Another model that hails for my beginnings- the persian or upswept fighter of 7 – 8” in blade length- it was the first knife I ever made and has both evolved quite a bit as far as looks go but the feel, function and flavour is quite the same. In this case I reversed the bottom of the handle from 1:3 finger choil/rest of the hand to 3:1 and it is very comfortable in hand. The slanted, tapered and domed double damasteel spacers ( a new, never done feature for me) gave me a lot of grief in the making but came out just as I wanted- adds another layer to the creation in both looks and feel.
Blade Length: 8” / 20cm
Total Length: 13 1/2” / 34.5cm
