here is a picture of a filet knife I made for my brother. He is a Chef. The knife is 13" long with a mahogany handle brass pins and a tong oil finish the blade is made from L-6 and 1095. it was tough to forge out then twisted and hammer flat I have enough for 2 more knives out of the billet. It was a fun project.



this is only my 4th knife. time to set up a grinding area

Francis...I can see it now: "Two Chefs' Handmade Knives" on a sign, going out of town,   on a back street,   with motorcycle peeps,    drinking brews at your bar,     with red heads and almost no tops.....  Well that is what knife making leads you into.


Be careful my friend.
