I Forge Iron

275-layer laddered chef's knife


Recommended Posts

I just finished this one up this week.  Here are the particulars:

Nominally 275 layers of 1095 and 15N20

8" blade, 13" OAL

2" high over the heel, 0.10" thick at the spine tapering down to a point over the last 3rd of the length

Full flat ground to 0.010" thick at the edge before sharpening.

Soldered brass bolsters with hidden pins

Stabilized Box Elder burl scales held on with epoxy and cutler's rivets.

Thanks for looking :)

Thanks guys :) 

This is about as good as I can do right now, and I am pretty proud of this one.  However, I also realize it is pretty "mid-grade" compared to what a lot of people are doing now.  There are makers that are really inspiring me to push the both the quality and design aspects of my knives.   I've only been at this 4 or 5 years, and probably only have 25 knives under my belt so I am very much a rookie.  I have a lot to learn, and a pretty steep hill to climb yet. 

I'm probably going to start squashing some W's and playing with some mosaics soon.  We'll see how that goes :)
