Yup, Buckeye from Burl Source. The tang on that knife is gonna give me nightmares for years.

I had done a similar project to convert from full tang to hidden tang with removing the bolster , I will not do it again :) I hope your sous will appreciate it

She really likes it. I knew she liked Kiritsuke tips and her favorite knife that I have brought through the kitchen has been a Devin Thomas ITK so I based the profile off of that. Don't read too much into the geometry from the choil shot, its based on Rader's work. It is really fun to see it get worked hard and perorm well... I am going to force a patina on it tomorrow morning at work.



In case anybody is impressed; here are reminders of where the bar is actually set for a project like this.

The word 'overqualified' comes to mind. :clown:

But if you are ok with a 50% pay cut, a commute half way across the country, and doing inventory every Sunday the job is yours. If you hang on for a year I'll even whip up a Forgecraft for you....

Ha! Inventory every Sunday, eh? It sounds like her new knife is well deserved!

Yeah Daveb, same Sous. She already has a pretty big fan club. I'll let her know you're on board. :doublethumbsup:

I put on three rounds of forced mustard patina today. Quick cell phone pic before I left.
