Here is a new steak knife I made. The blade is damascus steel and the handle amboyna burl, knickel silver bolsters. I have to make 3 more now.

Very nice…but your mistaken, you need to make four more because you forgot about mine. LOL
Did the blade come as a kit or did you forge the blade also?

She’s a real beaut. What are those round pieces on the handle inlays, fasteners, or what?

Nice looking blade there. First time I ever saw damascus steel in a lowly steak knife instead of a sword. Isn’t there usually 6 steak knives in a set?

I love the nickle silver touches. Are the rivets the same material?

I bought the blade from a company on the web called two finger knife and the remaining supplies from Jantz. The fancy rivets you see are actually mosaic tubes that go all the way through the handle. They are also knickel silver. Materials are expensive so that is why I only will make 4. My next set will probably be made of stainless and cost less.

Actually I should have also stated the mosaic tubes have knickel silver and brass in them…

Just had to take a look at Two Finger Knife and drool a while, I can now understand why you are making
four. Now you have to start planning the box or knife holder for these knives, I am sure they are not
going to get stored in the silverware drawer. Very wonderful looking first project. Welcome to Lumberjocks,
and thank you for sharing your project and its material sources. One more thing to put on my bucket
list, as soon as I get the bucket built.

Great work I’ll be cking out the site to see how bad I’ll be shocked…. Look fwd to seeing more work.

Ok I looked at the web page prices seems fair price for high quality blades. Are you really happy with them?
