Hi everyone.
Here is a collection of some of the projects I have been able to complete during the past month in between family time.

Petty with a blue dyed Maple burl handle, 100mm blade
Small Nakiri with a crosscut Bacote handle, 145mm blade

Thanks, my hamons have been getting better.


Here is another petty complete, this time dressed in cocobolo.....and I forgot to wipe off the excess wd-40 from the blade :facepalm:

And a pretty out there bright flashy handle I finished up a few days ago.....way out of what I normally like but hey it was still fun.

Nice stack of handle material in the background. Are you using epoxy or CA glue?
Oh my handle material and wood collection is just a wee bit excessive. See below just for a pile that I will be stabilizing this weekend.
Liner material to scale is CA glue (Starbond or Stickfast).
Prepped scales to Tang is G-flex epoxy.

Another one finished.
This was supposed to be a Christmas present for my dad...looks like Father's day now.

He has never really liked using my J-knives and has always used Henckles.
So when I asked him what type of chef knife he wanted me to make him his direction was to just have a high tip with plenty of belly and to keep it classy. Something that would still look beautiful in 50 years. I think I nailed it.
BTW months ago someone had a post regarding ergonomic western handles and I posted my drawing for this knife....well here it is finally.

220mm 52100 at 62rc, frame handle with micarta, black walnut, brass.
