    [​IMG]have finished this one recently , happy to say it is staying down under . The Damascus billet was done at Randy's last year over the gathering , it is Handforged from a twist pattern . It is Asymmetric ground for a right handed user with forged distal taper . It starts around 3.8mm at the tip tapering to 1mm near the tip . 230mm at the edge
    Handle is d shaped ancient bog oak , walrus Ivory ferule , mammoth tooth and nickel spacers . I am quite happy with the way it cuts and it turned out .
    Let me know what you think

  9. Mert is it a 240? And what is the heel height?

    Looks great by the way, love the twist "pattern". The bog oak and mammoth tooth compliment each other nicely too.
