I finally had a few minutes out in the garage and got some progress on my petty. I have the handle sanded to 1000 grit so far and the blade to 600. this is a test blade for me to use in my kitchen, so i doubt i will take the blade higher than 1000 grit. I made this as a beat up knife for me to see what i can do with it. I plan to abuse the hell out of it.
Handle is 130mm my first stick wa handle.
Blade is 143mm with a 130mm edge
height is 31mm
Spine is 2mm at heel 1.2 mm half way down and .5mm one inch from the tip. 2mm behind the edge is .012 so i may need to refine the grind a touch to thin it just a little bit....use will tell.
This is partially ground, hope that helps explain the girth at the spine. I will get better pictures tonight after i buff the handle.
Sorry for the crappy pics....Finally fixed my camera, but it needs to charge for a while
Comments, critiques, any thing short of throwing food is welcome
Thanks for looking
