I love it. I think this is a great shape for home use. Short deep blade for limited board or counter spacer. Great for family size quantities of slicing and dicing,and scooping. This one is gorgeous , like all your other knives . If it was for sale, I'd buy it. If one like it was going to become available , I'd order it. Anything else?

Dude! You get some of the craziest awesome handle materials I've ever seen. I really like the idea of a short, but still tall enough blade.
Beautiful craftsmanship on the handle, but personally, I'm not a fan of handles that drop downward at the end. I like either a flat or slight upward angle to my handles. The drop at the end puts my wrist at a weird angle.

Thanks Justin. Have you tried one of my westerns?

Yes, a gyuto: one from the meteorite damascus: AN AMAZING BLADE!
The handle was the best I've used of a style that I don't like. That's not to say that it's bad, infact I'm sure that folks who like that style would love it, but it's just not for me. If feels great in the hand, and works very well for the hammer grip or the kind of ergonomics involved in a hunting or non-kitchen utility knife, but it's just not right for me if I'm going to use it for long periods of time in the kitchen.

Thanks for your reply and explanation. Sheds light on why some might prefer Wa over western handles. On a side note. I am a custom knife maker and would be happy to make you or anyone ordering a custom knife.. a straight or wa style handle ;) Thats what I do.

Its a KNIFE LIFE!! :)

...and you're darn good at it. That really is a perdy little knife and it's surprising that there aren't more like it.

One question, how is this handle material behavior when wet?
Does it slip or the opposite? I have heard that horn becomes less slippery when whet.
Thanks

The Walrus ivory is polished up to a smooth like glass finish on this knife. I expect it to be like most ivory when wet. Maybe the owner will chime in here and share there experience with the knife and its characteristic. I am offering this style knife with any handle materials. The Walrus ivory on this one was and is one of a kind. So future knives of this style will have any variety of handle materials from horn, to stag, to burl etc.

Randy, what does the steelzilla refer to? I googled it and found a company with a terrible website calling themselves metal art monsters.

Pete, I call the steel I used to make this beast "Steelzilla" Its a high carbon mix.

B4 I stated exactly what this new steel it is I wanted to get it into a few peoples hands as a kitchen knife. So I can get unbiased reviews of how the steel preforms in the kitchen. I have tested it and feel it makes a great cutting tool.

Next will be a laminated version stainless clad over Steelzilla. ;)

Thanks
Randy
