Kitchen knife - multi-purpose clip point

Recommended Posts

Finished my first kitchen knife tonight. Overall length is 12” with the handle ~5” and blade ~7”. The blade is 1095. The handle scales are wedge with a red liner. The grind was almost all freehand on the belt sander with a little work with a Dremel and some hand filing. Sharpened to 3000 grit on stones. This one is for multi-purpose so I put a clip point on it to do miscellaneous tasks. Next knife will be a more traditional French or Japanese style.

Looks pretty good. The only thing that’s looks a little off to me is the nub at the back of the edge, which would prevent you from using a chopping motion on a cutting board.

This looks much better! I would Knock that ricasso down though. I don't make kitchen knives, but I would say the edge is a tad thick. You don't want a ricasso on the next project. Keep at it man!
