    Comments about Zhen Bread Knife Blank VG-10 Stainless Steel 9-1/2" L x 5/64" T (240mm x 1.8mm) :

    This is a great looking knife blank and is very sharp. Wrap the blade with electrical tape before handling. I flattened the tang on a diamond plate to get a tight fit. The supplied cutler's rivets are a little short if you want to use scales thicker than 1/4". I countersunk them in 3/8" bloodwood so the rivet heads were about 1/8" below the finished surface. I epoxied the scales to the tang and set the rivets to hold it together while the epoxy cured. I then shaped the scales and filled the rivet holes with epoxy mixed with sanding dust. After final shaping and fine sanding I finished the handle with CA glue. This kit is a great value and makes a beautiful and very functional slicer.
