Recommended Posts

I added some micarta slabs to a knive as a request from a customer and I've decided to make some others like it too.

 

Cable damascus (1085)

Overall lenght: 8" About 3 1/2" cutting edge

7mm thickness, width: 1 1/8"

 

Home made micarta slabs, with a lanyard in leather and matching micarta.

I like the way the cable is done- it really flows.

Thank you :)

 

 

For the previous knives I've used 3/4" diameter cable, but for this one I've used 1 1/4" (you can notice the thicker strands)

 

As you can see on these pictures, the entire piece is welded. The only exception is where the actual strands are showing, as that's the intended look :)

 

Specs for this one are:

 

Cable damascus (1085)

Overall lenght: 6 1/2" - 3" cutting edge

 

Home made micarta slabs (green, brown, black), with a lanyard in leather and matching micarta.

 

I liked the leather texture that much that I've also made a wallet :D
