This knife is meant for a baker to be used to divide dough and also as a oven hook to push and pull the oven rack .
Made from maple and lace wood for the handle and a strip of jatoba for the edge (very hard ) .

Looks very useful for the cook. Is that a Stollen?

Very useful Klause and much safer than steel blade. Is it tough enough to use two hands for a chopping motion?

I know you make useful items. I cook,and use the oven a lot. I am too much in awe of your stuff to want to mar it! Another elegant solution!

Love it, Klaus! Any fancy joinery for the jatoba blade? I am resisting trying your hollow ground edge on a cutter that already has the finish on it (and has to get in the mail soon). You are making it tough. Hahaha
A very useful tool indeed. Thanks for sharing.

Awesome work Klaus. Love this and the idea of it.

We have an Aircraft Fueler that service’s my plane every night, that makes some amazing bread. He brings it to me weekly. Would love to make one for him as a gift. Any info or plans or suggestions would be great.

Thx so much.

Here is a Pic of the bread he made me last night.

, Oh my!

On this one I just glued the edge on with TITE BOND 3 and had the maple blade alredy coved so just beveled the jatoba edge to match .
A better way is to dado the blade and glue a strip in and then cut the cove .
Does that make sense ?
