Etching the Damasteel blade in 150°F muriatic acid.
Green box elder Burl and greed dyed mammoth tooth bolsters.
My personal knife. 260mm M390 with amboyna Burl and natural box elder Burl bolsters. A pair of delicious home cold smoked sable fillets as well.
This was a custom order. It is sold. Please dm me if you are interested in one.
CPM 20CV 180mm nakiri
I like them! Especially the one with carbon bolster. Must be pita to work with though.
Actually it’s not too bad. Grinds easily. Very durable. But the dust gets everywhere when it’s sanded.
I once did a knife in white g10. and it was not nice. its the white one here. you get lung cancer if you breathe that crap in. (edit: it was also the last one i do in g10)
Very nice. But G10 is not the only Hazzard amongst handle materials we use. Carbon fiber can cause pulmonary fibrosis and cardiac failure. Rosewood family woods such as rosewood, ebony, cocobolo have oils that when volatilized in the dust particles are directly pulmonary toxic. Pick you poison !
That nakiri looks like a mean machine! Of course the handle material choices are great too, nice!
All synthetic fibers that are sharp and that does not degrade in human tissue will cause lung cancer. its just a matter of time/exposure. Of course something else, could, in theory kill you before this happens.
In china they make carbon fiber bike frames. A chinese carbon fiber worker has an average "lifetime" of 3 years. just saying. just dont go swimming in this sh1t.
