DH64 in AEB-L and Desert Ironwood

DH64 made from AEB-L and desert Ironwood I made from this template. I shortened the blade to fit a piece of steel I had lying around. The pins are 304 stainless and the Ironwood is satin finished with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper.



Something katana blade looking about the handle.

KN34-2 Honesuki Western

KN34-2 Honesuki Western (Full Tang)


This is a smaller kitchen knife that has a fairly stiff spine that is useful for boning and general slicing. The bevel is ground on the right side only which makes it a little unusual to operate, but once one gets used to the asymmetry it become very handy.


The blade is shaped and ground from AEB-L 3/32" which is supposed to be 0.09375" but usually a little thicker and measures closer to 0.11" when I check it with the caliper. The handle is made from Inkline Spalted Maple from Woodstabilizer.com and the bolsters are 316 stainless with 316L pins. The pattern for the KN34 is here.

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.
