Matched Chef knives in CanaryWood


Recommended Posts

Just finished these up last night.

 

Matched Set, Gyuto and Petty in Canary wood (genetically similar to purpleheart, it's a tulipwood)

Both are 52100 Steel with Multiple HT cycles because I wanted to try it and I've been VERY pleased with the results

 

Gyuto,

 

255mm blade

balances at the R in my mark, just in front of the heel.

Canarywood handle with Black Paper micarta bolster

.085" 2.15mm thick spine at the heel

.065" 1.65mm thick at mid point

54mm tall at heel

 

Petty,

this turned out a little longer than I was really going for, I intended to end up with about 165mm

 

176mm edge

balances in the bolster area

Canarywood handle with Black Paper micarta bolster

.065" 1.65mm thick spine at the heel

.055" 1.39mm thick at mid point

41mm tall at the heel

Thin! :ph34r:

 

I bet that was fun to grind...but you did it right, of course. B) I bet they chop and slice like dreams, what with the 52100 carbides and such.

Not to bad really, I saw Tim Hancock do a grinding demo at Batson's a few years ago and it REALLY works well for these.

As I was telling Stephen on Facebook, I was using it in a jewelry box I'd made, I was sanding some panels on a drum sander that grandpa had built and I kept getting these small bees flying around me. The fragrance of the wood was attracting them.

Hey Stephen,

 

Nice blades. I took a look at a bunch of your recent work (on Facebook maybe) and it all looked great. Keep it up!
