S35VN Filleting knife

Discussion in 'Tristone Bladesmithing' started by Chadd Smith, Feb 10, 2016.

  1. G'day,

    Below is a filleting knife a previous customer ordered to match his Niolox Gyuto he bought at the Adelaide knife show.

    Blade, 180mm long 59/60HRC
    800 grit satin finish.
    right handed "Dwestern" handle to match his D shaped Gyuto handle
    Brigalow burl and African Blackwood spacers.
    800 grit satin finish.

    It is always fun to try something new and I must say I am happy with how this turned out for a first attempt. I guess if I wasn't happy the picture would not be up here :D

    Thanks for looking.

    That's really quite beautiful. I'd be a tad worried about sliding up while in use especially when covered in animal (no guard, no choil to catch the hand, smooth handle tapering into the blade.)

  3. Me too, that is why I put a hook on the rear of the handle, it was the only concession I was able to have, initially he wanted just a standard D handle as he wanted it to be exactly the same.

    I brought up all these points with the customer, however sliding up was not a concern, the user is an enthusiast home cook and not an aggressive or careless cutter. Customer gets what the customer wants, I can only provide an opinion.
