Scrap bin kitchen chopper thingy. (WIP)

Recommended Posts

Dug some cut offs out of the ole scrap bin to mess around with in a canister. Had no real goal or plan in mind for a end product, just something to play with while waiting for my waterjet guy to do his job (he's slow as molasses, but free is a price I want complain about). 

1095 / 15n20 twist bars in the corners & a strip of 15n20 in the middle with 1084 powder to fill everything out. In a 7ga 2" x 2" can. I've never tried a can under a power hammer before & I still think a press would be better. But this is so much better than by hand. Forged together & drawn out & bent. I really dont much like dining kitchen choppers in damascus, as there's to many little obnoxious spots to file/ sand. But whatever. What's done is done. 

 

Started hand filing but didnt picture it. Chasing a cold shunt I didnt notice sooner.

Been busy with other work. But this is a thing a ma jiggy. But my wife  likes it & has laid claim to it for her kitchen. She's vegan and  needed a veggie killer she said. 

 

 

Wished it would have etched darker. Something I've struggled with is retaining a dark etch.

Thank you.

Was originally just something to play around with. Now I've got some guy at work wanting one for their wives. Should give me a chance to refine the concept some. Gots an idea for the next one anyway

For one of their wives? Is he by chance from southern Utah? 

Sorry, I couldnt help it, normally I am the one fending off the polygamy jokes being from Utah. I like the chopper, I need to make one of those since I have 3 kids who love chopped veggies...
