KKF Butcher Knife Project is happening!
Ok so this project almost 2 years in the making and nothing solid has been done to move forward, lots of talk and designing but no steel on the bench.
The plan is to make the first step now and get the ball rolling.
I will do batches/runs of these knives first....
1. 12" Scimitar - 52100 $399
2. Boning Knife - 52100 $250
Handles (will be wood) and specific construction will be Dave's choice. :spiteful:
I'm an antique knifenut from way back and appreciate the older patterns and slight variations in the more traditional ways that knives were designed and made years ago. The KKF butcher knives will have an old feeling to them, possibly distressed, or pre-patina'd even but will be new made from modern steel and heat treat. I'm looking to provide old school flavor combined with modern metallurgy and construction techniques. :thumbsup:
I'm thinking about making only what is ordered (like limited runs of specific patterns), taking 50% deposit at the time of ordering for steel and wood purchasing and getting going on setting this up for start up after my current orders are filled. And by the way, my current knife orders are going to start moving along a hell of a lot quicker here real soon so this isn't an issue for me to be concerned with. By doing this I'm setting up my work schedule for the foreseeable future and this is a good thing.
If you'd be interested in ordering a knife (or knives) from this run please post your interest and I'll get with you on sending you an invoice.
PS - there will be other knife types in the butcher line coming out later on down the line, we have lots of plans for some unique offerings. :)
