Here's a pic of the kitchen knife I started.


My sander is supposed to come on Friday so I'll be able to do the grinds then. :)

If anyone wants to look at the process of making my first knives then please look at this thread.

An unfinished kitchen knife, holiday lights, bare feet, a gnarley rubber hose and some sort of tarp/body-bag.

Makes me feel like something bad is going to happen to me.

I was just having flashbacks to my Sinaloa days.

Haha! I hadn't thought about that! It doesn't look so weird in person, but you get a bit of everything in a small frame. :P The "body-bag" is a furniture cover BTW. ;)

Haha! I didn't expect these types of replies. :P

What do you guys think of the shape?

The specs are:

1/8" 1084
9" blade
4.75" handle

You guys :)

Erdbeereis, I think the profile is good, but I'd change the angle of the heel and raise the tip just a little bit. Something like this:

Thanks Don!

I think I'll leave this one as it is for now as it would be to much work to file all of the steel off. I will, however, consider your advice for my next one. :)

Here's a rather large update...

I did the grind on the knife now. It's definitely getting easier the more times I do it.



Tip geometry.


Edge thickness.
