Yeah, you would do well to snag as much of that as you can. It’s probably not for everyone, but I can’t help but suddenly want a set of New vaquero grips made out of that stuff.

i actually did make some blackhawk grips from something very similar years ago. they were a gift for my pop a while back. he is a revolver man, and has just about a dozen Ruger wheel guns.

thanks much. many have asked, so i will be making a standard model very similar to this one. i will be using 1/8" W2 tool steel with this finish and very similar handle materials. so there will be more of these coming soon. thanks for all the suggestions. i am actually working on more santoku designs and paring knives.

i am doing a paring knife companion to the chef knife since i had just the right amount of steel left for the job. here it is rough ground and headed to heat treat. i should have more pics of it when it is all cleaned up and etched. i am doing the same etch and handle material as the big chef knife.

here is the handle for the parer that mates with the chef knife. i took it 1000grit and finishing with several coats of boiled linseed oil. it is stabilized maple, but i like to double up on the finish. it just gives it a nice, usable finish. if you use something like poly or similar, it is so easy to scratch or damage that super shiny finish. i reserve that for show pieces. i want my knives to be used and enjoyed. my pop has a knife that i made over a decade ago and it still looks new. i hate shiny finishes, anyway. i took all the chrome off my old dyna and had it bead blasted so i could acid etch it. i just dislike those shiny finishes on almost anything. it might be a character flaw.

The set arrived today and I'm blown away! works of art and sharp as can be! Fit and feel are awesome! This set is going to be a Christmas gift and I can't wait to present them!

FYI, the color of these knives is not blue as shown on my screen....not sure what you see. They are a light gray/silver and look incredible!

thanks so much. yeah, my camera skills are not the best. i have a nice set going at the moment for a great customer. these will most likely get photographed professionally if they come out half as good as they look so far. i did a similar set years ago for a family member and they love the shape of them. so, i decided to make a batch of these again.

ask and ye shall receive. i didn't like the look of the hamon on these, i am still learning that particular set of skills. it was just way too light. i think i may change the clay i am using. anyway, no big deal. we just gave it the old signature patterned etch. they came out great. next step is fitting the handles.
