latest of last year


Recommended Posts

Hi to all and a Happy and Healthy new Year 2013!


I managed to get my latest kitchen knife nearly done, before the last year ended. My wife got me out of the workshop early enough to celebrate "Sylvester" and the coming of the New Year with her,

so there is just a pin (2.5mm pure silver) missing and a decent honing of the edge,

the older pics are here:



now it looks like this:

overall 187 gr, the blade is 150mm, the handle 109mm with a thickness of 37mm on the end 23mm wide

it is stabilized antique whale bone which I got from an old friend years ago, the blade was preforged by Perry (Norbert Bahls, who made the Monster-Damast-bloc with Achim Wirtz a couple of years ago):

I did put a spacer of black fibre to it, not just for the looks, but this way it was easier to get the thin blade nearly perfectly into the handle...

since it is a nesmuklike blade, I thought of naming it "whalemuk" B)

Looks like a great way to end the year. That steel is amazing and the over all color match makes the entire knife very appealing nice job and Happy New Year.

That whale bone is gorgeous! Lovely knife....

Kip, Ben, George:

thx guys, I appreciate the feedback!

I had a long time away from the workspace

and it felt good to finish this one,

there are still a number of different blades ready and waiting for mounting,

so I hope to show some more soon...


best regards from Germany
