    I finally finished the two chef knives. They are both D2 with stainless steel and diamond wood. I went with scotchbrite belt satin finish.

    Thanks grayzer. I hit submit thread instead of preview. I have to stop posting new threads with my phone. The blades are right around 9 inches. I will be delivering the black one tomorrow and the lighter one is mine. This is my first sale.

    Looks great Icho they turned out great!!! I've been tossing the idea around for a while on a full set build but man that would take some time. But it will happen eventually seeing all these chef knives the thoughts intriguin ;)

    Just realized your first full from scratch build was for the last KITH. You are really making some progress man. Not that the first one wasn't good, that's not what I mean at all, just that you really killed these ones with less than a year in.

    Thanks guys. They cut real nice too. I went to the grocery store to buy a roast just so I can test them out. A friend at work bought it as a gift.

    I will have a complete set sooner or later. I figure I'll make a different knife for the kitchen every once in a while till I have a full set.

    Thanks Grayzer. Before the first kith I bought a few finished blades to practice on. They are still sitting in a box. I used them to test my home made etcher. I used the handle areas so that they would get covered up if I ever finish them.

    They look great Icho! How thick are they at the spine?

    I didn't know if i'd like it but I think I do. I realized there are kind of 2 different "effects" you can get with it. If you put the blade flat against the belt with the platen behind it you get straight line scratch pattern then I tried to use the top idler wheel so there is not full contact and moved the blade up and down. The finish on these knives is the second way.
