    Thanks folks the spin tapers and the blade is a double bevel I can not say what the thickness was at the right where it met the bolster. the knife is very light for a full tang i riddled the tang with 1/4" holes to lighten it as well as tapering it.

    A gorgeous knife that just begs to be used. I really like the rounded integral bolsters and curve leading into them. Great handle shape, too.

    Very nice work! Awesome Damascus and I like the smooth transition between the bolster and blade.

    Dave, Another winner. I find your chef knives to be beautiful yet very functional at the same time. Looks to be comfortable in the hand.

    Thanks for sharing

    See you in Seattle pal

    Thanks folks Jeff I like making them and I am finely getting good at sharping them using water stones it takes practice but my true love is the bowie knife and still where most of my knife time goes. Bing thank you and it does feel good in the hand
  14. I'll second that! The transition really caught my eye. Great work!
