    Another kitchen chopper, this one was also made for a gift. Antique sawmill blade steel, ivory piano key, lacewood, ebony, g10. The box was made from a shipping pallet

    Very nice! I am looking forward to doing my first kitchen knife... Not confident enough yet to tackle such a large amount of flat real estate, but soon!

    Very nice! This is a great looking knife.

    I would probably stain the box light brown color to match the knife handle...

    That's a beauty Mark. Nice work on the faceting. Is that 1084 with a mild etch?

    Thanks everyone!

    Roman, I agree. originally the box was supposed to be left the rough grey wood from the pallet, but last minute I flipped everything and put the milled faces on the outside.

    It's an old sawmill blade Dan, I had 2 of them so I use a piece here and there in between buying steel. But it is etched in ferric chloride after 800 grit hand sanding, then I buff it length wise with extra fine steel wool. I've been doing that with most of my knives lately, I like the look

    bobbybirds, just give it a go! The only thing different with this and any other flat grind is you just keep going til you reach the top. sorta. haha

    Very nice knife. I got to try the steel wool, I really like that look.
