Every year our company does a fundraiser for local groups. We raffle items, and every year I usually mod something for raffle or silent auction.
This year I'm going a little different than the standard pocket knife. I'm doing this Santoku knife for silent auction. I bought the VG-10 blank from Jantz, so all I need to do is put some kind of handles on it. Keeping in mind it's kitchen duty, I would want something that will hold up to moisture and other kitchen "stuff". These types of knives are not meant for the dishwasher, so I can get a little creative, but want the material to stand up to kitchen use. Off the cuff, I was thinking some kind of micarta, but I'd like to open up the floor to your material suggestions, comments, concerns, etc.
