    My 1st MS Knife

    This is my very first knife made by an ABS Master Smith.
    The knife was made for me by Aaron Wilburn who became a Master Smith this year.
    Here are some quick photos. The knife looks way better in person.
    Tonight I will be cutting everything I can get my hands on with this.

    If it looks better in person than it must look like excalibur because it looks great to me. Any details about blade length, handle material, etc?

    Nice knife! Profile is like a fatter konosuke. How's it cut? What's the steel? Can we get an overhead shot of the handle?

    Congrats! He does nice work. I think Salty has one of his too.

    Aaron told me what the steels are and I promptly forgot. The handle material is some of the stabilized Bog Oak.
    I haven't cut anything with it yet, but that will change in about an hour or so.

    The knife is leaning a bit in the photo so the handle looks off a bit but it's not.

    Can you feel the contrast on the pattern? It's amazing. Love the maker's mark too.
