    Did anybody here end up at HAP40, or SG2, or ZDP189?

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    I decided to "date" different inexpensive used knives and steels for a year before trying to find the perfect bride. Hence the Forgie. I want to learn how different steels feel on the stones.

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    Thank you, everyone, for the generosity of your time and expertise! I love knives. I've had a set of Henkel 4 stars for about 35 yrs. Unfortunately they are still in perfect condition. I really want to dive head first into high carbon and super fine grain steels that are insanely sharpenable.

    That would be cool also but the balance point is about 7/8ths of an inch in front of the handle which is where I like to pinch the blade. Thank you!

    Did it make a big difference for you drsmp? Not just comfort but feel for the last inch of the tip of the blade?

    Looks perfect ! Maybe I will hollow mine out a tad.

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    I would probably try a bench mounted dremel with a 1/2" round stone, stone, slow speed, water drip. But I'm just going to ease/smooth the shoulders of the spine and the back of the heel. Thanks everyone!!!

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    Yes indeed! Got it! Yes, was thinking of putting a very slight belly forward in the back of the heel and then softening the edges of course. Is that called a choil ?

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    Gotchya! I was thinking of using the Dremel to curve the choil (indent) a tad for my middle finger but I'm leaving it alone. Maybe just soften it a bit with the 1K / 2K.

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    Thanks guys! Wasn't sure what grit I would start with. That's a great heads up on finishing with the 2K. I may not have to do anything with the choil. I would probably have gone at that with a Dremel to start but that's also a great heads up on the work there. Could be a little rabbit hole to...

    Thanks man! I will circle back. I will probably just go easy a little bit at a time until it feels right!

    Forgecraft hi carbon 9.75 Chef's Knife

    I love this knife! I find that I'm creeping pretty far forward with my pinch grip when I need extra agility. (balance pt. seems to be about an inch in front of the handle) Has anyone ground in a choil on one of these and/or softened the spine? If so, did you do it to make your pinch grip more...

    Vintage Forgecraft Refurb & Rehandle

    F'n gorgeous! How much metal had to be removed from the heel to get the profile you wanted? 7mm? Did you hollow grind or flat grind the tall bevel?
