    I had done a similar project to convert from full tang to hidden tang with removing the bolster , I will not do it again I hope your sous will appreciate it

    She really likes it. I knew she liked Kiritsuke tips and her favorite knife that I have brought through the kitchen has been a Devin Thomas ITK so I based the profile off of that. Don't read too much into the geometry from the choil shot, its based on Rader's work. It is really fun to see it get worked hard and perorm well... I am going to force a patina on it tomorrow morning at work.



    In case anybody is impressed; here are reminders of where the bar is actually set for a project like this.

    That's pretty awesome.
