This is a set of 2 wootz kitchen knives that was made on request for a professional chef. The big one is an 8" chef knife, the little one is 6". The handles are Juma Dragon. The guard plate is stabilized fossil mammoth molar. In the background you see an example of the wootz ingot that I started with. The pattern does not always show up well so I included closeups of the big one. The wootz was smelted by Krzysztof Rusek The colors may seem strange but this was a request from the chef and if I recall correctly, these were the favorite colors of him and her. The molar was my choice. He didn't request anything special but I had those 2 pieces lying around, waiting for just a project like this so I took the opportunity to use them.
