Rustic Fillet knife


Rob Toneguzzo

Recommended Posts

Here is one I just finished up from a farriers rasp. I was originally going for more of a stiff boning Blade but decided to grind it thinner and give it more of an upward sweep. It still is on the stiff side but has enough flex and edge retention. I put a buffalo horn end cap which I could have fitted better but decided to keep it a bit rough to fit with the  rustic look. I am actually thinking of doing a full kitchen set like this.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

What is the handle? Looks like it’s all a single piece 

Hi Oberu, it is all the one piece of rasp. I forge and roll the socket first then draw out the blade. I am enjoying this kind of blade as sometimes it is nice to not have to worry about scales, bolsters, pins, glue Etc and in my opinion it give a real “from the forge” feel. Still fine tuning my technique on my his style though.

Right on.. I've only done arrow heads as far as sockets go.  I was trying to wrap my head around it hehe... I was thinking maybe you'd upset it edgewise... I'd love to sit and watch you do one of these.  Very cool!

That's a slick knife. How did you seal up the narrow end of the socket?

 

And I'd definitely call that an eating fish with those big sharp pointy teeth!

Have you considered filling the socket with epoxy or another resin to keep fish parts from getting stuck inside? If you left the end open, I'd say that you could just wash it out, but I'd be a little concerned with not being able to clean it completely.

Bummer. Was hoping for some inspiring words on how to close up so nicely ;).

 

BUT you forgot the most important report...HOW DID IT WORK?

I had not considered that Bob. I could colour the epoxy black and do that for sure. The horn cap is a friction fit so I can remove it and run a brush through.I  am always looking to fine tune things.

Worked well for that size fish Bill, I have a longer knife for bigger fish. Be great for breaking down chickens. Going to give a closed socket a go soon. Will start with a couple of arrowheads I think.
