I’ve been wanting to work with Ironwood for quite some time and finally someone ordered a knife with that handle material. I finished this 12.5 inch chef knife for the owners of Gateway Guesthouse, a great B&B here in Austin. This knife was unique in that she asked me to put a tenderizer on the butt of the knife so she could use the end on meat and whatnot. Ironwood is extremely hard and was difficult to work with, but I really like the way the knife turned out.
