Thread: Butcher Knife Set - KKF Member Project

  1. #1

    Butcher Knife Set - KKF Member Project

    So after getting a good 12 page response in the help to build a forum knife thread we've come to the conclusion that we're going to try something different - to design and make a western butcher's knife set.

    Please throw down your ideas on what you'd like to see.

    Dave

    Back to a drawing board. Got to love the forum.

    Here are two patterns taken from Forshcner/Victorinox - a boning, and a cimeter. Make them from 01 and put some nice handles on, and they might be what we're looking for?

    How important, or not, are the finger guard part of the handles? Nearly all old patterns were made with no guards built into the handles like the guarded versions shown in the two photos above. Are they necessary?

    Dave I think you should post those images of the catalogues of old cleavers again here. Doing something traditional that you can't get anymore cept secondhand would be pretty cool.

    LOL, I was just waiting for you to come along with this. It's actually quite do-able.
