This is a pair of steak knives I made using some cocobolo. I bought a set of four blades from Woodcraft and the knives are great except for the pins they supply. The knife company (Sarge) supplies aluminum pins which I found were to be too weak. The problem is that when I try to put the aluminum pins in the holes using a vice, the pins bend and will not go in straight. As a solution, I bought a stainless steel rod and made my own pins which are much stronger.
I finished them using mineral oil. I wasn’t too sure what I should have used for a finish so if any of you have suggestions for a finish for my next pair of knives, I would appreciate it. Thanks for looking.
