150mm Kiritsuke in 154CM and Katalox

Next in the petty kitchen series, this 150mm kiritsuke in 2.6mm-thick mill-finish 154CM, with G10 bolster and katalox handle. This version of my maker’s mark may be a little large for this piece… I just ordered smaller ones in a fresh stencil. Hardness targeted at ~61.5Rc in keeping with the style. Sharpening it was fun! Edge is ~20d on the ground face with a ~10d microbevel on the back.

185mm Deba in 1084 and katalox

First intentional deba, to be tested by David on tuna and other mid-sized ocean fish. Feedback and revisions as necessary.
185mm/7″ of 4mm/0.156″ thick 1084, katalox and G10. 284g/10oz total weight, this thing is a beast.
Target edge hardness is 61.5Rc.
Thanks to GSOM@BFC for introducing me to the katalox.
I really dig making these rough-finish working knives in addition to the hand-sanded stuff.
