This chef knife started life as a piece of 52100 bar stock that I hand-forged to shape and refined through grinding. The blade was then heat-treated and hand-sanded to an easy to maintain satin finish. I then stabilized some reclaimed walnut and cherry with acrylic resin, attached it to the blade and shaped it into an ergonomic handle. The handle then received a hand-rubbed tung oil finish that was allowed to cure for 30 days. The knife was then sharpened to a razors edge and the handle and blade were hand-polished with a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax. Every step of this process was completed in my workshop, creating a one of a kind, hand-forged knife.
