    [​IMG] Finally figured out the right link to post here. Sorry for the earlier test posts, fellas. Would delete them if I could or knew how. Anyway, lets see if I can get the other pics posted. 52100 chef knife, part of a set.

    [​IMG] Parer in O1. Thanks for looking, and my apologies again for the messed up posts earlier. Was trying to figure out which link to copy/past into BF from imgur. Got it sorted, I think.

    Ha! If you win the lottery, I'm calling YOU!

    Thanks FOG2!

    Joe, I mentioned this in the custom forum, but the reason for the different carbon steels is that is what I had in the proper thicknesses for each knife. And the AEB-L, customer wanted a Santoku with the set, I had just finished that Santoku and asked them if they would like me to use that as part of the set, as it was a copy of my wife's favorite knife (customer was one of my wife's SLP instructors). Hence AEB-L in a carbon line-up.

    I'm starting to lean towards one steel thickness for most all the knives I make. In the ~0.080" range. Hunters, EDC, Chef's, etc. Paring knives in the ~0.063" range.

    I like that design, Joe. Sure to be a good cutter.
    Natlek, keep up the good work!
    John, that M4 paring knife is spectacular, the forced patina makes it really stand out.

    This was my submission for the 2017 kitchen kith in the shop talk forum.

    It's 1/16" S35VN, Rc61, 70/30 offset grind, ffg on the left and d-grind on the right. It's taken down to 0.005" before sharpening, and sharpened at 9dps. The handle is African Blackwood and Quarter sawn Honduras Mahogany. The Mahogany will develop a rich reddish brown tone over time (think traditional yacht cabinetry.) it has a great chatoyance, especially when quarter sawn.

    1/16 I cant even imagine how well it will cut. Does it have flex in it? Nice work sir!

    It's not as flexy as you would think. It was 3/32" to start with but one of my clamps broke during quench, and the handle end had a bit of a twist. I got most out during temper, and ground the rest out.

    My first attempt at a chef knife, and second handmade knife, overall.
    8" 1095 blade. full tang 12" overall (probably a little short on the handle)
    red G10 spacer/liner & Kirinite 'Black Pearl' handle scales

    heat treated with clay to create a hamon, then tried sandblast finish, then tried high polish.
    I may leave it as is, or may re-etch for more visible hamon.

    Any tips and/or critiques would be highly appreciated, as I am new and highly coachable
    Thanks

    oh yeah, 100% hand finished following heat treat scale removal, and sharpened to
    14° (28°-30°) razor sharp edge. (What I am most excited about!)
