    WIP:Brisket Slicer (Briskethiki)i

    As some of you know, I spent a day with Hoss in the spring, He was kind enough to let me forge my own damascus and teach me some of the ins and outs of knife making. I've been traveling so much lately that I haven't had much time to work on the knife we started on that day. This was the first week I had time to spend on it and I am almost there. I wasn't happy with the finish I put on the knife before I etched it, so removed it and will start over this weekend. The handle also needs to be cut to length and finished.














    I had much more luck on making the handle after I decided not to use the belt sander.

    I would like to thank Hoss again for an experience of a lifetime.

    Looks awesome! That must have been one hell of an experience!
    How did you make the handle without a beltsander? A table saw?

    I was wondering about the same thing. How do you shape the block into an octagon without a belt sander?

    Wow looks great! A little belly works wonders on a big brisket.

    You guys will have to be patient on that one. Its going to be my little secret until I tackle the wa conversion on my Hiro Shiro. When I do that one, I will post a tutorial with pictures. Its actually very simple and only takes me about 15 minutes to shape the handle. Drilling hole is another story all together. What a pain. I think I need to try a mortising bit next time.

    I look forward to the tutorial!
    Is the mortise on wa handles an oval shape instead of a square/rectangle?

    270 or so. I had a couple of rookie mishaps so it may be short a few millimeters.
