The damascus pattern of this wa-petty is described as tamamoku, or “birds eye wood pattern”. The core steel is VG-10. The heat treatment of the VG10 was done right on this blade, as I have not encountered any chipping.
Overall length is 294mm (11.6”). The blade measures 160mm, with an edge of 149mm. It is 33mm high at the heel. Spine measurements are 2.80mm at the heel, 2.10 mm midway to the tip and 0.70mm at 1mm from the tip. Weight is 107g.
Mike Henry made and installed the handle of red Mallee burl with ebony ferrule and endcap.
