Camacho Knives #2 “Tankiri” - Hybrid Tanto Styled Nakiri Cleaver
This knife is my personal favorite of my DCI2021 batch due to it's uniquely "aggressive" s-grind tanto styled nakiri inspiried blade design which also incorporated some of my favorite materials and my first ever wooden saya build. Baldur™ patterned steel with a bolster made of 4.5 billion year old Campo del Cielo meteorite which fell to Earth approximately 4200-4700 years ago. Accented by nickel silver & g10 spacers, the handle and saya are crafted from stabilized Ancient Bog Oak which was carbon dated to 7500 years old. The saya includes a leather lining and a retention pin made of stainless steel with a faceted meteorite cap. I've also included an extra retention pin made of stainless steel with a custom Vegvisir pin cap.
