Special fullered ,forged gemetry Petty/suji -190
190mm Petty-suji, Special forge geometry with forged in fullers.
Very special knife in pure iron clad 1.2442, water quenched for more refined grain.
These are my usual forged in geometry then fullered, one to punctuate the bevel, then one for show on the spine, these are very hard to get right and this one is nearly perfect, has a very slight rh bias, tiny bit flatter on the backside, will make it cut even nicer for a right handed.
The spine remains thick and the blade is super stiff, the vein from the fulling adds to this, the lower geometry on this one is super thin. very fun large-ish petty with enough height for versatility.
Blade length/height 190 x 42
Thickness at bolster 9.5mm
Thickness at spine over heel 6mm
Thickness at top of bevel heel/tip 1mm/0.8mm
Handle is also very fun, a piece of hibred burl/ reddy gold resin.
