Hey guys, Its been to long for me. Having not made a kitchen knife for a while. Im CRAVING the thrill of it. But I had to finish a long over due order first. This blade is some of Jr's Twist pattern damascus. I ground and heat treated it a few months back and its been sitting here with a few other blades waiting for me.
Beings no one opted for the gar skin scales on the folders. I used a set on this blade. I gota say its amazing stuff and made a great handle. The skin is very hard. and has nice texture which allows for finish work to be done without removing that texture and color from stabilizing. It polished up beautiful!
OAL 10.5" with a 6" blade.
Black wood and Gar handles
Mosaic pins and filework.
Leather boot sheath with stingray skin inlay
Thanks for looking and I hope to have something more kitchen related to show in the very near future.
