We’ve had this very strange cut of oak burl laying around for awhile so when Dirk was looking for handle material to put on an inventory knife he selected it. He also chose to put a solid brass liner on the knife. Using any type of metal for a liner adds a number of complications to the build, but it turned out really well. This is a standard chef that is 12″ overall in 440c stainless steel w/ 1.05 carbon content. He also used handmade brass mosaic pins that in the Bob Kramer style. Great knife. We’ve never seen a cut of oak burl like this one before.
