Hello friends, This is a new Davis Brothers knife, a Wood Carving Small detail Knife. It is my # 2 pattern in the G.L.K. (Great Little Knife) series I've been making lately.  This knife has a relatively delicate and slender blade and slim handle, and feels great in your hand. This small blade makes a wonderful little carving knife.  I have one like it on my workbench most of the time. The smaller blades are actually more challenging to make, but very rewarding to use. This knife was hand forged by a carver, for carvers, right here on the Pacific Northwest Coast.  Davis Bros., well known for high quality hand forged NW Coast style woodcarving tools, will make a limited number of some favorites.  We make a wide selection of Crook or Crooked knives, Detail knives and Hook knives, as well as Chip Carving and Whittling knives.  Detail knives  are used in accompaniment with crook knives, as well as chip carving and other  stock removal knives.   WORKMANSHIP:  Each knife is unique and hand crafted, with no automated processes used in the more than 30 machining, forging and woodworking tasks for each one.  Some very fine tool marks may be visible on the knives. I do not attain absolute machinelike perfection, but strive to combine art, beauty and utility.  The look and feel of this tool when held is beautiful, smooth, and inspires the work at hand.  BLADE: It was made using 1095 high carbon blade steel, ground to shape then forged, refined and hardened.  It  was then tempered to keep a durable, keen edge and is extremely sharp. The blade profile has a slight curvature along the cutting edge which makes it relatively easy to sharpen.  HANDLE:  The handle is a pretty piece of Patagonian Rosewood (also known as Curupau), from Paraguay. It has a light reddish-brown background and dark speckled grain pattern, a beautiful piece. This is one of the hardest and most dense woods I have worked with, and it makes delightful handles.  This handle is a real pleasure in your hand and and tapered forward for use like a pencil, allowing precise control.  It is finished with hand rubbed  natural Shellac and Carnauba wax, a very durable finish  that highlights the beauty of the wood. CONSTRUCTION:  This knife is 7 3/8 " overall, with a 2" long blade that is  3/8" wide before tapering to a point.  The cutting edge is curved very slightly overall and curved gently at the tip, coming to a rather fine point.  The blade is set with epoxy and further secured with two bronze rivets. CARVING CHARACTERISTICS:  This little knife will be so handy it will end up on your workbench most of the time. The blade is made for creation and cleanup of fine detail work and delicate stop cuts. The curvature of the edge allows smooth curves to be cut while incising and slicing. It is ideal for carving and whittling in the round. This knife works well at the end of carving to get the final details cleaned up, and will reach neatly into a crevice. With a double bevel edge , this knife can be used with either hand, and cuts well either pushing or pulling.  The blade has plenty of strength for these tasks, but should not be used for prying. Please take care to preserve the fine tip.  For best performance, when sharpening this tool both sides should be sharpened. SAFETY FIRST! : This blade is extremely sharp. Always be aware of where  you are cutting, and do not put hands, fingers or other parts of your body in the path of the blade.  Always wear a cut-resistant carving glove on the hand not holding the knife.  And please keep this knife safely away from children.    SHIPPING AND CUSTOMER SERVICE: I have several auctions running this week , and will gladly combine shipping to save you money. Wait for the combined invoice if you have multiple purchases/wins. I offer a 30 day return policy and will personally work to resolve any issues.  I strive for Quality and Customer Satisfaction.
