Kabuto white 7033


Here is another presentation grade Kabuto. This time in a more subtle appeareance. The light grey silk wraps tipped in bright yellow are still striking and complement the white blank beautifully. The bright nickel hardware fits in this color scheme perfectly. 
I selected a lighter tone maple burl insert and a light amber agate guide. The beautifully finished winding check makes for a smooth transition from cork to blank and looks beautiful. The cigar shape handle is flat at the base and slightly increasing diameter towards the tip for a good grip.
This beauty was built on an order request.
Thanks for looking at my work!

Not another 6wt.

A new special 6wt. graphite project. This time I really wanted to turn a "Burkie style" grip. I think it came out nice. A couple more Kabuto white will follow. Stay close for more!
