    After my last personal knife went to a good friend in Germany i needed a new knife for myself.
    With a leftover chunk of 200 layer damascus and a block of Koa I made myself a new one.

    A 16 cm blade and overall length of 29 cm.
    Damascus of O2 and 75ni8.





    There are some raindrops on the knife.

    Hope you like it!

    Yet another reason you don't throw leftovers out! Very nice!!!

    I was able to see and hold one of your less fancy Taurus models at Blade; as good as the pictures and better.

    Normally not a fan of leftovers BUT that looks delicious (couldn't help myself)
    If you want to make yourself yet another knife, send that one to me - I'll make sure it has a fine home :D

    I can see why you might have a problem hanging on to personal knives like that. Guys are probably only too happy to buy it off your belt.
