    Cheers my dear. Yes in the very start I had a 3/2/1 grind on taper. Usually forged pieces were just over 3mm. Whilst at the moment I have stuck with 3mm stock for mono knives. The damascus and san mai pieces have gone to a shade under 4mm over the year. This as a result of my own testing and customer requests for a firmer knife, or just to do my thing which has tended to be a thicker knife with more convex geometry but so very fine at the edge.

    Want to say something funny, witty and sarcastic too downplay the tremendous talent you're showing us here. But it's too early still. So, meh...

    And I'm still saving my coin to get another knife from you!

    You know you want another . Some little ones coming up in stainless damascus, and some big ones....

    Her big ones forge tapered, profiles tweaked , pretty much ready for HT

    Little ones rough profiled wanting a bit more forge tapering prior to HT.


    Thats not a knife mate.....


    Little ones after a bit more forging.



    All got HT'd today also and got the stainless damascus for fittings drawn out and left to pickle clean too

    Playing around with the first two, (Smallest) Parers getting the dimension and feel of the handle correct........

    100mm one next to an icle 70mm one.

    Handle needs and endcap and thinning down..

    I ended up narrowing down at the choil as well to make it comfortable.

    Endcap on, now just over 9cm handle and slimmed down.


    Much better


    Other smaller ones handle done in the same way.
