My brother Steve took some more natural shots of my W's pattern knives today with his pro-gear. Thought it would be a good way to start my Gallery and some different shots to the ones on the individual threads. Anyway to the pictures.:D

Thanks Guys, the chopping board is from a big plank of apple wood. I flatted it down and put some rubber feet on. Its very soft wood and has warped a bit but it seems to do the job very well for the time being. I made up some wax for it with beeswax and mineral oil.

You are giving me a headache.. "Rustable" knives are not my thing.. but it is calling.. esp the feather damascus with the matching damascus ferule, and the wood with a short story.....

Here is my opinion on your knives WillC. Remember this is purely based on the pictures I have seen as I never have tried them my self:

I really like your profile, and by the looks the geometry. I also fancy you handles.
So based on your pictures I would put knives above many other kitchenknifemakers even among some of the makers here on the forum.

Hows your prices, gonna keep em secret or can you post it openly?

WillC
01-11-2012, 01:03 PM
Thank you very much Guys. Olvind, your very kind. These pieces were a real challenge.
My prices are on my blog for pre-orders and some work is available. I'm trying to work out a way to price different damascus. There is more time in a Feathered W's to my W's pattern and due to the nature of the material I get less out blades out of it. So I think a Feathered W's Pattern like this would be a special order from my standard pricing for damascus, which is still high end damascus. I told you I was having trouble wording it!:D I'll work it out.
I think I will just stick to having a couple of options on my priced damascus line up each year, then do everything else as a special pattern priced according to time desirability. Or special order for ordering a pattern that I have produced before.

I found those last two knives literally breathtaking.

stevenStefano
01-11-2012, 04:23 PM
That petty is incredible and the "turbulence" is by far your best looking damascus pattern in my eyes. It looks kind of alive, which you don't get with all the others. On that one the pattern in the wood and the pattern in the blade complement each other really well. Great work

Magnificent knife. Your rate of progress in this game is so very impressive.

Aphex
01-11-2012, 09:14 PM
Now that is some serious bling going on there. I was unshure of the full damascus ferrule of the chestnut at first, maybe a bit to bling for a simple wood. The more i look at it though, the more i like it. The maple knife i got instantly though, the damascus goes really well with the colourful burl. You should check out Devin's "chevron" knives. Those are the standard as far as i'm concerned regarding damascus ferrules and caps. I think the addition of the spacer at the rear of his handles really sets them of perfectly, something i think would suit yours as well.

All that being said though, i'm not suprised these sold straight away, really top quality craftsmanship.

PS, did these go to Singapore as well!

WillC
01-12-2012, 03:59 AM
Many thanks all for the kind words.
Thanks Aphex, no the Petty is off to New York and the Gyuto sold locally to a damascus addict. :D

Thanks Guys that means allot.:biggrin:
We have grass in abundance in Herefordshire:D Its been a very mild winter so far though, only just had the first frost. Must be that global warming.
Glad you like the chestnut bcrano, I've not really seen it used much and I just thought it was very nice and subtle.
The profile would have been taller if I could have got it out of the billet but I like this profile, somewhere between a tall Suji and a Gyuto.

Bryan G.
01-17-2012, 06:44 PM
I like the profile! Was not sure about the bolster/ferrule hybrid with the metal until you got a close up of the pattern. The feather blade pattern is gorgeous. At this rate the way you guys are producing and advancing I am going to end up with 600 knives easy by the time I'm 60. You guys are amazing.

Kind Regards

Hard to keep up with all threads and I neglected this one. Beautiful knives! Wondering about the damascus ferruls, how heavy are the knives, I would expect them to be quite a bit more than with a horn ferrule. Not that I would mind, I like a little heft to my knives.

Stefan

WillC
01-30-2012, 05:10 AM
Thanks you Pesky, I hope that one is being enjoyed by the new owner in NY, I had better send an e-mail and see how its going. There was some wicked taper on that one as you can see and very thin behind the edge.

