I was one of his early testing subject lol. Great workmanship for his age.
Just looked him up. I wish I hadn't, because now i want to give this kid money. 16yo?? This guy has some talent for sure
I was thinking the same thing! Going to have to support a young talent now.
I was thinking the same thing, at the time I was having couple knife projects with other makers and I was like what the hell, might as well support the kid so he can have some knives in his portfolio. He sure did impressed me.

Wide and narrow convex grinds on Bark River knives

Post by ken123 »

Wide and narrow convex grinds on Bark River knives

As many of you know I AM a fan of Bark River knives and impressed with the initial factory grinds on their knives. But I also like to experiment a bit. I reground this knife (Aurora 3v LT) with a much more acute and wider angle - still convex. I'm not particularly hard on my knives BUT I do want them extremely sharp. These are initial grinds and will be made much sharper :)\

So my question is - is this too acute of an edge angle for your use? It obviously drops through food etc, but it is not an edge I would use for bushcraft tasks. I'm interested in your thoughts on alternative grinds. Thanks for lookingI

First post! In chronological order from right to left:
IMG_20190420_175736.jpg
  • ~1992: My first knife purchase ever was this Martin Yan branded Chinese chef's knife, purchased when he visited my school. It has "Japan" inscribed on the blade, but I think it was actually made by Messermeister. Doesn't take a great edge, but it's very tough. It's been through a lot of board scraping and garlic smashing. I didn't use anything else until...
  • 2006: Hattori HD-1 petty, purchased from CKTG! (You could say I've been lurking for 13 years). My first foray into Japanese knives.
  • 2009: Hattori HD santoku and 210 gyuto from JCK; I was going to sell whichever I liked less (the gyuto), but ended up keeping both.
  • 2018: Elephant 4-Star Nogent Sabatier, NOS. My first reactive knife; I was also curious about the old French-style profiles. The edge came with a smile and needed some work to be useful. Ended up not being my thing, but I keep it for the history.
  • 2019: FM 210. First wa, first paper steel knife. I was surprised how much more reactive it was than the Sabatier. I like this one, except for the handle. I expect soon I'll be asking some questions about how to source and order custom handles.
  • 2019: Takeda NAS. I love this one. Such great food release! The bog oak handle was pretty uncomfortable at first; lots of small and very sharp crevices.

I love the background story! Those takeda nakiris are awesome. The stock handles are takedas are nice.
