Gyuri Posted January 5, 2015 Share Posted January 5, 2015 I forged this one more than two years ago, when a customer wanted a simple carbon steel slicer. The business was cancelled when much of the rough filing was already done, so the blade was thrown on a shelf and stayed until one of my friends found it. He liked the shape (just as me), and told me that I should do something with it. My workshop went through quite a development in that period and finishing the blade was a fraction of the work it would have been two years earlier, so I decided to make a decent kitchen knife for myself. There are a number of things that I would do differently. The blade should be thinner, I should have left more of the forged surface, and I swear I will never ever use leather for spacers again. Still, looking at it makes me satisfied. Blade is Uddeholm Arne (around 60 HRC), handle is cherry wood with black leather spacers and fully hidden pin design. OAL length is 290 mm. Let me know how you like it. Thanks for reading! My blog: http://cerberuscutlery.wordpress.com/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
