The second piece I have to make before I go to Japan is for the Penland School of Crafts annual benefit auction. Leaving the Core Fellowship program I was asked to donate a piece, so I decided to make another cleaver. You can see that it is almost complete. All that is left to do is the engraving on the fine silver inlay and a final sharpening. I need to finish it in the next two weeks, so I will be posting finished photos soon!
