    Like the Wa boning knife. My favorite profile for a robust boner.

    I've a slicer and I just can't find anything it's well suited for. Thinned and rehandled it still sucks as a slicer. I would not put any work into another.

    Older and wider..

    I'm torn. I'm not sure the larger 8' slicer goes with a wa handle.
    I have not glued it down yet.

    The couple Yo artifex I cut down we’re stuid easy. You may want to file/sand the finish after.

    What do you use on the hickory handles? BLO or Tung oil?
