Pattern welded san-mai Chef's Knife

Recommended Posts

Here is a custom Chef's Knife I just finished up for a customer.


The 22,5cm blade is forged in an exotic jet-turbine alloy mixed with high carbon steel, folded to 44 layers, twisted and laminated in a san-mai lamination with Øberg-steel for the core.


The handle is in stabilized Zebra wood, Jamaican blue mahoe, buffalo horn and vulcanized fiber.


weight: 214 grams
Blade length: 22,5 cm
Blade width: 3,5 cm
Blade thickness: 4 mm
Blade hardness: 63 HRC
Handle length: 12,5 cm
Handle thickness: 1,7cm

sincerely, Alveprins.

Very nice work! It looks slender with nice lines and the wood structure matches the steel pattern. Handle resembles katana bevels, never seen that before.

Thanks man! :)

Actually - I just freestyled a handle like this earlier - and since it has kind of become a style of mine. I find the diamond shaped handle to be quite handy to control the angle of the blade when cutting, slicing and dicing... I also find it aestetically pleasing. :D

That it is. The whole knife, not just the handle. What does the KH in your maker’s mark stand for?

Hehe, okay. Thought it might have been an abbreviation of your forge name.
