9 3/4" Mosaic Damascus chef's knife. 2 1/4" @ the heel, cryogenically treated between temper Cycles , stabilized Maple Burl handle with a sheep horn spacer , the steel is 1084 & 15 n 20 forged into a mosaic Damascus pattern.
it is a stunning pattern ! one of the most bold I've made, a lot of skill and steel went into making this pattern.
what many people don't realize is how much steel ends up on the shop floor to get a pattern like this. the Billet I started out with was 15 lb and I ended up with two blades out of it.
I think it was worth the effort. what about you?
