I made this one for fun. Damascus, musk ox horn, african blackwood and white spacer.


Sorry for the crappy pic, finally found my camera, and will upload nice pics later.
What do you guys think?

Love the handle. Musk ox horn. Great something else expensive to add to my list of wants.
Have you tested it on a garlic clove or chives.

Interesting concept. I could see buying a mini model of a knife as well as the bigger version just for fun! Very nice.

Is this a solid musk horn?

Looks interesting. People use it on western handles, so why not use it on wa.

HAHAHA!!! I was hoping it would be taken for the novelty that it is. I had thought about making a bunch of these, as they are just fun to do. I have a few more small pieces of scraps that i will whip a few more up and run a giveaway. I swear, try it...It is the most fun you can have with scrap materials. Maybe i can get the next one big enough to be a necker...we shall see. I have a little bit of the musk ox scraps left, and a few ivory scraps also.
I do want to say...it is fully forged to shape, heat treated and sharp as hell!

Thanks for looking guys :D
Mike

There is a knife maker I always see at the shows who makes minis and for him they sell like crazy.

I need to see a picture of this thing next to a full size gyuto.

Is the blade 2.5" long or the whole thing?

Looks very well done. I may need one of these...

I want a whole set (petty, gyuto, cleaver) with matching handles in a little presentation box from Randy, or else a mini magnetic wall strip.
