    I usually make my chef knives from 1/8 inch stock but some like a knife a little beefier so this one is from 3/16 inch 1095 high carbon steel
    I heat treat in a digitally controlled oven to create a fine grain structure at Rc 58-60
    Flat grind with a slight convex grind
    Professionally stabilized maple burl handle. Please note the small worm holes that have been filled
    Overall length: 13 inches
    Blade: 8 inches
    Some things I have learned while making kitchen knives for the past 25+ years:
    1. Round the top of the blade because some people like to choke up over the handle
    2. I use a steel that stays sharp and is easy to bring back with a few swipes of a sharpening steel. (1095 will rust and develop a patina with use but if it is dried after washing and even a few drops of cooking oil will keep it rust free.)
    3. Make the handle as comfortable as possible with contours and a palm swell
