    Gyuto-suji WIP

    Hello All,
    I'll be posting work in progress pics of a custom gyuto for a forum member. Comments and questions welcome.

    Here is the design that was decided upon, basically, I increased the heel height and shortened the blade of my current suji design.



    I simply adhered my template to the steel.



    Grinding the heel cut-out, oat powered.



    Profile almost complete, just need to clean up the neck/machi for a clean face when putting the handle on.

    Looks good so far. I'm tempted to do a project with you too, but I haven't stepped up to request it.

    I'm sure they're around somewhere.

    Not to much to look at, but very important, the knife got heat treated and is ready for more grinding.

    Moving up in grit - here it is at 120:




    The blade at 400 grit and just got the logo etched.




    Time for hand finishing!

    The reconstituted stone for the spacers FINALLY arrived yesterday. The WIP continues.

    Buckeye burl is ready to be cut up.


    Two red spacers sandwiched by black G10.


    The spacer set on the end along with the buckeye will get a dowel. Even though the slow cure epoxy is extremely strong having a dowel will increase the shear strength exponentially.


    High tech glue up fixture. This actually does a great job, it hold everything in place but isn't so tight that the epoxy squeezes out.
