Finished Yakut style knife

Recommended Posts

This is my first attempt at making a Yakut knife, I think it went well. W2 steel with black ash burl. Sharpening to 0 and it is scary sharp.

The edge is so thin it will bend over my fingernail and back to perfectly straight. 

 

There are a number of small aesthetic issues I forgot to address. And One grinder slip I was not able to fix 

 

if you have any critique I would love it hear it. 

Thanks and good evening.

Looks like a darned fine knife to me Conner.   And I wish I could take pictures as good as you.   If it performs, I'd call it good, and get on to the next one.  If not, then add it to the bucket and get on to the next one...

I like it. I'll be making one once I get this surgery behind me.
