Here's a knife just completed for a good customer.
He chose a San Mai blade, which I made from 416 stainless with a 1095 core.
416 satin guard.
And just a really sweet piece of African Blackwood for the handle. I find the Blackwood with the varying tones of brown striations to be of much higher quality and aesthetic value than all black Blackwood. (It's also harder to come by!)
I hope ya'll enjoy:
