Big Batch of Knives

I know that I don't post here very much, but I thought that I would give everyone a heads up that I'm currently working on a big batch of carving knives which should be done in the next week or two.  Just for fun I took a pic of all the blades laid out on my workbench.  That's a lot of grinding!

I have three blades of each of the following profiles: 1-1/2" all-purpose scimitar, 1-1/4" all-purpose scimitar, 1-1/2" all-purpose katana, 1-1/4" all-purpose katana, 1-1/4" all-purpose hybrid, 1" detail arrow, and 1" detail katana.  These blades are all made from thin material, so they are nice and flexible.

I plan to give each of these groups of three dolphin, octagonal dolphin, and caterpillar style handles out of differing wood varieties.  It should give folks exactly what they are looking for.  Let me know if you have any specific requests and I'll try to meet your needs.  I'll post some finished pics when I get these done and you'll find them on the "Available Tools" page when they are ready for new owners.

Happy carving!


  1. Yes indeed that is a lot of grinding. I love my knife from you. It is thin and flexs. It is 1 a d 1/4 I believe. What steel do you use? Thinking about the 1 and 1/2 scrimpter blade.

    1. For this batch of knives I used the steel from floor scraper blades. This steel keeps the knife blades thin and flexible, just right for carving, and they really hold an edge well.
