Just finished this breadknife. Its about my fourth knife overall.
It is 1/16" A2 at 60 RC hardness. The handle is macasar ebony with mosaic pins. The handle looks much nicer than the photos.

Nice serrations filework! Evenness and symmetry on a pattern like that is not easy! For future reference, note the position of the mosaic pins and line up their pattern, but lookin' good!

Thanks Tiktock, I noticed the mosaic patterns being off too (once it had set). This was my first crack at these type of pins. Once the epoxy was mixed I was just glad to get everything fit into place. Next time...

Very nice work Richard. Those serrations do look good. You are very patient.

Thanks guys, yes I'm very happy with it. Those serrations were quite tedious, but with no belt grinder yet I am doing everything by hand anyway. Now I'm REALLY hooked. I've got a Knut Lie grinder on the way...
