    So I felt like I needed a new kitchen knife

    Yup, I felt like the hinkle chef knife in my set was just not all that great, so I decided that if I was to criticize something, I should at least try to make one LOL.

    Well here it is, my version of an 8" chefs knife, AEBL steel, heat treated to a 61 Rockwell hardness, detachable Kirinite scales with a inlayed rubber gasket on the inside to prevent water infiltration beneath the scales and stainless hardware.


    Now now bear in mind this is only the beginning of a 400 hand rubbed satin finish, it is only for my personal kitchen and will probably go no higher than a 400 satin finish. Also it is not without flaw, But like I stated its for my kitchen abuse not one of my customers.

    Feels good in in my hand, fairly balanced, I have high hopes for this one. Total build time start to finish including heat treat and temper times 8hrs from raw steel. Not too bad

    On Photo #2 (which is the same as Photo #5) you can see the Bullshit scratch that I still either have to remove or accept as I only get to keep the flawed ones LOL

      Flaws don't bother me. It's a tool that'll get used. Obviously you're the craftsman tho. I'm the cook at home also. Also put me down for a frame lock flipper too, I'm calling dibs already

        Can you laser etch his Goat Head avatar into the blade? Cause that would be the shizzizle.
