kitchen knife

Here is a kitchen knife I just finished. The blade is c1060 quenched in brine and is 10 inches long. The handle is purple heart with bloodwood laminated between. The customer had the wood laminated already.The handle is around 5.5 inches long with brass fittings. The display box is not finished yet. There is a deep hammer mark on spine from when i forged the blade, I thought it would come out in the polish,but it was to deep and the blade would be to thin. I offered to make another blade but the customer did not mind. He got a discount, hope you like..

I love this style of knife. That blade is fantastic...
