    First Post / Beginner Question(s)

    Hello Kitchen Knife Forums! While searching for information I found you guys. Browsed the forums, saw some good posts, & decided to join. I'm no professional, but I do have an interest in fine cutlery and enjoy cooking at home for myself & the family.

    Lately I have considered buying a custom personal knife. I found a Damascus chef's knife, but it is sold with a 'blunt' edge (no sharp edge). The materials used are 1085 & 15N20. The amount of layering is 'more than 200.' HRC is 48 to 50. Blade length is 25.5 cm. Full Tang. How much could taking a blunt knife to a professional for sharpening cost?

    Nice to meet you all & thanks in advance!

    It has the profile of a chef knife with no sort of bolster that meets the cutting edge.

    Yeah, you could call it a kitchen knife.

    That hrc sounds awfully low, should be about 10 pts higher or so. There's some great custom makers that are members here might want to talk to them.

    Your right about that, 48-50 is low. With proper care I think I could maintain it's edge. To me, the knife's design is unique among other customs I have seen. There is a sashimi knife with a HRC of 60 I'm looking at also...
