Kitchen Set, Nitro V & AEB-L
« on: July 11, 2019, 05:33:00 pm »
Just finished up this set on commission. 

The chef knife is Nitro V heat treated to 61-62 HRC, 10 inch blade.

Paring and filet knives are AEB-L also heat treated to 61-62 HRC.

AEB-L is a stainless steel used for making straight razors and Nitro V is basically the same alloy but with Nitrogen added.  I really like these two steels.  They don't hold an edge as long as some of the super steels like 3V, but much easier to sharpen and maintain.  Gets incredibly sharp as well.

Handles are stabilized spalted maple.

Now I can finally get caught up on the KITH.

Very nice
failure is an option, everyone fails, it's how you handle it that matters.
