    I've been dreaming of a good spatula for over 5 years.
    I feel that I've been needing a real good one for a long time now, without any end in sight..... So....
    [​IMG]chase locations near me now
    I decided to make one.... I'm probably 75% finished. I still need to clean up the grind lines, remove some milling marks, touch up the dye on my scales, and make a kydex sheath for It. It's a Real Beast.

    Sharpened edge acts as a Cleaver! It sinks in deep with little effort!

    Comparison shot...

    I still don't know how I want to profile the but? Probably what we are use to...
    And I think I will machine a groove into the side, between the slots for a pot lifter? The curve of the underside really positions the other hand nicely, for extra support.
    And I'll probably put a small radius for cleaning my grill grates. :)

    It is a spatula, obviously...
    A cleaver
    A cooking surface, acting as a small grill grate.
    Bottle opener
    Ice breaker
    Chisel
    Hammer
    Grill scraper
    Tree Bark scraper
    Kindling splitter
    Possibilities are endless...ha

    I'd love if It could be a real thing....
    Otherwise, maybe I'll have to Think about making another for a give-away?
    Idk?
    Haha/ugh!

    Pardon my spatulance, but how would it perform with the handle orientation reversed?

    I actually spent a fair amount of time pretending my actual Becker knives were spatulas... I used my Bk9 and played with my hand and thumb orientation. I did the reverse grip on purpose, it felt right. Maybe because of the extra weight? I still need to weigh it, and do the official measurements though.

    You called me Out. I wasn't sure if it was going to look funny?

    What I'm actually still uncertain is IF I put the sharp beveled edges on the "wrong" side? It made sense to me at first..... But I might of made a left handed spatula?
    I need to use it more... It's only been less than a week. I kinda rushed my goals. I wanted Something before the 4th of July..... I'll know what changes, if any before then. :D

    Not sure if That was a joke? Haha
    Or maybe the teeth would make a great meat tenderizer!

    Well the front, and one side are sharpened. Not exactly razor sharp, but sharper than "normal spatulas"

    The sheath will protect the edge when I throw it in my outdoor cooking crate. Maybe with an S hook to hang from the grill?
    The tool and hardware is stainless, in case I leave it outside or spill beer on It....haha

    I'll wager it's adamantium, with an alloy of unobtanium.

    I'm assuming it's austenitic......
    That's definitely not as good as adamantium!
