    Some really cool knives here guys.

    This is custom knife I made for a friend a while ago. He wanted something a bit elvish. I decide to experiment a bit with the handle construction. The poplar burl is really elvish to me.
    The handle is purple heart, poplar burl and african blackwood. Steel is the Suminagshi cladding with white #2. The blade profile was also a first. It has little belly like a Gyuto but the spine drops down way further back on the blade than normal on a japanese blade.

    It still looks a bit dirty cause it was only just finished.

    There is actually green tones in the poplar that you can't see is this pic. Also I know very little about elves. I was trying to do a curvy handle with a kind of leaf shaped blade to make it "elvish"

    two new knives

    This knife is 8 1/4" long with a 4 inch handle and weighs 3.6 ounces. The handle is made from hard maple. I used high gloss polyurethane to finish the handle.


    This knife is 8 1/4" long with a 4 inch handle and weighs 3.2 ounces. The handle is canary wood. I used high gloss polyurethane to finish the handle.

    Both blades, 4 1/4" long, 4" cutting edge, are 0.45" thick at the spine and 0.003" thick at the edge. 1.2519 high carbon tool steel (C:1,15%/Mn:0,4%/W:1,4%/Cr:1,3%/V:0,25%) hardened and tempered to a final hardness of Rc64-65, The edge was then ground to 8 degrees per side then hand worked to razor sharpness. I purchased the steel from these folks https://www.schmiedeglut.de/tungsten-steel-knifesteel_2.
