I like the kitchen knife idea. Never done one yet.

I think kitchen knives are cool too, I've been experimenting with them lately.

The "junkyard chef's knife"

Only scrap and leftover bits allowed in construction materials.

Even though I am the one who suggested the tomahawk, I just voted Kitchen knife.

I like Joshua's idea, Junkyard chef knife... I have a ton of scrap I could use for this project.

A scrap material knife sounds like a ton fun

Then scrap it is! That's all I use anyways. No new steel stock or materials for handles. Off cuts, files, and scrap wood are all accepted. I really want to try the hot dog in bun construction for these, especially because I now have a box of Cherry Heat flux!

They close? I didn't see an option for that.

 

It looks like it has been decided that we will do kitchen knives for 2017, so now a entry deadline date has to be decided, too.

How about doing it the same as last year? The deadline can be June 30, and then July 8 if it needs to be extended.

I voted kitchen knife, but I'm not totally for the "using only scraps" idea. Not everyone has much in the way of scraps laying around. :P

Also, are we going to determine a size minimum or maximum? Or are we going to just do a free for all (I.e. you may get a pairing knife... you may get a butcher's knife).

I would suggest some form of chefs knife. Whether french, german or japanese pattern.
At least 6" cutting edge.
I don't care about the scrap thing.
I have plenty of scrap, but fresh steel is fine by me.

I don't think I have enough scrap to make a kitchen knife

I wouldn't mind making another yanagi ba now that I know much more about what I am doing than when I made my first one. I'd use fresh W2 though...

Well, if I join this one, it's a "Junkyard Chef's Knife" because I have doing a can mosaic on my project list this year and this would be a great test knife for it.

What about a file welded to a WI wagon wheel? That's "scrap" but both are pretty well known on quality.

I was thinking about that, but I want to do some hamon chasing in W2.

Just leave it open ended... Everyone can use whatever materials, scrap or otherwise, that they want.

Well, if the file is 1095, and you did it San Mai with the WI on the outside, you could do the Hamon chasing with the 1095.

Just to throw my two bits, I'm not picky with what I get out of it, scrap or no. But I would prefer if we used good quality handle materials four use in a kitchen

Why not leave the material up to the smith then and just set the size and style parameters?
