    MY first try at a large kitchen slicer
    Ladder pattern Damascus Santoku-ish style knife. Lol
    13.5" overall length with an 8.5" blade
    Ladder pattern Damascus .080" at the spine with a nice distal taper to the tip.
    Handle material is some nice stabilized dyed cast resin maple burl handles from RCI
    One stainless rear pin one mosaic front pin.
    Thanks for looking
    StaySharp

    Looking good Jason. That's lots of steel to remove hey? Great choice on the scale material. At first I wasn't sure if it was wood or synthetic.

    Hey Dan, heck yes it was alot of steel especially grinding post ht like I have been since I got the evenheat. Also it's a very thin ground blade. I was trying to grind out the pair of delamination voids I uncovered while grinding my bevels in. Was no indication of any issue in the surface of the bar but opened up and got pretty thin trying to get rid of them.
    The handle material is both narural and synthetic. It is burl wood with cast resin fronts. (Built in bolsters) first time trying this material and I like it.

    The hybrid wood scales are always interesting I have a few knives in progress using same process and they Look pretty good.

    I do like that plastic color up front, doing similar in maple this week once I figure out the color I want
