52100 Nakiri with a new handle design

    I've been experimenting with many different handle designs since I started making knives. I believe I've finally hit on a style that I am going to explore in depth. This one in particular is a bit of a fusion of octagon/western styles.
    Ironwood/copper/manzanita burl.

    Blade is still rough off the grinder. This blade is a pretty thin convex nakiri, with a thin ghost tip for slicing. It should perform nearly as well as a gyuto for tip slicing. 52100 @ 63.
    196 x 47 mm with distal taper from 2mm to .75.

    I tried something a bit different with the angled grind at the tang to match the handle.

    I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I really like the angled Tang/handle junction.

    Thank you Jim. Probably my best handle yet. I love that manzanita, it's a beautiful wood.
    Funny, we used to burn manzanita burl when we were camping at our cabin as kids. What I wouldn't give for some of those burls!

    Beautiful knife, Mark. I'm not a big fan of the nakiri, but this one is making me want to see if it can change my mind. I'm tempted to get it to see if it can.

    Thank you Rick! You would probably be pleased with the thin tip I think.
    I was tempted to keep it myself but my wife doesn't play well with carbon steels...
     
  8. the handle looks very comfortable, nice looking knife you have there.
