KN58-4 Chef's Knife in CPMS35VN and Spalted Maple

This is an 8" chef's knife that I shaped from a piece of Cruicible's S35VN cutlery steel. The bolsters are 416 stainless and the pins are black paper Micarta and a copper and brass mosaic for the center position. Liners are 3/32" black vulcanized fibre. I took these photos before setting the cutting edge which is at  17 degrees.

Top Notch Burl

I wanted to thank Rob from Rich's Point Knives  for sending me some absolutely amazing pieces of stabilized wood including this Amboyna burl. Rob does his own stabilizing and this piece is among the best I've worked with.

Overall length is 8.5" and the blade is 3.75" of cutting edge. The sheath is dyed to approximate the ironwood tones.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by over the past five years. I started this humble blog in 2013 to document my knifemaking journey and it has sort of taken on a life of its own.
