The Kitchen Sword - 360mm Sujihiki


Recommended Posts

I've been working on this one for over a year now. Forged and finished from 1084 with Ironwood and Ivory Paper Micarta.

I don't think I'll make something again like this for a long time; for me, it was a pretty challenging piece :)

Beautiful! Forging and grinding a blade of that size is challenging enough... add to that the thinness, and, well, that wasn't easy was it... :)

Holy Hell Don! That thing is long! Beautiful and clean though. I bet keeping that thing straight gave you fits.

Very big, very nice, great Job!

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

Don, I laughed when I saw the title of your post...'Cause I love your chef's knives! You have a unique style, and this is quite something! You are a braver man than I, to atempt something this awsome! ( Just wish I could hold it!!! )
