So my quest for a rustic laser ended up in my shop. I took a 10" Forgecraft that I'd already thinned to be laserish but just didn't use. It had a hint of a bird's beak on the tip from my inexperience at deep thinning. I've been intrigued by bunkas lately, and my kid wanted an 8" knife, preferably light and rustic, to use in her new apartment. Three hours later, and one trashed hack saw blade, here's where I landed. Selected about 40 degrees for the angle on the tip. Filed and sanded the wood-to-metal on the handle. Scorched the oak, and then while the handle was still warm smothered it in board wax. Sharpened to JNS synthetic 6000 grit. It drops thru tomatoes of it's own weight and passes the three finger test every mm of the edge. Fun project.
