    Hi all,
    My second chef's knife. I find them very hard to do right. Constructive criticism is welcome!

    Dimensions: OAL 11.8 inches.
    Steel is cryo-quenched AEB-L at 60 HRC
    Handle is made from black and orange G10

    Good looking handle
    A straighter flatter line on the cutting edge from front to back would allow for more efficient chopping.
    Keep it up

    I like the handle including the depression towards the front two pins.

    Thanks! I believe dead 250 grams. I did not remove too much weight from the handle in order to keep the balance on the index finger

    Thanks! I will change the handle a little for the next one. The depressions do not work all that well for all hand sizes, so they will go...I will shape the next handle for good choke grip.
