    Hello everyone!

    I’m new to this forum but I would like your thougts on the two knives (or more accurately I probably would like to show of a bit) that I finished a month ago.

    They are made from the same bar of Damasteel twist (this is why I call them twins), full flat grind with an cutting angle of 19 degrees.

    Full tang construction with damascus pattern visible around the perimeter of the handle. Hardened to 60-61 HRC. The total legnth is a little bit over 30cm (approx 12 incheckningen). They are ground from thick bars to get some weight into the blade which gives a spine width of 3,7mm (approx 0,15 inches)

    The handles are made from stabilized maple with bronze pins.

    Damasteel went as far as to include them on their website as inspiration. (See link below)

    Anyhow I want your thoughts one these blades, is there something you would have done differently if you were designing them (would like some input into my next project)

    Lovely pieces. Kind of thick for kitchen knives IMHO, but they are gorgeous.

    Thanks madcap! Yes they are really thick at the spine, I just really like my knives to feel solid :). They are ground full flat and the edges razor sharp so they work in the kitchen despite the large spines. But yes I know that the "normal" kitchen knife is a lot thinner.

    There is one other plus with the thick steel an that is that the pattern in te steel is clearly visible on the spine and around the handle.
