General utility

Got a part finished blade from Rob J Evans in -  the middle one here:


He described it as like a Rat Izula knife and I didn't look at the measurements so was a bit surprised when it turned up. The Rat Izula is a lot more petite than this one!

This is a 5mm thick piece of steel and a good handful.

The bevels on it as it arrived were a high flat grind with a thick edge on it still. I couldn't resist convexing the bevels - I didn't get round to taking a picture before I started, unfortunately!

5mm thick, nice wide blade and a convex edge will be a beautiful slicer but strong as anything!

Handle plan is black micarta with stainless steel fittings. Maybe some red liners too.
