Another set of carving knives that I have made. I intend to keep adding to them until I have a comprehensive range. These ones have dog’s heads on the end of the handle. The purpose of the different styled sets that I make is to either remind me of the blade material or to recognize knives that have blades with exceptional performance qualities. All the blades in the dog knives come from the same source.
The carving is in the Netsuke style and carried out over a couple of years. The top one, which is the latest, has much more detail and better carving than the first shown on the bottom. The 20th one should be fantastic. I normally us Jarrah for the dog knives. These are working knives and not intended as show pieces. They cut beautifully and are a joy to use. The overall length is about 200 mm.
