    This is a "One Off" tanto that I recently finished. I may or may not offer more of these in the future. This knife has outstanding edge geometry, and is an amazing cutter. It would make an excellent large carry knife, but would also work well in the kitchen.

    The blade is made from 52100 steel hardened to 60 - 61 HRC for outstanding edge retention. I performed all heat treat and tempering operations using my computer controlled heat treating oven. The blade features a very satin finish and extremely crisp grinds. 52100 is a great steel that takes and extremely fine edge while having excellent edge retention.

    The handle is constructed of mil-spec para-cord over a leather underlay. The cord is impregnated with epoxy to prevent unraveling or moisture retention. Very grippy!

    The knife features a chisel hollow grind for a right hand user that was ground using a 12” contact wheel. The grinds are crisp and very well finished. Excellent yokote. The knife is extremely sharp, with excellent edge geometry!

    - 52100
    - 60 - 61 HRC
    - Just Under 1/8 Stock
    - Two Tone Satin Finish
    - Hollow Chisel Grind (Right Hand)
    - 10.375" OAL, Actual Cutting Edge 5.125"
    - Phenomenally Sharp
    - Kydex Sheath Drilled for a Tek-Lok

    Thanks! I think it would do pretty well in the kitchen, especially as a sushi knife.

    I tried sending you a PM over on the other forum, but it looks like your inbox is full.
