Got a Butcher friend of mine who asked me to make him a new quality 10 inch Butcher knife.
The one he has been using for years has seen better days.
He also stated he wanted it to look old and used.
I chose a new carbon steel Russell Green River 10" butcher blade.
Tarnished her up with a vinegar bath.
Used some weathered black walnut I gathered in the local forest.
Used stainless pins.
Also sharpened it like a razor.
Just gave it to him today and he was very pleased.
He used it for the first time as I watched him cut up ten choice T bones for me as payment for putting together the knife for him.
We are gonna' eat well this weekend.
