Good job; I've ordered some thin 1095 to make some now that I've added kitchen knives to my line.
They look awesome Bro.

Nice
NICE pieces!!!
What I like about them is that they are not all identical
Leaves that handmade humanistic feel in them.
Can you do a "build along thread" on how you make these?

Again GREAT WORK!!!

Thank yall for the kind words!!


Yes, none of my knives are ever exactly alike because I dont use patterns and I'm not good enough to make em match exactly even if I wanted!haha I can get em close!!!

I do the drawings through my Facebook page, so you'll have to send me a friend request to see when I do them. This one is full however as i limit the entries.

I actually did a build along on my 1st knife I ever made back about 4 years ago on here... guess I could do another one since my process is WAYYYY different now!!haha If i can remember to take progress pics when i start a new one, I'll put em up here! got several knives at varying stages of completion on my bench right now that i gotta finish first!

Thanks again for the compliments!!

First off, the knives look great. I like the micarta color choice a lot. However, aren't those edges going to take a beating against ceramic plates? My understanding is that traditional steak knives are serrated so that the points touch the plate and the recessed sharpened portions do the cutting and do not contact the plate. I guess a steak knife doesn't need to be terribly sharp though.

Thank ya sir!! No idea really, but that sounds like solid reasoning! We have some non-serrated steak knives that we've been using since we got married 20 years ago and they've held up just fine...I have to sharpen them about once a year but I think as long as you're not trying to cut the plate into pieces, they'll be fine! (and as a side note, I resharpen any knife I've made for free!) Good question!!!

Good enough for me. I personally much prefer the non serrated look. Very clean.
