This is version 2.0 of Jazzlet’s Eye Gouger, now with a much shorter blade for better leverage, and a thicker back for prying out recalcitrant spud-chunks.
The photo is not very good. Nor is the lighting.
Handle is maple burl and bog oak. Blade is 1095 wire rope damascus, which was forged end-on so that the cut ends of the wires make a kind of cool floral tile pattern. All I can say is “thank goodness for hydraulic presses!” when it comes to taking a 2″ chunk of steel end-on and flattening it into a little pancake, then turning the pancake into a blade.
I made the tang unusually thick because I was thinking perhaps Jazzlet’s real plan is to cut lorry tires with it. In which case, it’s ready.
