    Trying a single bevel, looking for iput and suggestions.

    Heres one that started out to be a double bevel gyuto, But the stock was pretty thick. And I have wanted to try a hybrid single bevel deign/grind .. So this was a perfect candidate.

    Im thinking I may finish this blade and do a pass around with it to get some feedback about how the grind functions etc. I could go into details about how I ground it and why. But wont. Here are a few photos, Im interested to hear what you all think.

    I still have about 4 to 8 hrs of work on the sharpening stones B4 it will be close to ready for a handle. But Im working on it a little here and there untill im happy with the grinds. I worked for about 2 more hours on it after taking these photos and got the faces cleaned up pretty good with the 1200k King.

    Thanks for looking and for any comments good or bad about what I have so far.

    Call it knife of glory. Drill five large holes through the blade along the spine and call em "gloryholes".
    Tell people the holes will increase speed and food release. sell it on blade forums. People there will go nuts

    But seriously, I'm curious to see the backside. Is it just flat?

    It looks like Frank Lloyd Wright falling water.

    Randy,

    Is the back flat or have you ground a convexity that doesn't show in the pictures?

    It should be an interesting knife to use. How thick is the spine?

    It reminds me of the single side ground blades Tsil Censor of TC Blades (http://www.tcblades.com) makes. His are wa-handled, though.

    I was about to say the same thing, Rick. Looks very similar to a TC blades type knife.

    Maybe we could talk Randy into making a laser? Remember the one Salty snapped up? I think the spine was like 1.6mm at the heel.
