver habaki and handle pin, carved (not cast) bronze fittings, and an ebony handle. The scabbard is oak with maki-e from a Canadian artisan and lined in calf skin. Thanks for posting the picture, Mike.

 

Tom, I get a kick out of your all steel carved knives, but the puffer fish is neat! One of these days I hope to be able to see your work up close.

 

David
