    Thread for Works in progress.

    First is a 250mm damasteel gyuto. The blade was etched fresh off the belts before hand finishing. The choil shot is before sharpening. The photo in the bushes is prior to final etching.

    It looks great and the choil shot looks crazy thin. It does leave me wondering about the tip though, is this the finished form?

    No. I leave it meaty through grinding and then shape it at the end. Can make it a gyuto tip or kiritsuki tip.

    It is what I thought, but kept looking at the original post in case I was missing something. Great pattern.

    In progress, 255mm Randy Haas tsunami pattern damascus gyuto. On of my favorite handle configurations with abalone, G10, and carbon fiber bolsters. An insane amount of hand labor and sanding into the handle. The abalone material is extremely finicky. Currently at 120 grit on the handle.

    That's gorgeous... Beautiful lines on that knife from the handle to blade profile. Plus, I can only imagine the nightmare shaping both that abalone and carbon fiber. Do you use a full face respirator?

    A bunch of new blades. Two XHP 440mm sujiki/brisket/maguro, three 330mm sujiki, two 250mm gyuto. And two small edc blades in stainless San mai CPM 10V blades which will be really good for opening all my Amazon packages!

    In XHP (from right) my version of the Serbian 180mm long and 100mm tall cleaver (this one will be a pain to grind thin), four 250mm gyutos. And one 220mm CPM 20CV gyuto.

    Handles on two more. The maple burl is on a 250mm damasteel Blade and the kirinite is on a 170mm bird and trout filet. Fresh off the belts. Now for hand sanding.
