    THOR Cleaver rehandle.

    Here is one thats long overdue. but finally finished. The blade was sent to me by Chef. and I modified and added the handle. Made the saya and its finally done..

    Handle is made from one of the finest pieces of rosewood I have ever had. Yea. I know I say that about many pieces of wood. But this really is one of if not the very best block of rosewood burl on the planet!!! I paired it with Meteorite damascus butt cap. Forged from a space rock and high carbon steel. With a brass front cap.

    The Saya is African Black wood. Its a friction fit...

    The laser work was outsourced. But the idea behind the design and layout was THOR.

    I dont know alot about the blade. Aside from its sharp!! It drew blood a couple times as I worked on it..


    Anyways. I hope that the Chef loves it and uses it often!
    God Bless and Merry Christmas.

    Amazing work. That saya and handle combo is deadly. The pin inlay on the handle is a stellar addition.

    Who's the maker? Is it a semi-stainless knife I take it? I ask because of the three dots with the kanji.

    Bad arse knife and definitely one of the finest handles I've seen. Great work Randy and congrats Chef!
