Kitchen Kwaiken/Utility in AEB-L and Walnut

First test of AEB-L and frame-handle construction.
5.25″ of 1/16″ stock AEB-L, heat finish, 4.5″ walnut and G10 frame handle. Lots of chatoyance in this wood! My new “AEB-L” stencil hadn’t arrived yet, so assembly happened first, hence the appearing/disappearing mark. The etch took off more of the heat colors than I expected, but this is just a test blade for my kitchen.
