Thanks everybody! Here's some more pictures.

Surface grinding the blade on the Blanchard grinder:


Profiling the blade:



Drilling of holes in the tang:




And my favorite part, heat treating!

Do you want a brother for few weeks. I would love to go through this experience with someone of your dad's reputation.

Some makers choose to grind to a certain bevel thickness before heat treating because the grinding becomes more difficult after its heat treated. This is especially important with high alloy steels like S30V and 10V. It's also possible to overheat the blade after it has been tempered and ruin or modify the temper. However, heat treating is somewhat easier before grinding to help prevent warping and also it gives very flat surfaces if plate quenching.

My guess is this is either AEB-L or 19C27 damascus which is pretty easy to grind after heat treating. Overheating is not much of an issue if proper precautions are taken when grinding. It's mostly a personal preference, and here it appears that my father felt it would be easier to do it this way with Calista.

The distal taper and tapered tang were produced with the surface grinder:



A grinding jig was used for the starting flat grind:



The freehand grinding is for the final convex grind:


The knife so far:

WOW, great looking knife. Once again jealousy does not even begin to describe how I feel. Can't wait to see how it turns out with a handle and everything.
