Damascus Chef's Knife


Recommended Posts

1084 and 15n20 Damascus (was a ladder pattern but I didn't press it in deep enough and lost most of the pattern by the time I got to my final thickness

 

Stats:

 

240mm (9 1/2") Edge

370mm (14 1/2") overall

49mm tall at the heel

 

1.85mm (.073") spine at the heel

1.73mm (.068") spine at center

0.51mm (.020") spine at 1" from tip

 

balances 8mm in front of the heel (in line with the F in my maker's mark)

the edge before sharpening measures .005 at the heel, .003 at the middle, and .003 at the tip (at lease as close as I can tell with my calipers.)

 

Box Elder and cocobolo Octagon style handle with a stainless spacer.

Beautiful work, man.

I like everything about it, especially the materials used... lovely damascus, and burl.

Someone will be very happy with that!

Thanks guys,
