After several months of anticipation, I got a pair of kitchen knives today. Theyíre forged by John Grady Hippard from Corsicana. He won an episode of Forged in Fire that aired back in the spring.
The steel is carbon/stainless San mai. The scales are splated pecan that came from my grandfathers home place.
Thanks to MikeC on here for cutting and stabilizing the scales for me.
