That is a beautiful chef's knife.  Looks very comfortable for the hand.

Thats a good looking Chefs knife.

You gonna make her a couple of companion blades to go with it?

Just curious...what did you do for edge geometry and heat treat on it?

Thank you!

Yessir, I got some 1/16" stock last go around and plan to make a paring knife and eventually a Nigiri knife and a Cleaver, the cleaver will probably come first as she grinds chickens for her cattery so it'll see tons of use. 

I ground the whole blade down to about 0.007" and then it got even thinner with hand sanding, I didn't measure it before sharpening but I'd guess it was around 0.005" before I set the edge.  I don't have any way of measuring edge angle, but it was about 10-15 degrees per side. It's 2" wide at the widest point, so it's basically a fricken laser beam. 

Nice. With that kind of angle it should be sharp but relatively durable yet be able to be easilly touched up with a steel.
