FINALLY - the 1st complete nakiri is done!
Gerald your produce should be crapping themselves right about now for what's on the way.
The blade is 180mm made from O-1 hardened to Rc61 with the use of cyro. The handle is western style full (tapered) tang using dyed Oregon maple burl for the scales and African blackwood for the bolsters (wood from Burl Source) along with G-10 liners and copper pins.
This came out so nice and I'm thrilled with it. I'm thinking that I need to score me some damascus for this pattern, it'd show off well I think.
Well her she is....
