    Very nice Cal! The big chef must have about a 10" blade? I was also wondering if you made it asymmetrical. The grind on the right side looks to be more prominent.

    We always love seeing what you've been up to.

    Dan the one side if flat, zero grind, and the other side is fully ground to an edge of about 0.020 then sharpened.
    Try it, it's the only way to make kitchen knife, a buddy of mine did a filleting knife that way and it sure takes the
    shin off of a fillet in a hurray.
    The only trouble it if you are a left handed user the blade has to be make opposite to what I have shown here. Only ever had to make one left handed kitchen knife.

    Awesome. Yes, most of the kitchen knives I have made recently were right bias. Yes, it's easier to stand in front of the grinder and do right-handed movements to make a right-handed knife. Never had a request for a leftie yet.

    Wow those look fantastic. I have a quick question regarding your Damascus, does it have any Nickel in it? if so where did you get it from? I'm thinking of trying to create a simple 5 layer San Mai with nickel between 4140 and an 01 core (I have the 4140 and 01 laying around). Does anyone have experience with this kind of construction?

    Yes one of the steels I use is 15N20 which contains 2% nickel.
    I can't comment on the 4140 I have never tried to forge it and do not recall seeing anyone ever use it.

    Thanks Forge, I will give it a try and let you know how it turns out. I will try to get some 15n20 to sandwich between the O1 and the 4140. Should be interesting.
