    Wowsers! I guess your pimped up Victorinoxes has finally gotten some serious competition here, Ĝivind.
    As I said earlier abou the blade alone, this is probably the most spectacular kitchen knife I have seen. The blacksmithing and etching of that damascus is true mastery. Well done Bill.

    Wow, thank you everyone for the praise of the knife. I think it is one of the very best I have done.

    A question if i may, do you have any handy hints for keeping the bolster square and flat for handle fit up.

    I think i would upset it flush with a flat slotted bar, like
    A tennon shoulder befofe finishing. As I have no Mill.
    Also is dragon breath your own development

    Hi Will,

    When I started forging thid blade the steel was in a block roughly six inches long a inch and a half wide and a half to five eights thick, so all I had to do was draw out the blade and tang and leave the bolster area alone. After forging I just ground/filed it to shape no milling at all. One little trick is to leave the sides of the bolster area flat, or surface grind the flat and parallel so that you can clamp a file guide to them and file the shoulders for a perfect handle fit. A tennon jig or Monkey tool would work.

    Yes as far as I know, I am the developer of Dragons breath pattern though not the technique used to get it. I also did another pattern that I call river of fire. Though it is not as dramatic as this one.
