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.

Chefs knife looks very good and am waiting to see the clever and the bowie. Overall, good work sir.

While I like where your head's at, I don't believe there is any evidence of Vikings using spiked axes.... Unfortunately. 

But I'll be ordering some with a spike anyways!

That last photo reminds me of a Halloran STX, in a very good way. Seems like a mean little blade.

  Fit, finish and overall quality is outstanding.   Wicked freaking sharp as well.  The sheath is well made and perfectly fit.

I am beyond happy.  Let's get stabby!

I may have left this one too long!!! I feel like this is the start of a sci-fi movie

I hate making stuff that’s only used to make stuff, but sometimes it’s necessary. I put together this big ol tool rest for grinding

We are going to have to talk when I get some cash stashed about the latter stabby.

Kinda digging that vibe. What the stock thickness?

Works for me! 
the top on for @Community Member was 0.145” CPM3V and the bottom went to @Community Member and is 0.110” A2 

CPM3V, natural canvas micarta and desert ironwood. I’ll pretty much always use a liner material when doing natural handle scales and it helps stabilize the natural material. Even desert ironwood will move around a bit.

toxic green and blaze orange anyone?

here’s a couple variations on my pocket puukko. Both have a longer handle and the orange one is wider with a longer blade as well.
