I present the “Galapiat” halfway between kitchen knife and knife camp.

The blade is carbon steel 90MCV8, selective quenching. This has become my favorite reference carbon steel, both machined to be treated and to sharpen. It gives amazing results!
The handle is mounted in Wenge with red inserts and rivets 100C6 steel.
The beast measured 27 cm in total.

Nice looking knife. I’ve not used this steel before. I have used O1 and 440 stainless, preferring O1, actually. Easy to heat treat and good edge. Does this steel have advantages? I’ve not made any knives in a while, so perhaps I’m out of the loop.
