Every single knife I have made since 1986 have seen the touch of a grinder. This time I decided to make a knife sans power tools. (The pin hole was drilled with a power drill.) It was an interesting and very enjoyable exercise.
The handle is wrought iron with a filed finish on the back and spine. The inlaid cartouche is sterling silver, with the word "Furuki" cut in Kanji.
The handle was patinated and sealed with urushi lacquer. The blade is 52100 with a satin finish.

Sleek was the first word to come to mind... the second was stark... beautiful shape, there is something about the single long curve surrounded by right angles that really works for me.
