I made this set with the help of my brother, who recently got interested in knife making. I was already planning on making these for my sister as a Christmas gift, and I thought it would be a good start for him. The knives are part of the favorites collection from texasknife.com. Stainless blades. I used bubinga for the handles. The pins were something like 5/32”. For some reason none of the holes on the tang were the same size, so we had to use a belt sander and slowly grind down the pins so they would fit. That’s the reason for any irregularities you see in the shape of the pins. I thought it turned out pretty well for our first try, a little bit crazy trying to get everything put together when all you have is 6-minute epoxy haha. I sanded from 100 grit up to 1500 to get a silky smooth feel, and finished the handles with Howard’s Butcher Block Conditioner. Thanks for looking :)

Handsome. She have them for a long, long time- and the added bonus is she’ll think of you every time she picks one up. Great gift.

Very nice knives. I have a friend who recently took up knife making. It looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Thank you both. It is a lot of fun. It’s cool to watch it go from all blocky and ugly to curvy and smooth. It takes patience, but its very rewarding when its finished.
