    What am I even doing? part 2

    The trusty shovel is back at it again! This time I wanted to try a more useful chef knife design than the Serbian chef I did before. Since all my other “nice-ish” knives are 8-12 blades, I wanted to add a smaller blade to the arsenal. The blade on this guy is about 6 3/4 inches. I am really...

    Strip old oil from handles?

    Hello, has anyone found an effective way to clean and/or strip old oil from a wooden handle? I have a lot of old knives that have pretty significantly darkened from use over the years and was wondering if they could be brightened without the use of sandpaper? Thanks

    Knife unknowns

    Hello, newbie here! I purchased this knife a few months ago in VERY rough condition. There were chips in the edge and the tang was rusted away. I welded a new tang and made a new handle (yes, I realize the handle is a bit short). Would anyone know any more info about this knife? I had a friend...

    Hi from North Carolina, USA

    Hello, my name is Tag, I am a doctoral student in the USA. I love to cook and work with my hands. So naturally, I love to work on knives. I have just begun to scratch the surface of knives and have made a couple from scratch, and rehandled a couple from Japan. Most of my knives are carbon steel...
