8 knives down, 6 to go. 5 carbon and 1 in s35vn. Have a new quench tank coming soon, that I ordered 3 weeks ago, which will help redoing the carbons. For those of you with carbons and western handles, I'll be contacting you shortly to go over handle material options again, as I can't get what's on there off (tells me what I'm doing is solid, though adds an extra complication right now). Some long days ahead of me right now trying to get back on track, but feel good about where things are right now. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and feedback.

Here's another 240mm chef's in 26c3. There's so much more going on with the hamon that I couldn't capture in a picture, but I think it looks great. Handle is Ironwood Burl with buffalo horn ferrule and nickel/silver spacer. Steel is hardened to ~65hrc.

That is a beautiful knife all the way around! And I bet that handle feels great in the hand. How thick was the steel you started out with?

I would be interested as well! This was an absolute joy to see the whole process fleshed out as well! I'm following @The Edge now to make sure I catch any more interesting posts or group buys 😊
I will totally vouch for the quality and value of Taylor's work. Ive been meaning to post a review of my knife from him, which I'll try to get around to soon. I'll just say for now that it's very enjoyable to use and still feels to me like a steal for what I got.
