Here is one thats long overdue. but finally finished. The blade was sent to me by Chef. and I modified and added the handle. Made the saya and its finally done..
Handle is made from one of the finest pieces of rosewood I have ever had. Yea. I know I say that about many pieces of wood. But this really is one of if not the very best block of rosewood burl on the planet!!! I paired it with Meteorite damascus butt cap. Forged from a space rock and high carbon steel. With a brass front cap.
The Saya is African Black wood. Its a friction fit...
The laser work was outsourced. But the idea behind the design and layout was THOR.
I dont know alot about the blade. Aside from its sharp!! It drew blood a couple times as I worked on it..
Anyways. I hope that the Chef loves it and uses it often!
God Bless and Merry Christmas.
