    Finally finished this commission that's been in progress awhile: a kosher-slaughtering-inspired knife for ritual sacrifice of wood-pellet bags. Imagine holding a large wood pellet bag in a headlock against your chest and sort of cutting its throat (or perhaps gut) to spill all the contents into the pellet stove hopper. Purpose-driven design. :) With sacrifice-traditional ram's horn scales over ruby red G10 liners. First use of flared tubes. Blade is 5+" of differentially hardened 1084.

    A choil/sharpening notch would get caught in the bag material this thing is expected to cut. Sharpening notches are hit or miss. They're not necessary most of the time, tho they can be useful as a sort of "tip" back near the handle.
