    It's been a minute, but I still get down!

    Last couple of months worth of projects.

    We got a wa converted Opinel parer, a little parer I made of 52100, a couple fish spats, an ITK bread rehandle with saya and some cheese knives of Honduran rosewood.

    Thanks DaveB! It's actually clear green acrylic. That was a project in which I used a bunch of random stuff around the shop.

    Fun and inexpensive project

    I found this vintage Japanese stamped chefs knife at a flea market. I converted the partial tang western to a wa with a simple ho and horn handle. The saya is a two piece magnolia. I refinished the blade as well.

    This is the lightest knife I've ever used and is a tomato slicing machine. I use it for an heirloom carpaccio dish. All in was less than $10.

    Awesome stuff.

    The dark wood fish spat is my favorite.

    Great to see you posting again No Chop. Your knowledge and voice have been missed. The forum definitely has a softer tone these days. I still drop bombs now and then, call BS. I think the BS levels have definitely increased. Everyone is still and expert so that's still the same.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Thanks everyone!

    Here is a heavy Itinomonn cleaver wearing stabilized birdseye maple. It's a beast! Largest saya I've ever made.
