    Didnt know where to post this but I needed a draw knive to debark a cherry log . My plan is to cut it in half then make a trough so I can place it around the lally column in my bar
    Started with piece of flat stock 20190126_144632.jpg 20190126_152344.jpg 20190127_133805.jpg 20190127_133816.jpg

    Made the handles out of some standing dead pear I know that's not cherry its oak . Closest piece of wood in the pile

    1095 not great rust resistance but gives a great edge.

    @SS396driver good call on 1095 actually. My experience with it has been incredible. Such a resilient steel which will work well with that application. I think the esee knifes are a good testament to 1095. But yeah keep some oil on that thing like you said it does rust. I’ve literally driven 1095 into concrete (by accident) and I swear you could still shave with it. VG10 or the like would have chipped off in a million pieces. You aren’t cutting sushi here haha.
