    This is 4.75" in the TP4c trailing point style. Shaped like a boning knife, but with a thinner more slicy blade than a conventional boning knife. Made from AEB-L 0.094" and some sweet stabilized green maple burl from Don Stevenson.

    The vulcanized fibre liners are black and white for contrast. The spine jimping is done with a 20lpi checkering file on a slight thumbrise which makes this feel incredibly attached to the hand in a firm grip. I call it the "thumb laser."

    The central mosaic pin was homemade from tube and rods sourced from the local hobby store.

    I'll be posting more on making the pins later in the tutorial section.

    The smooth lines along the belly come from the horizontal grinder with a 1" rubber contact wheel. I changed over to a 1/2" rubber wheel to get the tighter curve near the ricasso. Rounding was done on the 1/2" rubber wheel so no sharpness on the forefinger.

    Bonus birthday shot. Fresh from the oven after a relaxing 1060°C soak.
