    Ok still have some more handle profiling to do yet, just roughed it in real fast to see how i liked it. So far, so good! In this oic you can see the scratch. Going to see if i can get it out with some scotchbrite before i put the patina on it.


    Hopefully you guys like it....Next one will be a lot better.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Ok it is as finished as i could get it in the time allowed. Got the scrathes out almost completely, patina turned out pretty cool also. Turned out pretty good for my first one. Well...at least I think so lol.



    Already planning the next one. With a nikiri, petty and sujihiki to match

    I like the beveled front edge on the bolster/ferrule.

    Thanks! I did that knife in a total time of 10 hours....Including HT. Now that i have had some fun making a kitchen knife...I will probably make a few more. I am going to try and have a petty finished to take with me to Del's this weekend.

    Thanks

    Looks great for a first knife! I'm not sold on the dropped heal, I don't think it'll help that much when rocking, but admittedly it's just speculation.

    The dropped heel was a mistake lol. I was trying to get the scratches out in the plunge area and burned the heel a touch to thin lol. When i was trying to sharpen it, it flexed and bent so i just ground it off and resharpened it. It was only 1/2 in long so i don't think it will affect performance much, if any at all. So it was a mistake....I will happily admit it. I just chalk it up to a learning experience.

    Thanks
    Mike
