    OK, Plans changed on this blade. after all was said and done. I was not happy with how it preformed. SO. Ill be starting this order over, from scratch. Reforging the damascus and re making this blade as a true single bevel!! Im very happy about this. BUT that leaves me with this blade. Its currently a double bevel and doesnt have very much taper in the blade. SO Im gona head out to the shop and do what I call a design modification. Meaning Im gona remove steel here and there until it become a cutting tool.. :) Then ist gona be AVAILABLE. :D

    More pictures to come..

    Thanks. I just came in from working on this and So far I have not had to modify the blade profile. I have however. Tapered the blade from the heel to the tip. and turned it into a R handed single bevel. This one may work for this custom order after all? Not counting on it quite yet. BUT its looking GOOD and I can already tell. Its gonna cut like a laser!

    Aww. I was looking forward to potentially picking this up as the eventual double bevel! :lol2:

    But if you can salvage it, all the better! That tip is just out of this world gorgeous! I can't stop looking at it!

    The tip will look the same and it will be a BA! single bevel. :)

    Hit me on PM or email and lets talk about handle materials and price. I already spoke with my client and he wants me to start over and adjust a few other things. SO It looks like its gona be available.

    WHOO HOO!! Its to around 3K on the stones currently and is looking amazing if I do say so myself. ;)

    I did make a slight design modification. from original profile to now. I adjusted the tip position, raised it a little from where it was originally.

    I know its gona make it a better cutter overall.

    DANG IT. Knife making can be a cruel and wicked mistress!

    After all was said and done. and the work I did today on this blade. I found a problem and will have to go back to design modification.. lol Long story short. I gota make a few changes. and or scrap this blade and move on with something else.

    What a BUZZ KILL!

    Hey! That's my line!

    Sorry to hear that Randy! What happened?

    REDESIGN!! OK this may be the single sharpest blade I have ever made! Single bevel with Ura makes for a SICK edge. Re design 018 (800x533).jpg Re design 017 (800x533).jpg Re design 012 (800x533).jpg Re design 011 (800x533).jpg Re design 004 (800x533).jpg Re design 003 (800x533).jpg

    Yes its shorter in height then the original. and the OAL is 255mm rather then 270. BUT its gona be a awesome cutter.
    And I didnt have to stick it in the WALL OF SHAME!! :D

    This double forum thing confuses me. I think I commented already, but it's so jaw dropping, it deserves another. You're making me want to sell a kidney Randy.
