  1. Dear friends! While I have already posted pictures of my kitchen knives here, I got so beautiful pictures recently I feel the need to share. And the knife is a very special one too Photos by Toomas Huik

    Dear colleagues, I have not posted for a while. Partly, because I have no camera and skills to take pictures ( and, indeed, I'm not intended to learn ) Partly, because I have not made much thing worth to post. But... while bored of usual stuff, I started to dream about making a folding knife. It took a long time from dream to actually making one. Thank's to my friend Jukka Hankala, who so kindly accepted me as an apprentice in his shop and as a guest in his home! So, here is my very first folding knife. You can see a hole for a thumb stud but nothing attached. I didn't want to make any cuts in the handle, so I decided to leave it as it is and make an other, with better way to open. RWL34 blade, micarta handle with titanium liners. Thanks.
  3. That's a beauty! A truly inspirational! Looked at your website and true it is - better fused than previous attempts Perhaps both, the blade as well as handle have a scent of japanese style in. So overall, it's not like you fused two entirely different parts. Thanks for showing! Tõnu
  4. That's what an art knife is It's a knife ant it's an art. Seen very few in the same level Thank you!

    Slicing knife

    You surprised me with that handle. It is really well designed. I would say I specially like lower line but it would be wrong. Important is how well they come together! Still, lower line is very good.

    Hello, Have not posted for a while. Partly because I do not have a camera. Also, I don't think all I do is so damn interesting But here is one of my latest. I wanted to do a knife with stones in the guard, facing towards the tip of the blade. Had this "dream" for a long but had not any excuse to make it real Then I had an exhibition of my works and there it was, a good reason for make it. Did not had complete design, just an obscure idea about stones. But time was running out and I started from what I had. Not a good way to work though. It's still unfinished (undesigned). I hope I finish it soon. Otherwise it will ceases to be interesting. Thanks Tõnu
  7. Wielandish, indeed! What a beauty! Tõnu

    Hi James, I make my damascus from tool steels K460 and K600 made by Böhler. http://www.bohler-edelstahl.com/english/3382_ENG_HTML.php

    Hi, I haven't posted for a while. Because I haven't made a lot for a while. Here is a knife I made for a Belgian knife show in Gembloux. Blade is damascus, other stuff is tombak, bronze and desert ironwood. Thanks Tõnu
  10. Not that I need it, but..... Would be cool to own something like that

    A fighter.

    Hi folks! I didn't want to sound like an arrogant bitch but apparently managed to do so. Sorry! I know it's a good , well designed and well made knife. And I understand... well, some other aspects too. But I have very little to say about this knife and nothing different from previous posts. Annoyng, isn't it? And nobody want's it However, thanks for kind words! Tõnu

    Hi, A knife as usual - damascus blade, silver and iron fittings and (a bit unusual for me) a handle of desert ironwood. I don't know the lenght of the blade, I doubt I ever measured but I guess its 20 cm and perhaps more. Didn't like to work with desert ironwood. Hard to make precise lines and all the beauty comes out only after polishing/buffing, witch will kill the forms and shapes I guess, it's not good for intricate shapes, have to work out how to use it.
  13. What can I say.... Gerhard, I wish I had made this

    A knife

    Heh:) Why would somebody do it in such a complicated way? How about spacers? Like in the bolt or something While it looks like I have abandoned forum, the real reason for not posting - I have no camera. Photos in my recent posts are made by pro. I tried to shoot some of my knives. Borrowed a Canon D1 and a bunch of lens. Yet pro made better pix with soapbox. So, what a hell, my knives are good enough, I don't have to learn another trade

    A knife

    Forged and hardened it as a test blade. After a year or so finished it. Never had any drawings, just started to make it and here it is. Blade is Böhler K510 Handle made of tombak, steel; ebony Perhaps you want to look closer? Here it comes, very close It's hard to decide wich wiew is the best. Here is another: Thanks for looking Tõnu

    Another kitchen knife. Asymmetrical blade and handle Blade is made of Niolox, 2.2 mm thick and with hollow grind in one side. Teak handle. Blade edge was about 0.3 mm before sharpening. Feels like cutting with 20 cm razor blade Knife for a left hand here. Knives for both hand One with handle of birdseye maple. The other side Thanks Tõnu
  17. Hi, I guess it's for anchovy Actually made as a joke for friend. It's a small fillet knife with +10cm x 0,6 cm blade. Turned out a favorite kitchen instrument for him. Blade is Niolox, handle unknown wood. Cheers Tõnu
  18. Heh! Nothing wrong with the straight guard methinks. It's perfectly reasonable option for such a "floating" design, helps to keep things visually together and acts as axis of symmetry. There are some other aspects that need refining but overall a good work. What comes to modelling - practice! Tõnu
  19. It will get better, I believe

    Heh! So it's not only with me Sometimes I feel like I'm invisible.
  21. Wow! It's amazing! And I allready liked the first one. This is definitely better (though, the bronze part on first had somewhat better shape ) Will I see it in Solingen? Thanks for showing! Tõnu
  22. If I would make a gift like this, I would insist the reciever to use it
