    7inch santoku in 52100 61hrc with a Marblewood and Bubinga handle.

    This is the first knife I made for a paying customer. I'm pretty excited.

    Why thank you. I was hoping someone else thought it was cool too.

    How was grinding 52100 compared to 1095?

    I'm liking the grating you use as a backdrop. Knives are pretty cool as well.

    52100 is much more resistant to anything I try to do to it than 1095. It requires at least twice as many abrasives too. Sand paper, belts, cutting disks, etc. We shall see if the added edge retention is worth the extra effort at this point.

    Thanks Daveb, going outside is the only way I can get a decent shot with my phone.

    Mysterious ferrules that I got in a grab bag with Bubinga as the main handle material. Also 52100

    Sorry for the poor quality pics. I am not sure why the ferrules on the steak knives look grey in this picture.
