    Another kitchen knife incorporating fossils [DigsFossils -n- Knives]

    My take on a gyuto kitchen knife
    CPM REX121, Rc 70 (not a typo)
    This high vanadium cobalt bearing tool steel has 3.4% carbon (also not a typo)

    Handle: D-shaped, right handed preference, using two orthoceras fossils from Morocco dating back about 400 million years ago. Reconstituted turquoise with black web, black G10, and pure nickel.

    Just testing out this "super steel". I don't expect high toughness with a steel loaded with carbides but I do expect the edge to hold a long time and a bit challenging to resharpen.

    9 7/8" cutting edge, 2 1/4" heel height.
