    Sooo! This one belongs to our very own @cheflarge! As you all know, Al's been a HUGE supporter of all of the custom knifemakers in our community. He's always among the first to lend compliments (which are almost invariably exuberant and obviously hearfelt lol), and has never once that I've seen have anything to offer but a kind word. For these reasons and more this knife was an honor for me to make for him.

    So...without further commentary, here's the knife I made for him :D.

    And of course, finished video!!

    Steel: AISI W2 tool steel from Aldo at New Jersey Steel Baron

    Handle: Stabilized (K&G) buckeye burl, with copper liners

    Thank you so much again Al! It really has been a pleasure!

    It's a pretty sweet knife with an attractive hamon. Normally voids and stuff in wood would irritate me, but the grain and colors help the handle integrate the voids well.

    That was a pretty gratuitous [edit: posterior orifice] picture though...
