A set of kitchen knives gone to a new home....

Recommended Posts

These were made from farrier's rasps as requested by the customer. The first picture is what each blade started from. They all had Arizona Desert Ironwood handles with SS Loveless bolts as well as epoxy. The rasps had to be normalized, worked, then heat treated and tempered.

The block is made from walnut. Thirteen pieces make up the block then glued, jointed, sanded, stained and finished.It took the better part of a month working part time to finish the set.

Very tasteful. I would say that you have outdone yourself, but I don't think you will ever outdo yourself. I just don't think there's a limit to the talent.

Those are fantastic. 

 

I've got an old kitchen knife that the handle is messed up, got any idea on cost to replace the grip with something like that? Those handles look to be about the right size and shape.

I'd hazard.... butcher knife, two chef's knives,  standard kitchen knife, and paring knife on the end.

As has been repeated before, excellent work.

after seeing this thread I requested a couple for my kitchen. If you read the comments from other owners the reoccurring theme they are much better in person is true.  Thanks GT, mad skills!
