So a customer sent me her dads slicer he got as a wedding gift over 50 years ago. Unfortunately his wife recently passed so the daughter wanted to surprise him. She decided to go with an understated GBP theme. I was super busy with other handles but put a rush on it for the dad factor. Other than the handle the knife was in surprisingly good shape. The blade just says Japan on it with no other markings. Was a little difficult to piece together as it was one of those half tangs. I ground the tang down and then surrounded it with brass to make it appear it has a brass tang. I also sharpened and mirror polished the blade for the young man. I liked doing this project, mostly for the sentimental reasons.

Spalted Maple Burl, brass, green and white G10, green mosaic pin.

I'm using that idea for a partial tang knife in my project box! I like it!

When I read the title, I thought for sure I'd hate the knife. A... a Packers knife? But consider me astonished. What a beautiful end result.

I agree 100% I expected to see a 'G' logo that looked cheap. Instead, I saw a beautiful, understated handle that anyone would be proud to own. The mosaic pin is such a nice touch!! GREAT JOB!!!!!

That is pretty darn awesome! Very understated but extremely classy. I may have to get a cowboys theme just to irritate the husband a little lol.
