Thread: Custom Damascus Chef knife set.

  1. #1

    Custom Damascus Chef knife set.

    Hey guys, Im super stoked about this set.. There just awesome all the way around! These will get the full treatment. Im almsot done, still need to add some final touches and the finished edges. This set will also come with a sweet custom carry set up. More pics and all the specs to follow.

    Anyways, I figured I would post some pics and see what you guys think of them so far.

    This started out as a 3 piece set. I had enough damascus to turn it into a 4 piece set for my customer.. Thats just what I did.. So hes getting a bonus paring knife.. The damascus pattern is one of Jr's latest creations. We call it Reverb. These have Ironwood burl handles and copper hardware..

    Ill post a few in progress pics from rough profile, to bevels ground, then one after finish sanding of the grinds and etched. And finally a few of them at the point they are now.






















    Thanks for looking and as always comments and critiques welcomed.

    Absolutely stunning. That chef/gyuto is a monster!

    Thanks Tim.. The Gyuto is not as big as you might think. Measuring about 15" Overall. With a 257mm blade, tip to heel. 55mm high at the heel.. And its 2.4mm thick at spine above the heel. Actually quite thin for a knife this size. The balance point on this one is at the front H of my makers mark

    I guess next to the smaller paring knife it looks HUGE!!

    I love them. Really I do. I would love to see those with a few years of patina on them.

    I remember loving your work on KF and when you came here and decided to make more appropriate kitchen knife stuff, I was pumped. Honestly, this is exactly the kind of work I was hoping for. As artistic as possible while still looking like a hard-use tool. Brilliant work.

    Superb Randy! I like the Kiritsuke tip on the Gyuto...

    The lanyard setting is very nice! are those to hang them?
