M390 knife with silver wire inlay
« on: August 22, 2020, 08:18:17 PM »
This is my second time trying a silver wire inlay on a knife. It's a slight improvement over the first time, but I still have some improvement to go. One mistake I made was using dead soft fine silver instead of half hard sterling silver. This made it difficult to work with because it was too soft. But to be honest, I still like it. And M390 is an awesome steel. It's not much fun to sharpen, but it sure stays sharp a long time.
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.

Very nice looking handle.

Nicely done!  I have one knife with M390 I agree with your observations, but I do like it.  You really shined up the steel and to make a nice package.
