new chef knife

Recommended Posts

Here's some pics of a japanese inspired chef knife i just finished for a friend of mine. It's from a blade i had forged out before christmas that is made of c1045 steel, and quenched using gunter's super quench. I think the wood is maple it is hard wood anyways, i just liked the grain so i used it. The blade is 12 inches and is flat on one side, it has brass fittings and is held together with a brass pin. On the case for this blade is my friends name in katakana,he requested it. This blade was kind of fun to do after doing two katanas. I have one more blade to do from this steel,then it's on to some c1095 cable. hope you like.

That is pretty slick. How long is it? I think I would manage to take one of my fingers off real easy!

That's a great kitchen knife! What stock did you start with?

 

Also, any pics of those katanas? :D If so, I'd love to see em!
