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.

Hey dude, I was wondering if you’d be willing to let an aspiring knifemaker “intern” under you?

Hi Ryan,

I am flattered that you asked. However, I have a very erratic schedule as I manage a business full time and make knives only when I find some spare time. That may be between 5 AM and 6 AM on Thursday morning if you know what I mean. One day I will retire and make knives all day long. Sigh...one day.
