Hey guys another chef knife in the books.
This one is 15" overall with a 10" blade. Made from 1/16" 440c and tempered to around 62rc. It stands 2-1/8" tall at the heel and is ground to 0.01 at the edge before sharpening. The handle material is some great purple dyed stabilized maple burl with black/glitter cast resin secured with 3 mosaic pins.
Thanks for looking

i really like that the belly is all forward and the last 1/2 to the heel is flat for push cutting and chopping. I find that makes a knife so much more effective. I like to rock and push and without the flat I end up with a bunch of accordion-ed veggies which irritates me to no end.

Thanks John this and the damascus one from last week are my first try at chef knives. I'll say one thing, after grinding out these long tall blades my usual hunters and skinners will be a breeze lol ;-)
