But wow, 2.5mm thickness convexed to a zero edge. The edge doesn't get too frail when it gets so thin? Do you have to go absurdly slow on the grinder (or even by hand) when you get close to thickness? Even on slowest setting on the KMG it seems like steel can still get very hot with thin cross sections.
Thanks for directing me to this forum
Looks like I may have found a new eCave
Pattern and control is spectacular
Look forward to seeing this one completed
I love the simple, dark handle.
The skill that goes into making that pattern always impressed me, but astetically i never got that excited because its difficult to ballance a pattern like that with the rest of the materials, so most times the end result is too busy. However, that knife (astetically) is perhaps the closest to (imo) a perfectly balaced and executed example as I've ever seen. Great choice on the bolster and handle material, proportions, angles, etc.
