    This was an old plastic handled salmon slicer. I was able to grind off the fibrox handle and work with the tiny hook tang.

    Single piece roasted maple burl octagon wa. Two piece saya.

    LOL, I had that knife for years, gave it to mom. Kinda hard to sharpen as its so flexible but a steel really woke it up. Nice woodwork Chris.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Massive cimiter conversion

    Thanks! I do enjoy bringing new life to old or forgotten tools. Not everything has to be a $500 gyuto with super exotic burls...(not that I don't enjoy that, too!)

    This is a massive cimiter conversion. Handle is 6.75", and the blade is now a hair over 13". Bottom block was picked out of a clearance bin for thirty cents!!!! The light weight let me make the handle long and massive.
