One of the forum members has commissioned a 3 piece set of paring knife, petty and gyuto in a patterned meteorite damascus.
He has given me permission to do a WIP as well.
Enjoy the ride!
The meteorite.

Wow - this is going to be interesting. I'm looking forward to seeing how you smelt that rock.

Too cool. Is that a Gibeon meteorite and is it big enough to maybe get some thin slices out of the center to use as buttcap material?:thumbsup:

No it's Campo de Cielo, haven't had any Gibeon for awhile, it's gotten a bit pricey. Of course none of this stuff is cheap.

Being a geologist, I know that chunk of meteorite was not cheap unless your client found it.

This should be an interesting of set of cutlery

No it wasn't and I have a sister piece of similar size.

this will be a WIP, with fairly regular updates.
In fact I should have some more pics later tonight, if I can get them posted.

Okay, so it wasn't just me. I was looking at bolster/buttcap size slices of Gibeon last night and they seemed like they had gotten REALLY expensive. I hadn't priced them in a couple of years, mind you.

Awesome, Del! I have to admit, I'm in maker mode, and all I kept strain at was your hammer and anvil. Haha.
Can't wait to see how this turns out!
