Thread: Heavy Chef's Knife - A New Project

  1. #81
    I am not going to make another knife in this geometry until I get feedback from Huw. I will try a couple of other geometries for heavy chefs in the mean time. Kato geometry is next.

    This one is almost done. Balance point right above the heel. Pics tomorrow.

    Looking good, the shinogi isn't as pronounced as I was expecting, is that just the pictures?

    That is really sexy. I hope I get a chance to take it for a spin. I just brought my Heiji back to work today after finally getting some time to sharpen the backlog. I started blending up at the tip as per the idea that I think Huw put forward and it worked pretty well today. I need to play with it some more.

    It's the finish. It's much easier to finish the whole blade with sand paper than have the blade up to shinogi line finished on stones. The basic "sword grind" geometry is there (up to about 8cm from the tip, then it's convex) and the owner could put the knife on the stones and make it Heiji-like if he wants.

    This is a prototype, so I don't want to spend too much time on it, but as I said, the geometry is there.

    Also, that line is there, it is only really visible at the heel. I think that may just be the photo though.

    Thanks folks!

    Now, I need to borrow a heavy Mizuno from somebody.

    Lol I would offer mine, but it was thinned recently by Dave. Which would be counter productive for your purposes. Also it's a hontanren which I think it thinner than what you are looking for.
