Pig themed kitchen knife and cutting board

Recommended Posts

San mai blade of 1095 core, random pattern shell, and pure nickle shims. Bolster and butt cap are 3D printed cast copper, designed to sport a pigs head and squiggly tail. The cutting board and knife holder was made by Eugene Manigo, owner of Kambui Custom Craft in Brooklyn - both the board and handle are reclaimed walnut and teak with new purpleheart.


This is the first completed knife using my friend and fellow knifemaker's, Jann Muchnikoph, 23 ton press; what a wonderful tool!

Comments and critique always welcome,

Thank you guys! 

The head does not open bottles, but that would have been sick.

The ring would have also been a neat idea, oh well, next time

I think this is my best one yet too... until this upcoming bowie, but you'll have to wait another week or so for that one ;P

and there's me, messin' about with little vises. What a beautiful piece of work and to combine master metalworking with master woodworking-truly a triumphant piece. Superb and bravo boys. That is what you call bringing home the bacon. Only someone unsighted could criticise it and only then because they couldn't see it. Tom.
