I present the Marna-mouth, the last fixed knife straight out of the workshop.
The blade is steel XC75, full quenching and guilloche way “Mama.”
The handle is a combination of Walnut, Oak, Cherry and Padauk.
Rivets (copper and brass) are homemade.
It measures 20.5 cm by 9.5 cm sharp.
Weight of the beast: 111 grams
Side finishing the blade is mirror polished, the handle has been sanded to 500 grit then passed fondur and finally oiled.
Why Mama-mouth? Because its overall shape reminded me of the mammoth … (Pis also because it sounded good …)
Marna-mouth is to be found on my blog.
