Kiridashi by Logan-Pearce Kiridashi by Logan-Pearce
Kiridashi

OAL: 5 1/2"
Blade Length: 2"
Blade Material: 240 layers of 5160/15N20 Twist Damascus Pattern.
Handle Material: Fossil Coral


Good morning!

This one was harder to take a picture of than my recent ones have been. I thought I was actually getting better at taking photos, but then reality hit me once again. :D

I wanted to mix things up a little bit, since I've been doing a lot of tactical knives and Remnants.

Gotta keep you on your toes by spicing it up a little bit.

I hope you like the way it tastes. :P

Also, is this one already sold to anyone? Or is it the original first copy that you'll keep? And if that's the case, are you going to make more? O.o Because depending on the price, I might be very interested in getting one :)

This one was the original and it is sold. I plan on making a few more, but the price really depends on the material that I use for the handle.

I'm just wondering, when you say blade length, is that from the end of the handle to the tip of the blade, or is it just the length of the blade portion that's sharpened?

The coral handle is beautiful! What a lovely knife! In terms of durability, how does coral stand up?

:iconlogan-pearce:
Logan-Pearce Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks! It's stabilized and sealed, so it will last a long time. However, if it was dropped with some force behind it on the ground, then there is a chance some of it would break off. It would probably be a small section, since it isn't really that brittle. :D

Huh...well the things you learn! I keep going back and looking at it...and keep thinking it'd look lovely on a kitchen set. I'm so domestic. I love your deviations! Keep up the awesome work; you're a very skilled artist!

Nice blade too, hard not to like the Japanese utility style they always sell well. Great job as usual. :-)

Yep! It was like that when I got it and thank you. I like the way some of their knives look. I just like to modify them a lot to be closer to my style. :P

this is stunning! The use of damascus and the fossilized coral work really well together. The shape is my favorite part. It looks like it's really comfortable to hold and still very functional.
great work! :D

I'd buy it.
I love the handle material, you custom knife makers get to work with some of the coolest materials imaginable. Put a meteorite bolster with mammoth ivory scales on a knife and you get to hold something that's been in outer space since the dawn of time, along with irreplaceable evidence of something that's been extinct for thousands of years. Then you even get to slice apples with it :)

lol! Yeah, I agree completely. Some of the materials are freaking awesome. I haven't had the pleasure off getting my hands on any meteorite yet, but when I do...

Probably like $80. The handle material is expensive as heck, but it does look awesome. :D

I couldn't find this on your website with a price. Will you be doing more?
Reply
:iconlogan-pearce:
Logan-Pearce Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Yeah, I haven't put it on there yet. It's going to be $80, mainly because of the handle material. The damascus wasn't too bad, since it's not a huge knife, I was able to get a few solid pieces out of it. I'm honestly not sure if I will make more or not. I think it looks like an awesome knife and I do like the Asian styled knives, but I'm not crrrraaaazzzzyyy about making them. That's why I only have a few in my gallery. :P
