The design is shamelessly copied from North Coast Knives:
Credit where credit is due.
The blade is from an old saw blade, heated to red hot and quenched in used motor oil. The wood is pistachio, from an abandoned orchard nearby. It has been spalting for a year now, in damp sawdust and mulch. The spalting didn't penetrate as at as I had expected, but now I know. Three layer CA finish, sanded to 600 with rubbing alcohol. That way, if it does enter the wood, it should evaporate before it can swell the grain.
Please excuse the less-than-phenomenal pictures.
Showing the spalt pattern and bookmatching.
In case any of you annoyingly observant people notice : yes, the bridge around the hole was accidentally worn through while sanding.
