    Been working on using up all those little off-cuts and scrap ends. Consequently I've got a couple of mini-cleavers and two other small knives on the go, in amongst some hunters I'm making. I just etched up this one today, Takefu Super Gold 2, and really happy with the way it came out. The spine is file worked and chipped on the leading edge, blade has a grape seed cross section onto the cutting edge and I cut back toward the spine a bit to give some pattern to the upper flanks.

    Seems to have slowed down somewhat since it's initial patina that it took on.

    It has darkened slightly but a long way to go.

    I need to forget about it for several months and hopefully get a surprise I'm looking for.

    Here's the second pocket cleaver, this one with a VG10 core.

    For some reason I have a lot of trouble at knife shows convincing folk that this is one of the handiest little culinary knives they'll ever have. In our own kitchen, the first one wore out after 14yrs, I snapped the blade of the second one when almost finished polishing it, (which prompted me to invent some new words for the dictionary). This is number three. My tribe goes through about 10kg of fruit a week and one son is now calling himself a vego, so I'm sure this knife will get a bit of a hiding over the coming years. Handle is mulga and steel is RWL34.

    Still finding good use for all those small off-cuts that accumulate over the years. I was really happy with this one and will make a template to keep for future reference. It has a (non sharpened) polished false edge for a bit of an accent, mosaic pin in the rump, brushed RWL34 blade at RC=60 and highly figured gidgee handle. If you look carefully you'll see a shallow finger indent underneath, just enough to make it comfortable in hand. I haven't thought yet about what sort of pants it should wear but most likely something simple that can drop inside a pocket.

    A small pocket jobby about the same size as the one pictured above. Polished RWL34 with highly figured red narra handle. Has a non sharpened false edge.
