    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.



    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.


    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.

    Thanks,
    Dave


    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.

    Especially a profile pic of the boning knife.

    I have wanted this for a long time....just need to decide which one, but I am in.

    I wanted to ask you guys are you more interested in a traditional straight edged boning knife (where the curve only exists at the tip) or more of a trimming knife (same length but slight curve along the entire length)?

    Also, there's the skinning knife that's a bit longer and wider and that's all curve (sort of a mini-scimitar). This will be made on the next round.

    I forgot to mention that the handles will be very old school traditional looking yet smoothed over for a nice un-blocky feel.

    +1. I'd be more interested in the trimming style.

    The trimming style is what I want to make but I figure that this is a good time to ask.

    Please keep the opinions coming though.