Stefan, thanks man. The two with damascus fittings took ages, but hopefully next time not so bad, I made a jig to hold everything together dry which helped so I could hog it all to shape. I had to be pretty careful with the size of the ferrules I went shorter than usual and ended up reducing the end caps a bit to get the balance. The smaller Petty ended up balancing just infront of the handle, the feather Gyuto on the choil. They do have a really nice feel in the hand, really pleased with how the slight rounding at the front worked for comfort as well. The Gyuto weighed around 230grams the handle making up just over half of that.
O and I used aluminum dowels on these to try and keep the weight down.:biggrin: I have 3 more to make with all the trimming this month, so i'll have another chance to play with it.

The first of a few new ones in the Gallery. :)
320mm Suji. This one in a fine multibar W's pattern in 1080/15n20. The edge is blue paper steel with a layer of nickel in-between.
This is a sturdy knife, but thin behind the edge and tip.
On the spine its roughly 3.25mm.....2.25mm......less than 1mm an inch behind the tip.
Convex Geometry.
I forgotten what the lovely wood is...Mark? Ferrule is blackwood and the fittings are brass. This one has an ally dowel inside on the handle assembly.

Here is Matt's Feather Gyuto. Its another big boy at 285mm blade length.
It is also a sturdy feeling knife around 3mm...2mm....1mm an inch behind the tip.
Very thin at the edge, with convex geometry.
The Handle on this one is some cracking Koa from Burlsource, blackwood and stainless fittings.

The blade is a 300mm Suji Pattern with an extra high tip, perfect for carving in a vivid Feathered W's pattern. The fork is in a random pattern with a twist in the stem.
Hope you like them.:biggrin:

Here are two knives I have made as extra's to add to my website store.
http://www.catchesidecutlery.com/shop.html

A Stainless damascus 155mm Petty. This is an 80 layer per side damascus in 304L and 430 stainless with a random forged ladder effect. The core is high carbon in blue paper 2 @ 62 hrc. To keep the carbon in the core there is a layer of pure Nickel, you can see it is very slightly yellowish compared to the stainless.
The handle is Stabilized Walnut, Mammoth spacer and a bog oak ferrule.

A few more extras finished up to add to my shop shortly. :biggrin:
We have 3 Petty in stainless 14c28n. And one I made as a demonstration to a student. It is mild steel clad 01, it was forged hot dog style, by hot cutting a slot and dropping in the core.
The forging was pretty clean so I managed to etch my small logo on there. The forge finish is buffed up and the bevels are hand rubbed and etched. Nice hazy carbon diffusion line on the weld. Its not really possible to run a proper hardness test on san mai, but hardness is very good. I would say 60 hrc or so. :D

Thanks Fellas, it was done in the traditional way, hot cutting a slot into the mild for the core to go in. It was interesting because for san mai the pieces would be ground perfectly clean and flat before assembling the billet. In this technique you rely on the hot flux to dissolve the oxides, then when you make the weld it must be done very carefully so as not to trap any flux. I'm surprised how clean it came out.:cheffry:

Wow that's a big one, beautiful! Will the damascus pattern affect how the patina develops?

WillC
11-14-2012, 03:19 PM
Good question. It depends on the steels used. In this case the shiny nickel steel is marginally more resistant to patina, so you can get nice blue patina with the shiny bits still shiny. Ultimately they both patina and parts of the pattern start to be visually lost. My personal preference of quick fix to clean damascus up without abrading away the topography of the etch overly is the course side of leather up, stuck to a piece of wood, loaded with blue polishing compound. Very thin leather, like 1mm course side up works very well. This way when ever I give the edge a quick strop I can give the blade faces a quick strop as well if there is browning from onions. The thin leather works especially well and rapidly as it gets into the etch. Don't want to use thick leather as its not so good as a strop then and will round edges.
Very fine micromesh, like 2000+ is good to polish the highs, but the leather works best to get into the etch and clean it without abrading the highs overly.
Regards
Will

First two of this batch of Feather damascus finished. A 230mm Suji and Ted's deep petty. Both customers choice in profile. These are a very fine feather pattern in 01/15n20. So fine there is no hardness difference between the 01 and the 15n20, it all tested as 01 at full hardness. tempered back to 61/62 hrc. There is a thicker band of 01 on the edge of the start billet, so we have more 01 on the edge, creates a very interesting effect with the pattern, hard to photograph though, but still here are some pics.
230mm Suji - Feather damascus - W's damascus ferrule - Fire within endcap and Burl source BO.
Still needs the tip working in and sharpening.

