I Forge Iron

Kitchen knife


Recommended Posts

First attempt at a Japenese-style kitchen knife.
Rough forged blade from O1 steel. I love the patina that carbon steel develops after it has been used for a while. Much more interesting than stainless.
The blade was annealed and then edge quenched and has a slightly concave grind, done by using a slack belt on the grinder, and working well away from the contact wheel. This way it follows the slightly uneven forged profile of the blade rather than giving a sharp grind line.
The handle is stabilised oak, darkened by scorching on a on a very fine metal finishing belt.

Was made as a housewarming gift for a friend. She seems to like it.
