Had a knife custom made; Damascus burl scales

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

First a little back story. I found a local guy who finishes knives out of blanks and ordered a Santoku blade off him which I really liked, I finished off the smoking season using it last year and decided I wanted something of a hybrid; called him up and we came up with a design. I wanted it to have the weight and use of cleaver but also wanted  to be able to trim butts and brisket. I'm really pleased with how it turned out! I can't get a razor edge on it yet (think it's my sharpening equipment) but it seems to hold really well and is plenty sharp for trimming! The brisket was from a couple of days prior just there for a prop.

I love the look of Damascus steel, but the blades are always to pricy for me.
