Thanks for the welcome, fellas. I started out in the outdoor market and have only been doing kitchen blades for about 2 years. A Gentleman from my Church recommended the forum. His name is Mike but I don't know what his screen name is.
I'll try to toss up a pick. It's one of my 10.5" chef's blades, .110" stock CPM 4V RC 60, layered and stabilized oak handle, loveless bolts. I do an angled plunge on my kitchen knives. I do this for a couple reasons. First is to allow a forward handle extension, this allows for more grip options and IMO a more secure pinch grip and ability to choke up. The other reason is to take the grind off the back edge of the blade for superior slicing.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice work! The only issue I have with the forward angle on handles like that is it makes it necessary to use odd angles to sharpen the entire edge without hitting the handle. At least for me anyway. lol It isn't anything that can't be worked around though, as I have a knife I have to watch the handle on already anyway. ;)

Hey DM, I did encounter that issue but with the handle starting about .5" up on the blade it doesn't get in the way. If you do the trig on the blade the grind is right about 7-10 degrees, so it's pretty thin. The only recommendation i make for sharpening is that folks don't use a device with a set angle. Freehand stone or strop.

Thank you very much Jeff!

I do not know if it is true to share my website here or if i could write the website name on my signature line. So you can check out the available woods.

I have many beautiful burl and high figured Turkish walnut knife blocks on my website.

Sincerely
Onur
