Rescued from the Trash Bucket

About 2 months ago, I was attempting a double hollow-grind and kept making mistakes, so I got frustrated and threw the darn thing in the trash bucket.........(of course I never throw anything away forever - I might need it someday!)

Anyway, after watching "Mama" try to slice a tomato the other night with a "Tiawan" special (actually she was bruising it), I decided to make her something a little easier to work with. I dug out the old mistake from the trash bucket and "wah-lah"..............I present "Mama's Mater Slicer"

440C double hollow-grind
Linen Micarta Handles
Brass Pins
8 1/4" OAL
3 1/2 Blade to Plunge Cuts

Thanks for looking..........I'm gonna go and make myself a good ole "Mater" sandwich with lots of salt and pepper. ..........Robert

The knife from your trash bucket looks nicer than many I have seen on tables at knife shows.

If you throw away knives that look that good, your good knives must look awesome!! Like the other guy said, "What is your address and garbage pick up day?"

Wow, I like everything about this one. Very fuctional and very flowing design. I especially like the integral bolster and the way it flows into the handle!!!

Am I missing something ? I didn't think this was an integral bolster knife - just the way the shadow looks in front of the handle slabs. Jason. :confused:

Jason, I looked at it again and I think you are right.

But I still love the curve where the handle meets the blade!!!

Thanks

Thanks for the comments gang. I got lucky on this piece after digging it out of the trash.

I guess the photo IS deceiving.........it DOES look like an integral bolster, but alas, its not. If I ever get that good, I am going full time.

Again......Thanks

Robert
