    This was for me by a fellow forum member; greasedbullet.

    He's been making some interesting stuff; hopefully he'll share a pic or two....

    Bevels on the wrong side of that necker :nunchucks: , but it does look pretty cool, very ninja! I am still waiting on two blades from Peter's Heat Treating before I can update my WIP thread.

    Due to the new subforum rules, I won't post pics of the neck knife, as it's not kitchen knife related...sorry.

    Thanks for the new subforum, guys!

    No Chop is left handed so I made it lefty friendly. Thanks for the compliments.

    This is why I will not be sharing pics for the time being. I have been told not to. I will be sharing in the future I promise. This is probably going to be my new favorite subforum.

    :thumbsup: Thread, NO ChoP!
    :thumbsup: Subforum
    :thumbsup: Work!

    I realize pictured knife doesn't get much love on this forum but here goes anyway, my (first) contribution to the thread. I just re-handled the 270 suji. Cocobolo, Yellow spacer, Alum rivets. I'm usually a fan of simpler handles, but I tried keeping it somewhat playful on this one.

    Nice, andre s. What is the knife?

    Here is my 8" Forgie with:

    African Blackwood scales
    Blue fiber spacers
    1/8" daisy mosaic pins in brass/ nickel

    added a little octo-shape this time....

    Got five more done...

    Zebrawood
    Wenge
    Padauk

    sayawork.jpg

    I found that Zebrawood really stinks like zebra dung!

    And, I probably wont work with Padauk again, as I found it splinters way too easily. I had to sand down the edges far more than I intended; very fragile wood.

    I was surprised at how dark the wenge turned out as well....

    Looking good, my man! Zebrawood is nice to work, besides the sorta funky smell. I just used some oak, and it reminded me of an old workshop in the best possible way.

    So, here is a John Pimble edition Forgie/ Hickory style 10" chef...

    Ziricote scales, padauk and white fiber spacers, mosaic pins

    I turned the 1/2 tang into a stick tang.

    Those are particularly nice.
    Sweet complement to the handle! With such rich grain, it's nice to see the whole "motif" kept simple.
    good stuff
