kitchen choping knife

Recommended Posts

kitchen knife for my parents. this is the second version, the first was pretty ugly and not very well proportioned, and it was worped! i am actually happy with this one.
the handle scales are curley maple from a mine support beam, the pins are copper(telegraph wire), the blade is bandsaw blade from a sawmill. the original one was used as a pattern which was changed to work better. it is triple normalized and edge quenched about 3/4 inch along the edge, which looks kind of yellowish in the pics. it has been used daily in catering for a little more than a year now and is still super sharp.i am glad that the blade blackened, because it doesn't get rusty as easily. :rolleyes:
