150mm RWL34 Petty with Saya

Discussion in 'Tristone Bladesmithing' started by Chadd Smith, Apr 27, 2016.

  1. G'day all,

    Slowly getting more and more shop time in now the renovations are starting to wind down a bit. The following blade is one of the latest I have made, and perhaps one of my favourite small knives I have done.

    150mm RWL34 Petty at 63HRC.
    35mm tall at the heel, sporting a mirror polish.
    The spine and choil are also mirror polished and rounded for maximum comfort.

    The handle is octagonal black buffalo horn, Nickle Silver and Ringed Gidgee.
    The Saya is a felt lined Ringed Gidgee which is also friction fit. of a two piece construction.

    This little blade is very thing and convex ground, however enough meat has been left at the spine to provide rigidity. I would have to say it feels like the perfect companion petty in the kitchen.

    I will be making a number of full sized blades, and petty's in this design, or near to with minor adjustments in materials and ratios.

    Regards,

    Chadd

  5. Yap, pretty awesome package. The only real downside is that it doesn't belong to me

  6. Thanks Mert! Always good to have your input :)

    Thanks Alex, this little blade is a great little knife.

    Thanks brother, after the heat treat and geometry is sorted out, the rest is just aesthetics :D

    Downside is I am not allowed to keep it :( Id be happy to make another one, I will be doing a few for the Sydney knife Show anyway. Maybe some k-tips, maybe some damasteel versions.

    Thanks for all of your comments gents
