Tried to make some changes to my process to be more efficient, but didn't like the result, so reverting to the old ways of doing things, and working on replacements for those knives that went into a practice bin.
This one I managed to do last week. 255mm on the edge, cocobolo handle with a nickel silver spacer and a horn ferrule. 3mm, 2.25, 1.75 (50mm from the tip). Rigid spine, thin midsection and a super thin edge. 210g.
It has been a long time since the order for this one was placed.
stunning, as usual. Good work Marko
Looks great! That block of wood looks familiar.
Wow very sweet.
Chewie's the man.
Some new work since vacation. A slow start, but have several knives in works.
