No real story other than a buddy asked me to make his wife a knife for her kitchen. Stainless steel blade, with walnut handles. I think this one turned out alright

Turned out just fine. Any idea what type of stainless? If so, was there a particular reason for using that grade of stainless? The reason I ask is that I like knives, whether for the kitchen or the outdoors, that hold up well, but it’s tough to wade through the information on line without getting lost in the numbers in a technical article about it being x amount of nickel, or iron, or chromium, etc.

Chris I dont know what the numbers are. Just had a piece laying around and thought it would make a good kitchen knife. Thanks

Tooch Thanks buddy, not sure, if we buy stamped out blades, it might be profitable, but not sure. Thanks buddy

Dave Thanks buddy, this is not a knife kit, just a piece of stainless steel and piece of walnut and a bit of time

Monte Thanks buddy

Thanks, Hoss. Those numbers only lead me to more confusion, so it’s just as well that I don’t know.

Good job, Hoss. That is really nice.

Did you shape the blade from a stainless blank?

Thanks for sharing.
