New Years Resolution

Fri Mar 07, 2014 3:03 pm

I am going to throw this out there hoping you all hold me accountable as well as give comments criticism, or maybe just watch the progress.

I have two sets of Gyuto/Nakiri combos I am aiming to finish this year. One in 52100 and another in 154-CM. I also have another lone 52100 Gyuto profiled. I will post the drawings and selected materials up this weekend. I am going to go all out on these, Sayas and all. Stay Tuned...

It will have a western shaped handle with bog oak frame and amboyna scales. The steel is stainless clad w-2

I will also be getting the 154CM set heat treated although probably not finished by end of year

The 52100 stuff along with about 20 other various high carbon blades will probably get heat treated in January. Once I have stuff heat treated I can finish it up pretty quick.
