    A new project, a set with meteorite and ivory

    One of the forum members has commissioned a 3 piece set of paring knife, petty and gyuto in a patterned meteorite damascus.
    He has given me permission to do a WIP as well.
    Enjoy the ride!
    The meteorite.

    Too cool. Is that a Gibeon meteorite and is it big enough to maybe get some thin slices out of the center to use as buttcap material?

    No it's Campo de Cielo, haven't had any Gibeon for awhile, it's gotten a bit pricey. Of course none of this stuff is cheap.
