First Pics
So normally I would've posted this in the PIF department, since I gave it away yesterday...........
....but I couldn't resist posting in the new thread!

This is crazy Korean knife I got from Son. I got a bunch from him, and will be busy for a while. I rounded the spine and choil and did a couple hot vinegar baths. The handle is tamarind with a red G10 spacer.

Thanks for doing this Dave!

very similar to the one you got on the ebay but, mine were brought back by a marine stationed there in the 70's. They look remarkably alike and some have the same makers marks as the ones on ebay. I guess things don't change much when you have well, nothing. It's just a tool albeit a cool one.

Here are a couple more I PIF'ed for some friends/co-workers. Free of charge, of course. I won't even accept money for materials. http://i1271.photobucket.com/albums/jj640/landon_chris/DSC_0127_zps1bdb355b.jpg (http://s1271.photobucket.com/user/landon_chris/media/DSC_0127_zps1bdb355b.jpg.html)http://i1271.photobucket.com/albums/jj640/landon_chris/DSC_0129_zpsa4b10396.jpg (http://s1271.photobucket.com/user/landon_chris/media/DSC_0129_zpsa4b10396.jpg.html)
An 8inch Wustoff Chef for the guy that recommended me for the job @ the hotel I'm at now. I also did a boner and a bread Wusty too.

An old Henckel paring that my boss(at my old job) had in his basement. It was a gift from his mother from when he graduated culinary school in the early 80's. It was warped and had a really badly broken tip. I was able to correct the warp too.

This is a Messermeister Meridian Elite that Chuckles donated to me. I put some redwood on it. I drew some inspiration from Daniel Omalley's Western shig rehandles. This is the 1st time I've messed around with curves so much. It's not perfect, but I like it. I gave this one away to a recent culinary school grad who was using Cuisinart knives.
Thanks Chuckles!

The Meridian Elite is a solid knife on its own. That's a lucky dude. Nice job!
