Smile More Kodzukas. Beauty and the Beast.

Just finished these 2 for a customer. Both are 1095, forged blades, flat ground, clay-backed edge quenched and finished for a hamon. Blades are 4.5inches each. Hirazukuri pattern, yoroi-toshi type spine.

#1 (Beaut) has black G-10 stacked and carved bolsters with a MOP inlay, very unusual stabilised Mango burl (Yup you got it, Mango)

#2 (Beast) has olive-green canvas Micarta handles with a Del Raso style 2-tone finish for a pseudo-bolster look. Heavily contoured as above, but with plenty of traction grooves for a super-sure grip. Pins are black linen Micarta. Any suggestions fo further work on the handle would be appreciated.

Thanks for the look. Jason.