Well, Some pictures of the last little lot all finished. A bit mixed up, but hopefully some nice eye candy. The Dammy is hard to capture on camera after polishing, much clearer in person, hopefully I got a couple to give you an idea.

I can't resist but to post a quick phone pic of these I just finished. A 240mm and a 200mm Gyuto pair. In Stainless clad 01. Handles are Marks super deep red amboyna with cow horn ferrule, faux ivory and red spacers.
Still playing with the finish, then i'll get some proper pics. These pair are no lasers, 3.5mm with a very convex grind and a convex taper, but very thin at the edge and tip. Very sturdy knives, but cut like a charm. These will be available when I'm 100% happy with them.:biggrin:

Then click on the"IMG" line (bottom one) to copy all info.

Lastly, just paste that link here in your post and you should be good.

Thanks Guys,
The ones with mammoth and palm the wood is European curly birch, one dyed one natural. I used the palm grain side on, which gave the effect of the spots, almost like animal foot prints.

The pair with the bolster and pin rather than ferrule were requested as Kramer-esc profiles and handles. Whilst not attempting to be an exact copy of Kramer profile and handle design, this is my take on the brief, handles were requested to be fairly simple.

The construction was hidden tang on them with a buckeye spacer as the Rosewood was not quite wide enough as it turned out, but so nice we had to use it, so I did hidden tang.

Thanks all, maybe I should add these as an option to my website.

Um.... I'm going to say yes to this. I'm digging the ferrule-less handles here. That suji hybrid is looking pretty bad ass, and I'm also liking the profile of the larger gyuto on the far right of the family portrait

WillC
06-06-2013, 06:42 PM
A few of these two in stainless clad.
Blade specs, stainless clad/01 core with nickel. Core 61hrc.
Both are approximately 3.5mm over the heel, full distal taper. Very...very... thin behind the edge.... whilst nicely convex faces.
The finish is hand rubbed to 600 grit and a light polish and etch.

Handles are stabilized dyed maple and birch. With solid nickel silver ferrule, split with a fullered stainless spacer. Stainless endcap with mosaic pin.
The Gyuto is actually a 240mm, (245)
The Suji a 280mm
Both balance on the heel.

I remember when you first joined this forum, your knives were pretty darn awesome back then. In fact, I keep kicking myself that I did not purchase one of your blades before. Your progress is staggering, the two knives you just posted are drop dead sexy. Not only are they unique with their ferrules but your sanmai skills are getting down right nasty (in a good way) :goodpost: ! Keep up the great work. One of your knives will definitely be in my future.

My youngest child took delivery of mine and unwrapped them before i got home.She then decided to test the OOTB edge by stabbing a hole through the couch.I can comfortaby attest that Will's knives can easily cut through 12 cm of PU high density foam.

Cripes, im glad there was nothing more than sofa damage:eek2: You can understand she wants a knife just like her Dad though. When I was wee my dad had a big Axe he would cut trees at the bottom of the garden. I had a tiny axe, I used to follow him around with it, like mini me.:D

Wow, the stainless ladder turned out particulary stunning, maybe your best effort yet.

The knife on slate photo was pretty good as well. I would say it's a big improvement on your usual pics.

I really like how you have the hand written note for each knife you make. Maybe others do it also but yours is the only one I have seen. It's a great way to personalize the knife!
Oh, BTW great looking knife!!

Happy New Year All!, I am officially back from my rest. Have had a productive day in the workshop, got some nearly done ones done.
Four in total, a nice parer, the two stainless damascus D2 core and this one, which I managed to get some half decent shots of.....
This is a bit of a one off, the blade and ferrule damascus was largely made when I went down to Plymouth for that Forgin a Docs. The Dammy is old school cs70/15n20 in a variation of a crushed W's which was quartered a few times sort of like a basket weave. The front slither of damascus and end cap is "Fire within" The wood is Desert Ironwood with thin Nickel silver spacers for added subtle bling.
Making this little gentleman's Petty...:big grin:

The Others will get Photo'd soon, these are for my store.
