I forged this chef knife from O1 steel and made the handle from African mahogany. Did the heat treatment myself in the forge and kitchen oven. I was aiming to make a santoku, but the edge came out a bit too curvy. Still, I like the shape. The pointy tip is useful for opening food packaging. My sister forged one at the same time, though finishing hers is still in progress.
Well, I am getting better with each knife. This billet started as 11 layers of 1095, 1084 and 15n20. Folded to total of 66 layers and did my best to create ladder pattern. Here is where I am at - I etched to see pattern and am happy so far. Needs further finishing, then will re-etch and do scales
