Can't believe I haven't posted in so long! It hasn't been for lack of new things coming out of the shop, though.
Lets start with the latest...
This is a 6" Santoku style chef's knife.
I made the steel from 1095 (high carbon, known for holding a fine edge) and 15n20 (a very tough light-colored steel) folded to 240 layers.
The handle is brass and Macassar ebony.
