Japanese Style Kitchen Knife

Beautiful Richard!

Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots

My life is like shaving with a razor sharp machete. It's a bit awkward and I feel a sting every now and then, but in the end I'm happy with the results.

Hi All

Here is another one

A Japanese Style Kitchen Knife




That is just beautiful!

Does the wood extend under the silver and mokume or are the fitting relatively solid pieces? I am beginning to make some knives and wonder how things are put together by people who do this a lot, thank you.

Beautiful work as always Richard.


The only problem with a kitchen knife this pretty is that one would hesitate to use it. Still, what a lucky chef to have such a tool at their disposal!


Thanks for sharing this.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Ooooo, that's purty. I love a good kitchen knife. This one's so pretty you'd hate to mess it up chopping onions, though!
