Hello All,

 

I´d like to show you one of my modest standard models I build now and then.

This one was a customer´s order.

 

Blade is 1%C with some tungsten ( german steel# 1.2519, similar to blue paper steel)

Slabs desert ironwood

blade and handle are both around 3 1/3''

 

Hope you are all fine.

 

Mat

Matt - the blade is great for a using knife, and the wood is truly beautiful. How did you finish the wood (if you don't mind)?

Thanks for your comments!

 

I took the slabs up to 1000 grit, then oiled it and used the normal cotton polishing wheel with standard polishing wax.

No magic involved :)
