I couldn't be happier with this one! The hand finished damascus go mai construction blade had such a bold and unique pattern that I wanted to do it justice with an equally unique handle.
The handle is comprised of 32 individual components and asssembled with 2 hidden pins, 6 handle pins, and 2 mounting pins. Each component was individially slotted and fit tothe tang. After rough shaping on the grinder, the final shaping was all done completely by hand from 220 grit right up through 5000 grit for a beautifully polished one peice feel.
If youre looking for a truly one of a kind peice of functional art for your kitchen or for that special chef in your life, than look no further. With proper care this knife will perform for many, many years to come!
