I've been working on this one for the last week. Finished this afternoon. Japanese Nakiri knife. High carbon steel blade, hammered finish. Eucalyptus burl handle scales.
I don't have a competitive bone in my body mate.Baz, please go on forged in fire!
That's the first thing that came to kind and then I went to comment, scrolled down, and saw this! Darn you!looks like a chili pepper.....
That is very clean and beutiful! One question though, if you throw it will it come back to you? Xb^^^ Thanks Dash. UGH!! That PURPLE!! I have seen many resin stabilised woods, some nice, some disgusting. With knives, often less is more. If you make your handle too leary, it takes away from the blade. Especially a Damascus blade. You must go easy on bling.
Just finished. Friction folder evolution. My own design, using the same angles in my makers stamp, translated to all parts of the knife. This one is a prototype. There are a couple of angles I am going to change ever so slightly to the order of perfection, plus I am going to taper the thickness of the thumb lever for a perfect fit. That being said, I love this knife and I am seriously thinking of keeping it instead of selling it.
