    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.

    They are originally marking knives for woodworking, but you can use them for all knife realted cutting actions :)

    Great for boxes, and the plastic ties on boxes and stacks of aprons.

    Almost done with these two chef knives in Damasteel. Rather happy with how the handles turned out!

    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.

    The pattern is Odin's eye. In the begining of the process I had my doubts if the pattern would look good on a larger piece, but result after final etch was just awesome :)

    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
