Modern Utility Slicer

This is a beautiful utility slicing knife recently finished for a local artist. I was excited to make this knife for Paul because I know he will cherish it and use it daily in his kitchen.

I decided to go with a new handle style. Employing a slightly different shape and expanding on some of the simple inlay I have been doing lately. Here I decided to add some carving and to use the smaller inlay to hide the silicon bronze pin that sets the knife in the handle.
I think it turned out amazing! AND> It sure feels wonderful in the hand.

This knife is 11.75" OAL with a 6&3/8" blade that has been forge to shape out of 1095 high carbon tool steel. The handle is Arizona Desert Ironwood with Lemon-wood inlay and detail caring.

I hope you enjoy the images:)
