    It is quite magical... One of my favorite foraging spots as well. I was walking along a trail I have dozens of times, and decided to take a peak of trail (take a piss, lol) and noticed what looked like a knife handle sticking out of the ground. A little tug like the sword in the stone, and behold... A dirty, old chefs kife, with a hill-billy handle. Pitting isn't that bad considering it was stuck in the dirt for god knows how long. It's become a fun project.


    Mike, that deba looks like it will be a interesting project. What are your plans for it.

    This thread is quickly becoming increasingly awesome!

    Mike, I you can salvage that piece of wood from the handle, you should use it in the new one.

    The Deba came out nice I couldn't salvage the handle though. I'll get a pic this weekend. However this old Ekco Forge 8" slicer showed up and is a prime candidate for a conversion.

    The choil is ground and I clipped the tip a little like a suj then got it ready for a working edge

    Interesting because the knife that sees the most work is a ODC 1095 custom that is starting to form a great patina. A little more modern with a CF handle but really a joy to use and sharpen.
