Here are a pair of gyuto's forged tang to tang from a single bar. There was really no specific point of doing this, but it was fun.

Here is one that I finished recently that was a commission from a very good friend to be given as a gift. I usually do metal bolsters but wanted to try one without and this seemed like as good a time as any.

I have yet to measure the dimensions or weight the knife.

Thanks for looking,

That ferry flip is beautiful. Very organic looking. The handle is not to shabby either.

01-21-2014, 04:00 PM
This is your prettiest damascus yet. Beautiful total package J.

01-22-2014, 11:51 AM
That choil shot looks sick, in a good way. :knife:

01-22-2014, 12:20 PM
Sick damascus blade. Love the profile!

How much do these go for if you don't mind me asking?

01-22-2014, 01:30 PM
Thanks for the kind words! I got a new bandsaw I need to put together to do the ferry flip. I cut this billet at a friends shop. I was intimidated by the process but since it came out well, I have a bunch of new idea's.

My first start to finish straight razor including honing it myself.

Beautiful razor!

01-27-2014, 05:00 PM
Cool!! How did it shave?!

Cool!! How did it shave?!

It shaved well considering it was my first straight shave in a few months. I went back to double edge for a bit but switched back now.

01-27-2014, 05:44 PM
that is a nice razor thats for sure

sorry to be off topic a little bit but what should I get for a beginner safety double razor first time is it that hard really tired of shelling out the money for blades

01-27-2014, 06:39 PM
In my opinion safety shaving is dead simple and cheap. My most expensive razor was a whopping 8 bucks on ebay, cheapest 3 dollars at an antique store. I buy ten blades for $1.82 at walmart. I don't ever remember cutting myself either. I cannot imaging paying the prices for the current razor heads for the mach 3 or whatever. They get all clogged up with all the strips, blades and wire guards, you get a better shave with a safety in my opinion.

That being said, straight shaving is a whole other ball of wax and takes some time and practice to get all aspects required, such as shaving, lathering, stropping, honing and restoring old beat up razors but it is enjoyable.

01-27-2014, 09:05 PM
I forgot to clarify, the razor on page one needed to be sent out for honing, this razor did not need any outside help to shave well.
