    Nakiri in RWL34 & G10

    A little of bit of leatherwork seen this Nakiri that i have been working on finished up this afternoon

    The 8 1/4" blade is 2mm RWL34 @ 62rc and 2" high from heel to spine.
    The black G10 handle is 5" long backed with red spacers and 416ss scalloped bolsters.
    spine and choil also rounded for comfort

    This was the first time working a G10 handle for a few years and have a renewed appreciation for them, i think i need to play with more G10 and micarta again

    Knife looks the goods!

    But, were you a plumber in your pre knife making life?
    From my experience plumbers are the most comfortable jumping between imperial and metric...

    thanks Elof

    i think i'm still resisting metric just a little and most knife making stuff seems to be in imperial, one day i'll get with the program

    Very nicely done Mark

    I really like the contouring of the handle.
    Cheers

    Beautiful work!

    I don't get this latest trend of making leather sheaths for kitchen knives though. I remember when makers would get into making kitchen knives just because they hated leatherwork ;-)
