KN74 Beta Honesuki in AEB-L and Brown Curly Maple

Right Handed Honesuki

This is Beta, brother to KN74 Alpha shown in a previous post. This 5.5" honesuki has a stabilized brown dyed curly maple handle with 416 stainless pins and a stainless and brass mosaic pin at the centre position. 

This is a right-handed asymmetrical ground blade where the left side is essentially flat and the right side of the blade is beveled. I left the bevel grind at 120 grit to give some contrast in the lines. 



 

I cut the curly maple scales off of a stabilized block from Don at WoodStabilizer.com in British Columbia. I wanted to keep the heartwood to sapwood boundary lines in it. 


















Thanks for stopping by!
