    I don't usually make much in the summer but it rained last week so in the shop I went.
    Knife was forged from the outer race of a Timken bearing.
    Salt heat treated,lightly etched in acid and then given a mustard patina.
    I am excited to see how the edge hold up, it is SCARY sharp.

    That's the kind of knife I'd love to have. Low-key, simple, but works.

    Very nice Cal. That looks to be about 2-1/2" deep. Won't be banging knuckles on the cutting board.
