    My apologies for the long absence. Here is my most recent completion. A 270mm suji made from 52100, bloodwood and bocote. I am going to set the bevel later tonight and ship it to a friend tomorrow morning.

    Here is a line knife I made for myself. 165mm, 52100 carbon steel at 61hrc and a Bloodwood handle. I am very happy with how this knife turned out.

    Two santokus for a friend of mine.

    Top: 1095 carbon steel 59hrc with Malachite and Bloodwood handle.

    Bottom: 52100 carbon steel 61hrc with Bubinga handle and Rhodonite ferrule.

    She specially requested these handles.

    What is the difference in these steels and how is the edge retention hold up?

    Just an Update

    I am trading a knife for some professional photography work so hopefully I will be able to get some good pictures to show you guys. I also recently acquired a bandsaw so you will start seeing some sayas soon too.

    Best wishes,
    Mike

    They are both carbon steels, but the 52100 has better edge retention and is less reactive. They both take great edges, and I am happy using either. I am sure someone else can answer your question more fully.
