    Stainless Damascus Kitchen Knives

    Quick Mini Peak at these before they get sent off to their Owners, (These are commissions and spoken for).

    These are a 180mm and 240mm Gyuto, In Random and Ladder stainless damascus clad....Stainless damascus fittings with Solid Nickel spacers silver Soldered to the damascus. The Big one is dressed in Gidgee and the 180mm in Bog Oak Split with green Maple.

    The core material is carbon, 1.2442 in all its splendour @ 65hrc.

    Will add some pictures of the grinds after I've fixed the handles on and given them a final edge.













    Comments are always appreciated, thanks

    Thanks Mate, I would have to say the 240 has turned out splendid too, though the ladder in san mai is a tough one to achieve well, so I'm pleased with that too
    The thick pure nickel spacers are a bit of a one off as well as I don't normally find pure nickel in that thickness, the price of nickel here is very high in the uk close to that of Silver.

    Few detail shots after they were sharpened...



    Thinning bevel set at about 7-8 degrees per side for customer to follow, you will see on the heel shot it is a nice continuation of the convexity, can be with microlevel or not.....











    I dont Change this grind now, just concentrate on making it consistent throughout the range. I use more and more stone techniques now in the final edge shaping and into the edge .....you can only go so thin on belts............

    And off they go....
