    I got a chance to get to the grinder between lawn mowings this weekend.

    Here's my next two kitchen knives. They will be 8" blade, a tiny bit under 13" OAL. AEB-L 0.130" stock.

    I've got some 416SS and stabilized Amboyna burl lined up for the first one. Still deciding on the second one.

    Stay tuned here for more pics as I go.

    Funny: One is for a guy who is giving it to his girlfriend as a gift. He wasn't 100% sure if he wanted it sharpened or not!

    Nice Dan. How do you find the AEB-L to work with? I got some a few weeks ago but haven't had time to make any thing from it yet.

    I really like AEB-L. My new favourite steel. It doesn't seem to come in very thick pieces, but 1/8" is pretty common and there is zero mill scale on it so you get to keep the whole 1/8"

    Here are the twins. Two cups of coffee, four full sheets of sand paper and a 1/4 bottle of windex later.

    I still have to shape the handle area a little and drill the holes, but the bulk of the work is done on the blades.

    The twins are ready for the oven.

    But before I fire of the elements, I want to get these two clip-point brothers in as well. One's a 9" and one's a 7/12". Same basic shape.

    After some advice from Ray Rogers, I modified the area around the ricasso to ensure that the bolster doesn't interfere with the cutting edge and future sharpenings.

    New shape is like this:

    The bolster will come down about 3/4 of the way and leave the last 1/4 exposed.
