169 x 48mm (6.7 x 1.9") Integral Damascus chef with spalted tamarind handle. Y-Axis cut Crazy Fiber accent. 

1084/W2 carbon steels. 

I was making some twist damascus for another project and ended up with WAYYY too much steel, so I made two knives out of some of the untwisted barstock. The forged shapes ended up a bit funky, with a lot of material above the bolster, so I decided to go with the shape, and here we are. I was apprehensive about how it would turn out, but I'm pleased with how it all went. 

This knife has a flatter edge profile than it's counterpart, similar to a santoku, but I couldn't quite call it that with how funky the shape was. The raised spine acts as a built in bench scraper, great for moving ingredients around the board without damaging your edge. 

As I was using leftover steel from my stock removal days, I was not able to mix in a high nickel steel. This meant that the two steels don't contrast as much as I would have liked, but it is still visible and a very cool knife. All in all a very unique piece from me.
