Tomorrow at 6PM EST, we’ll have this beast come up for raffle!
I don’t make these often. I believe this is number 6 in total. Our own Mutant has the first iteration of the design. Every once in a while, that Cocobolo handled Kurki he has pops into my head and I get the itch to make another.
This one is forged in 80CrV2 tool steel. Rough ground fuller and hand finished bevels. Handles are done in Marblewood with Green Canvas Micarta bolsters. Red fiber liners accent the tang and the transition between the handles and bolsters. Stainless steel hardware secures the entire package. The handle is fully contoured for proper ergonomics and will allow long chopping sessions with minimal hand/arm fatigue.
Below is a video of the blade in action. My apologies for not being my normal asshole self. I was dealing with an impacted tooth and couldn’t muster the energy to properly do the knife justice. All of the swings shown were about half power to avoid excruciating pain lol. But you get the idea.
