The black Crow .
I love looking at Nature for inspiration especially for my knife blade shapes and have recently been re looking at bird’s beaks .
The Crows beak kiridashi was made from 5mm thick 52100 bearing steel which was jimped in 3 key areas for traction control and I added a top swedge to add a needle like tip to the beak .
It was then etched in ferric chloride , the mirror polished edge and top swedge have gone a deep dark color creating a great contrast with the flat of the blade .
The simple handle wrap is black sheathed Kevlar cord from Twinlineusa.com and I will probably add a black kydex neck carry sheath with Kevlar lanyard to complete the package .
