I am in the final stages on this Christmas gift. It's an 9" Chef/Utility made from 3/32" AEB-L with stainless, African Blackwood and a stabilized Amboyna burl block. The red vulcanized fibre spacers give it some colour accent. I drilled and tapped the butt and made a keyhole in the tang to take a stainless steel screw and screwed it all together. My first use of West System's G/flex and I have to say I am happy with the product. I certainly learned a few things on this one. Thanks for looking. Dan P.S. Can you see the brushed effect from the scotch-brite belt?
