Here’s all the knives I finished up for my Christmas orders. (I have a lot of dead box elder trees in the forest by my house. They all have lots of red in them.) S35vn with box elder burl and box elder branch. I tried a convex grind on this one and just couldn’t get the grinder scratches out of the middle portion. I ended up acid etching it because the Center had scratches but the outer edges were polished. The etch kind of helped blend it together. W2 chef with a pinecone handle. I did the hamon with Uni-bond 33 from sounding stone. So if you’re in Winnipeg it’s very easy to get. https://flic.kr/p/2knNr9a W2 pairing knife with box elder burl. Acid etched with a nail polish splatter. 1095 slicer with bocote and a box elder branch separating the bocote pieces. This hamon was done with satanite. Happy new year everyone!
