    There are two knives in this batch that will be sent out for pass around. I will have a separate thread for it.

    Closing Order List

    I won't be taking any new orders until after Christmas. I am aiming to deliver all placed orders in time for Christmas.

    Thanks,

    WIP - The First Batch

    I cut steel from a sheet with an angle grinder, than use a hand-held bandsaw secured in a vice to cut the blanks to a rough shape, and finally profile them on a grinder. I am going to use blanks in the pictures below as templates (much more convenient than using paper). I won't form machi on these.

    It looks like I will spend the whole week cutting, profiling, and heat treating.

    I measure the length on the edge, so 275mm is actually 290mm gyuto tip to handle.

    Yes it is. In the future, I am going to consider water-jet or laser cutting, but for now, I am stuck with a sheet of 52100 and a good chunk of W2.

    Good to see things coming along. Cutting knives out is a lot of work... I tried once.

    Marko, wouldn't it be easier and a lot quicker to use a plasma cutter? would that effect the steel in anyway? I can't imagine they would cost that much to buy and they don't take up that much space. It would have to be cheaper than the initial set up of a water jet job.

    I don't own a plasma cutter, but once the profiles are finalized, it makes sense to have them waterjet cut, to cut down on a lengthy step in the process.
