As many of you know, this past year I started working on producing my own blades to go along with the handles and sayas that I have been making for a few years. I am in the final stages of testing and am almost ready to start selling them. All the blades are made from 52100 carbon steel and are heat treated in house. The blades are testing out at 62 HRC and have survived cutting a 16 penny nail without chipping the blade and will bend 90 degrees and return straight without and cracking. The CKTG community has been very good to me over the years and I will be offering the finished blades here first. Anyway, here are some recent pics.


These blades are fully hardened and tempered using a recipe developed by Ed Fowler.

These are fully ground and polished to about 80 percent, next will be the handles, then to the stones for sharpening and then final polish.

Two of the blades that have been sent out for testing with Chef John in New Jersey....a 150mm & 240mm.

Thanks for looking.
