  1. These are my third and fourth knives. They are 1095 kitchen knives that I made for my house. One I thought was more of a general pairing/utility knife and the other is a chef's knife. Both use red oak as the handle material and do not have handle pins, just epoxy. What do you think?
  2. Up for grabs, a pair of kitchen knives I recently made. One is a 9-inch tip to tip pairing knife the blade itself is 4.5 inches and made out of 1/8 inch 1095 steel, nice and sturdy feel for peeling things and chopping stuff. The other knife is a chef's knife made from 1095 steel, it is 12 inches tip to tip and features a 7 inch blade.

  7. Using the wood charcoal pieces I started a fire and used a hair dryer to get it up to temperature. Once the steel became non-magnetic I quenched it in hydraulic oil from our tractors.
  8. Simple 1095 kitchen knife, I haven't really polished the blade up too nicely. I got in a rush and wanted to put the handle on lol. All in all it didn't come out too horrible? I think it was a respectable first blade.
