Death in the night and mango boning knife


Recommended Posts

The darkest blade I've ever made, death in the night. Forged 80CrV2 finished in Dura-Bake enamel, black G10 scales with mosaic and copper pins.

"Mango knife"
This customer had a favorite knife with a very specific shape that he used to prepare fruit, I replicated the blade with superior steel and updated handle shape.
15N20 blade with copper, buffalo horn, and Brazillian bloodwood.

Both are great Theo.  Nice clean work.  That Death in the Night has me though. (which is not a surprise given what I make).  I loooove that blade shape; that shallow recurve with the slight harpoon clip.  Good work man

Nice looking blades. I like the handle around the bolster of the Mango knife. It shape is a little like a knuckle bone, or squashed in oval. Very subtle, very neat. 

Good work, and thanks for sharing.
