This is what happened while goofing off. It’s a kiridashi made from an end piece of O2 and 15n20 damascus.
I worked on it on and off, usually while waiting for something else. The cream colored scale is mammoth ivory. Originally i was going to use bone. However i never ever throw away mammoth scrap, and this piece was exactly this size, left over from a previous project so i decided to make use of it.
I just need to add some storage scales to make sure it can be stored safely. That point is pretty delicate.
It is 1 sided, meant for right handed use. The other side is flat and has no scale attached to it because that might interfere with using it.
