Im not 100% sure about what your asking. I can try and explain the grinds on this one.
The blade has a nice taper. from around 3mm down to about 1 mm where the tip starts to drop. On the R hand side there is a flat grind. like a chisel grind. after this was as flat as I could make it on the stones. I then worked the edge area more. so about 1/3 of the bevel closest to the edge has a very slight steeper angle then the primary grinds. On the Left side. there is a concave or hollow grind. that is the full height of the blade from the spine to the edge. this is only seen on the heel shot down near the edge. Because of the tang. You can see where this grind starts on the photo of the left side. Combined. these grinds make the edge angles amazingly steep. . I then sharpened the blade further with a very slight micro bevel at the edge to aid a little is the edge stability. . and de bured by laying the knife flat on a 8K stone. I dont know the technical term or Japanese term for this type of edge. Or is there even is one. sry., What I do know is the edge is just stupid sharp! and the knife is going to cut well ad will be amazing for some cutting tasks and not as good or not able to be used at all for others. :)
Sry to get all long winded. If I KNEW all the proper terms I could of just answered Yes or No. lol Such is life. Im learning new suff and having a BLAST. and to me thats what its all about!
The knife will be going to a friend and member here and I am sure he will be giving us a update once he has it and has had a chance both to use and sharpen it.
OK so as long as I am typing. I am gona tell ya about the handle on this one. Because it worthy!! We selected some super figured Musk Ox horn for the main part of the handle and went with a Malachite Ferrule. And I will decide on the spacers when making the knife. Its a VERY unique combination of materials that I have not seen it on any other knife EVER! Yet I can already tell ya. Its gona be HOT!
Those are darn sexy!
That is one lucky owner... <grin>
Leaves me wordless:O
Folder Friday! Here are 2 I just finished up!
Both have Tribal pattern HHH Damascus with African Black wood bolsters. One is Snake wood. and the other is Stabilized birch burl. Both are EPIC and no matter how nice then look here in the photos. They are Sooo much better in person! The liners are titanium and fully file worked 360* around and the thumb studs are inlayed with the wood used for the handles. Snake wood and Birch.
Both are available. Message me or email for pricing or info.
Thanks and God Bless!
Its been a while but I figured I would share a couple images of 2 Im working on this week.
First up. a Feather 240mm gyuto. and second a San Mai 240mm gyuto.
Thinning out a PrepMonster For Chef Large. Its a German blade that has been worked on a few times over the years. And I put it on a diet and fixed the edge profile. This think was thicker then a butter knife behind the edge when I started on her.
Here it is B4 adding the edge bevels.
Shes a bit skinnier. And the edge profile s now back to where it should be. :) Ill hand deliver this one to ya this weekend!
Just received the Greman prep monster. All I can say is WOO HOO!!! Randy did a spectacular job of thinning and reprofiling this beast. It is now ready for many more years of service. Thank you Randy Haas...... YOU RULE!!! :plus1:
