I love that one.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
I just finished up these two butcher knives....
1. 7.5" Butcher
2. 6" Boning
Steel - O1
Handles - African Blackwood with nickel silver pins
This is the first boning knife that I've made. It took me a bit to get just right but in the end I liked it enough that I made a pattern/copy of it. This knife, just like the butcher, is fully convex ground plus it's distal tapered nicely down to the tip. It's thin - yet stiff. I added a notch cut out just before the handle to allow for proper sharpening the full length of the blade. I fashioned it after an early 1900's Remington professional butcher knife pattern found in an old catalog. What do you think about it?
