Chef's Knife - Hand Forged 52100

Hey guys!
Was finally able to finish another knife and a video of the process!

Hand forged the blade out of- 52100 1" stock using my gas forge. Tried to forge down as close to the final shape as possible to minimize grinding, but some profiling was needed...

Heat treated it using a furnace since this steel doest take overheating very kindly.

Used a homemade micarta spacer and hard wood for the handle. Decided to go for an aluminum inlay for the handle pin drilling and used damascus steel for the pin (I bought this, didn't make it).

Really liked the way it turned out, but let me know what you guys think, ideas and improvements for the next ones!

Forged out of 52100 1" round stock:

After tempering (and brainstorming on handle shape):

Ready for glue up!

Much more detailed take on the finish knife on the video. Check it out!
