Looks really good. What do you mean by "full, blended grinds?"

AMPO1 Thank you very much for the kind comments. :)

tk59. Thanks, I will do my best to explain what they are as well as why I do it this way.
The grinds are basically flat grinds that are then blended together adding convexity to the face. of the blade. Its subtle yet very noticeable when cutting sticky veggies.
I do it this way, because if I just do a convex grind, I often loose material at the spine and the blade is left to FAT behind the edge. Where by doing full grinds, then blending them. I get a nice thin edge and good food release. Hope this makes sense?

I also have NO plunge lines on this knife, This is the second knife I have done without them. It is a clean look and I like it for knives that dont have a bolster. But I think I will continue to do the plunge lines on the knives I add bolsters to. As it adds to the look and flow of the knife in my opinion.

Thanks again for checking out my work. Please let me know what you think, I am always trying to learn. and feedback from you guys has been invaluable to me. Thank you.

God Bless
Randy

Thanks for the explanation, Randy. I think I understand everything except for why it's easier to get a thin edge this way. Nevertheless, if it works, that's all that matters.

That is a fine blade, but I have to ask how long it took to come up with the triple H pin? That's an elaborate touch.

Randy, those "H's" in your signature pin is sweet! Love it. Wish I could get a bearpaw, or a fancy scriptic "R" Well done on the knife!
