KN27 Chef's Knife in Yellow Birch and AEB-L

This one kind of snuck through the cracks as I had to get it out and didn't document all of the build.
It's chef's knife made from 0.130" AEB-L with 416 stainless steel bolster and flame yellow birch scales. The blade is 7" and 2" deep.
 Working the edge on the 5000 grit water stone.



I used the KN27 template and lengthened the handle by about 1/4".

I am keeping very busy right now with my hydraulic press project. I hope to be making some Damascus in the near future.

Cheers,
