I am in the Christmas present mode at the moment and these are a couple of bread boards and wooden knives that I made for one of my kids and she is not the safest person to handle a sharp knife .
Today I tested the two knives I made and the hollow ground one performed much better compared to the bevel ground edge .You can see the difference in pic one and three of how they cut my sandwich and I was quite surprised at the result .
Both knives are made from JATOBA/Brazilian cherry and the boards are a mix of Jatoba,hickory and maple and have a bevel edge at tip to make them useful to put a small pizza or sandwich in the oven or remove it .
I used the table saw to make the hollow grind type but feel a router in the table with a raised panel bit is a much safer way to do this .
Thank you Cady Frye for getting me started on pizza boards .
I got to get back in the shop no time to waste and many more presents to make .
Thanks for looking and comments always welcome !
