    "Corpsegrinder" is a reference to a machine built by one of the protagonists in the science fiction novel "Mona Lisa Overdrive", by William Gibson. When I profiled this out, it was what immediately popped into my head, so I ran with it.

    For this knife, I drew a great deal of inspiration from my brothers Don Andrade, and Rick Marchand, which I'm sure is pretty easy to see.

    The 8” blade is of .150” thick Crucible CPM-4v, with a 14-1/2” overall length, and features a forced patina - a first, for me.

    The cocobolo for the handle is old-growth stuff from my buddy Don Andrade, held in place with hidden pins and a carbon fiber thonghole tube, and features a leather cord wrap sunk into a rebated channel. Weight is 15-5/8 ounces, and point of balance is just in front of the plunge. The cocobolo will get a beautiful, deep, dark red with black streaks as it ages.

    Oh wow is that sweet.

    Cocobolo is my favorite and the blade is really fucking killer.

    What's it weigh?

    Is it a commission piece?

    This weighed in at 15-5/8 ounces. I don’t take orders, but someone has been given right of first refusal on this one. Hoping to hear back from them soon...
