This a 10inch stainless Sab that Son sent to me. I've got a handful of beauties I'm restoring for him. This is the 1st one I got around to, and I can't think of a more deserving guy. The handle is Cocobolo and this was my first attempt with loveless bolts. They were a lot harder to install and the middle one is all Wabi-Sabi (if u know what I mean) Still a purty knife. I love me some Sab.

This is one of those blanks from Jantz. It's an 8inch Damascus pattern VG10. I did this one as a birthday gift for my best friend. The handle is spalted sycamore.

This is a 150mm Shig petty I bought from Turbochef. I love it, especially with the new handle. Such a great cutter. What a great deal! 100$ from Nick! Thanks again, my new favorite knife!

Lastly, a little Henckel paring knife I did for the wife. This one is Norfolk pine. Curvy lady handle.

What was your impression of the Jantz blade? I'm considering it for an upcoming project.

They aren't too bad. I did a smaller utility knife for my MIL around XMas time that came out good too. I mean, it's VG10. A pretty decent steel for people like my friend or MIL, but not so much for me.
You can find a better blade (with a cheap handle you'd have to remove) for the same price, believe me-I've shopped around. For the home/occasional cook, they make excellent gifts.
