    My Next Knife Project

    When my first knife warped during heat treating Hoss told me to do my grinding after HT, and I had a hard time with the concept because it was hard enough to shape the blade when it was soft. He was, of course, correct and this second one got the lions share of the grinding after HT, and it seemed to go more easily than when in the annealed state. Go figger, some people you should just believe.
    I did still get some warp, though, and I clamped the blade to a rusty old file with an old saw blade for a shim under the tip when tempering, and it came out nice and straight!
    I don't know what you would call this style of blade, though.

    Very nice job, where did you get your handle?

    P.S.
    Kiritsuke(ish) maybe?

    I made the handle, maple burl and cocobolo. I'm not finished with the finish yet!

    This would be called kiritsuke-shaped gyuto. Nice looking knife.

    OOOps! That was Devin, not Hoss, that advised grinding after HT!

    Geeze, I gotta go to bed. It was Devin. My sleeping meds are working, even if my brain isn't!

    Wait a minute. Is this like Clark Kent and Superman? Has anyone seen them both in the same room at the same time?
