Now kitchen knives really aren't my thing so after I finished the blades and glued the handle blocks on them they just sat on a shelf for months  but thought it was about time to finish them so I can

And actually got a commission to make a knife for once.   115crv3 core with a damascus cladding the I made so long ago I have no idea about layers in it    The ebony in the grip is

And the last one of those. Clay hardened c100 steel, 3.2mm at the shoulder and had a convex distal taper. 58mm tall at the heel and a 22cm cutting edge. Buffalo horn, tin and cocobolo in the octagonal

Been doing some more san mai blades and have finally gotten around to having stencils done to actually mark the blades I make.

 

Pink ivory and ebony for the handle on this one. I like those tropical woods mostly because all you need to do to get a nice finish is just sand and polish

And even more. Slowly getting better at ending up with a cladding somewhat symmetrical between sides. Forging them very close to thickness to get the cladding close to the edge has had me sweating in the grinding room about actually finding the core steel :lol:

And the latest one. Probably not the most efficient blade shape but just wanted to make it :lol:

 

Clay hardened C100, 21cm cutting edge and is 60mm tall so knuckles are free from the cutting board even with that overall shape.

 

I spent quite a bit of time finishing and putting small bevels on each piece of the handle before assembly and I do think it was worth the time. Buffalo horn, copper and a really interesting piece of boxwood

I really like the look of the rounded corners on the handle components.  It doesn't work with every knife, but it works really well with that one!

And one more. Clay hardened C100 steel. 3.2mm thick at the bolster and has a convex distal taper to the tip. 60mm tall at the heel and a 22cm cutting edge. Handle is ebony, copper and mallee burl.

 

On one hand I kind of want to spend a day rubbing it with lemon juice and polish but on the other I'm curious how it will end up with a natural patina with use

 

Have one more to go before turning the focus to a bunch of outdoor knives and then maybe just maybe I'll have time for some of the swords that are strewn around the workshop :lol:

Those are some real nice knives, the buffalo horn is great, and the tiny bevels well worth the effort.

Been a while since the last but here's a nakiri that now just needs some final polish and sharpening

 

The core is 115crv3 with a cladding in 75ni8 and 80crv2

 

Decided to try out an heirloom fit on the gidgee handle against the copper washer and think I'll continue making them with the edges slightly rounded instead on the next ones

The ebony in the grip is just amazing but my phone just really can't pick up the deep colours and tones in it
