Black Tiger right and left sides

Posted on Nov 8, 2016 |

Cutting edge length: 300mm Blade breadth: 50mm handle length: 125mm. I made a thin blade with maximum 4,5mm at the root, and most of the length under 2mm.
The main flex is at the the first third from the point, like a fishing rod.
The core damascus is way darker due to the ultra High Carbon content, then comes the carbon migration zone, then the springy damascus skin, and at the top the dead soft outer skin with the very fine pattern.
