This block had a fault in it that wasn't visible until the oil hit it... Still took alot of force to break it open.

I have never been a fan of this style/method of handle ..mainly because of the Machi (neck) gap that often goes with it ..
So I thought I would give it a crack with a tight as can be friction fit + no epoxy + brass pin

Timber is ..Myrtle birdseye....I think🤔

Anyone seen a hardness tester with this knob on the side that adjusts the dial guage??. Great tool reliably reading 59.5 hrc on the test piece.

Given my like of recycled steels this will be invaluable

I was unhappy with the bolster fit up on this nakiri .
It looked fine but once it was all glued up it just wasn't right so.....off she comes..
On the flip side... I got a good look at my process from the inside and I am very happy... no epoxy voids and nice tight fit in the tang + dowel..certainly isn't going anywhere.. #obblades #maker #bladesmith #chef #forged #prep #stabalised #burl #stabalised #space #chef #paring #linecook #instachef #cheflife  #epoxy
