Very nice knives. I don’t mean to bring negativity to the table but I have to share that I am very disappointed in the blades. They are too thin, so they flex. Yes, you can try various tensioning techniques but in my opinion, they need to at least double, if not triple the thickness of these blades. I’m willing to pay the higher price for a functional blade. The knives I made are going unused because they don’t work well. Just a head’s up.

Lenny I 100% agree i played around for hours I thought it was just me :) . I think next time I’m going to look online for some better quality blades theses are very flimsy. I’ll post here if I found some.

Interesting handle design. I can see how these would be easier to use than a straight handle. The purpleheart really stands out! I bought some blades from KencraftCompany.com and haven’t made them, yet. I may try this style of holder. Thanks for sharing.
