Finally being back home after a nice pandemic time in the UK, I got to finish several of my old projects. Firstly, another spoon knife.
Lovely maple burl and Pebeo Ice resin handle, thin CA finish. Forged carbon steel 1075 blade, heat treated to 62 and tempered to 57 HRC, polished and brute de forge finished, full flat in cross section. Nicely sharpened. Riveted with brass pins for a lovely contrast!

OAL: 162mm
Blade length: 41mm
Blade thickness: 2mm,tapering to 1mm
Blade width: 11mm, narrowing to 8mm
Blade curve diameter: ~25mm
Handle max. thickness: 28mm
Handle max. width: 21mm

I messed up the lower pin holes because my drill does a figure 8, someone must have dropped it while I was away, and the resin has way more bubbles than I would like. The pins are also mushroomed on the lower side so they're tight, but I made them flush.

50 USD
