Hello All

 

Just finished this Big hunter

Total length 11.5 inch, blade 6.25 inch and just over 1.5 inch wide.

3 bar construction;

Back 72 layer twist 1095 & 15N20

Centre 5 Layer

Cutting edge 144 layer O1, 1095 & 15N20

Handle, Stabilised by me, New Zealand Curly red beech burr.

Fittings Shibuichi, this will get, in time a beautifull silver grey patina, I prefer to let the patina happen by it self it does not take that long.

Richard,

 

I find myself returning to that blade. A beautiful pattern that is more than the sum of its parts.

I appreciate how this knife is obviously shaped with loving care.

 

Please bring more work to show!

I like the "looseness " of the damacus...gives it that organic grown look....

I like you makers mark too... Is that new? I don't remember seeing it on your other work... At first I thought why is the cursor on that blade ....but it didn't move....laugh.gif.... It's early ...I guess I'm still on standard time....biggrin.gif ( we just switched to daylight savings time here in the states .... Are we the only ones that do that?

It looks like a river framed between the foot of a mountain and open fields. That is really great.

I have used that mark for a long time now I used it first in my jewellery, it are my stylised initials RvD and then turned around in my opinion it looks better that way. We will be changing soon to winter time over here so you are not the only one, as far as I am conserned the summer is far too short.
