The western handle is a little different and challenging also, I kept the lines crisp rather than rounding to match in with the narrow choil, really happy with the results, handle is in ironwood and damascus.


    Uhhh... holy smokes that's INCREDIBLE!

    Really beautiful work! And I wouldn't have even realized about the amount of belly if you hadn't mentioned it... WoW

    Thanks man, yes it was largely corrected, knife got a bit narrower as a result and lost 10mm length, but it came good in the end Would be very cool to repeat the movement intentionally on a slicer or maybe a scimitar ! Was an interesting one for sure, always something to learn ..

    Thanks Chaps thats encouraging ha ha Andrey, I need a manicure... yes will be at the pricey end but not as much as the full composite pieces as there is less damascus...will price it up next week. Blade in the region of £40/cm plus handle time/materials.

    Some of you will have seen my Instagram Work in progress on the Honyaki knives I've been making. catcheside_cutlery

    Here are some finished shots of the Wa versions. I wanted to see if I could be happy with a simple very neatly done 400grit finish on these enhanced beneath the hamon with a light etch natural grit to highlight the beautiful activity. Combined with simple wa handles I think I achieved a very practical usable and easy to maintain Honyaki version, with a finish I'm really happy with, the scratch pattern clear and deliberate and the hamon activity still shows beautifully as you move it in the light I have an integral version near complete coming next. Would be interested to hear what people think. Im going to try an even more simple polish next with silicon carbide grit to polish below the hamon, then polishing down from the spine and overlapping with WA aluminium oxide powder, probably no etch even required then.

    Little 175mm Petty





    245mm Gyuto











    In day light......




    Quite a laser the Petty is...

    Aw thanks guys, the steel is sc125 by the way, not dissimilar to White 1, certainly a little more user friendly both for heat treatment and in a little higher toughness. Its a dream to forge too, The edge has that gorgeous buttery feeling to the cut you get with white 1 ...and nice on the stones.
