    New Petties in the works.

    This is an idea that has been in the works for a while now. I am doing some petties in the 130-210 range. Have a few that will be ready by the weekend, and will be available on my website.

    Here is the one i did for the Bladeforums christmas KITH. The ones i have upcoming will have a few in mono steel and also a few in damascus

    Thanks for looking
    Mike

    Nice work Mike.

    IMHO, just a perfect profile for a petty in those lengths...

    Thanks! I have a few in mono steel, a few in damascus, and maybe a really thick one in a san mai...Still working the thoughts on that one, as the san mai is pretty thick(1/4" i think). I have one of these in my kitchen i have been using everyday for almost a year...takes a wicked edge and cuts forever.
