I have postponed working on knives for pretty much two months in order to get out all my pots ready for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters, my trunk show at my sister's, and to fill the two shops here in town that carry my work. And now.....I get to work on some knives for gifts and myself. The pieces here are ones I cut out and ground in the profile today. I still have half a dozen from before that are awaiting heat treatment, beveling, handles and more. Between now and Christmas I hope to get them all ready for use by friends and family. And, I'm really looking forward to using a chef's knife that I have created myself.
Cutting out the profiles with an angle grinder.
Roughly cut out.
Grinding the profiles with my 2 x 36 multi-tool. Wish I could afford a 2 x 72.....maybe later.
In the making.....three nakiri, two kiritsuke yo-gyutos, and a couple of paring knives.
