Not exactly kitchen related, I don’t know how usefull Kiridashis are for cooking. But these three are what I’m working on right now.

Work in progress. Damasteel chef knives fresh of the belt grinder and ready for hand polish. Full flat grind, going from 3,25mm to 0,1mm before sharpening

Here is my latest finished chef knife. An 16 cm Nakiri in Damasteel and stabilized maple burl. The handle turned out really great! I wasn't certain that a blue handle would look good but the client insisted on one.

Yeah it looks great. I like the blue handle too. I have some Vinland pattern coming soon for myself, and I'd like to try Grosserosen at some point..

i gotta say you really make that damasteel pop. i think it has to do with you not taking any shortcuts. the finish of those blades look really good. one of the best i've seen actually. light years away from most japanese "damascus".

good work!

Beautiful. I'm working on a dagger in Vinland pattern right now. What grit do you sand to before etching? I went to 1200, way more than I usually would for damascus.

I usually sand to 800-1200 grit but after that i polish the piece on four different buffring wheels with compounds going from 6,5 micron down to 0,1 micron. This renovera all scratches from sandning and leaves a perfect mirror polish before etching
