Last week we finished a monster of a custom slicing knife. This one is 17 inches overall with a 12 inch blade and a 5 inch handle. The customer brought in a special piece of Texas Mesquite wood that ended up looking much better than I originally anticipated. This handmade slicing knife is done in 1095 w/ handmade mosaic pins. The grip is custom fit to the user’s hand. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a better photo of it before it left, so I I’m stuck with this bad iPhone photo. Ah well.
