    I've had a long weekend of work, the composite cleaver pics will have vanished, I am organizing them into a single WIP.

    As it happens I forged out your Feather lump today
    Here is some progress on Robin's Feather Gyuto.

    Blade carefully forged out and tapered.

    There is another lump there too enough for a 240-250 Gyuto, hint hint nudge nudge.
    Rough forged profile

    After a bit of a trim, pretty close to the template, let me know if you want any final tweaks, it can stand a little more drawing out so there will be a little wiggle room.

    Also, what do you think?

    And if there is too much material, you could always make it longer right?

    I think it feels good, the taper is currently 4mm to 2mm. It is pickling clean overnight so i'll give it one more light run under the hammer to true the taper and stretch it a couple of mm so we have enough length to play with for final tweaks, Best to leave these complex patterns a bit thicker before grinding down to near final taper, then heat treatment, regrinding again after HT aiming for around 3mm 2mm 1mm on the spine. Taper wise, sound good?
    2 for one...mmmmmm.... cheeky monkey i need to sell the other bit...I have holes in all my trousers
    I do like this profile though, If you don't mind I may do the other bit the same profile, there will be subtle differences in the pattern from the forging process so you can then have the pick of either, I'll finish and put the other for sale.
    Unless someone wants to jump in and commission the extra bit for something, this material takes a LONG time to produce so it would be a good cue jump.

    On its way my friend, I gave it a loving final hone and packaged it up. I'll post it in the morning.
