    Here is the boning knife. Handle is a little big, but somehow I think it works better.

    Thoughts?

    Next up i'm going to either try and make my own hidden tang handle or do scales for the first time.

    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..

    Ha - No choice - I bought a few just to practice on. I'm with ya though. Not sure what to use it for.

    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.
