It was the broken IKEA kitchen knife which we are accustomed to and don’t want to throw away.

And now it’s an unbelieveable piece of fine craftmanship that I would be afraid to use because I might mess it up!

Beautiful.

LOVE IT !
I’m almost done a early 1900’s BIG butcher knife, 19 and a half inches overall. It’s been abused,angle grinder to sharpen, left to rust etc. But it’s now mostly shiney and with a new brass riveted walnut handle..
(camera’s off to repair shop) BUT ! this is much more of a fine piece. Well done ..

Thanks, very cool. I’ve seen those small table saws and thought how nice they’d be for just that kind of small cutting.
