    I’m finally finished with this paring/petty knife. The design is inspired by some types of Kiridashi.

    But in contrast to a Kiridashi both sides of the blade have a full flat grind.

    The steel is stainless Damasteel in the ”Heimskringla” pattern with a mammoth tooth handle.

    Trying to win the polish of the year award? What does the mammoth tooth feel like? Stoney, woodey, synthetic?

    Well it I think it feels something like a mix of wood and stone maybe... :)

    It’s hard to pin down exactly, there is also some small ”texture” to the tooth mainly because the buffing process abrades a little different on the different hardnesses of the tooth.
