I made these knifes based on a pattern of my own kitchen knifes as a present for my niece.
I had always wanted to make a real chef knife, so this helped me scratch that itch without buying all the metal working tools.
The cutting board is from common 2×4 lumber and is only 1/2” thick. The handles on the knife are from a live oak tree the city cut down by my house. The blades were reclaimed from a pallet. The pins are 1/4” oak dowel rod.
The handles are extra thick for little hands. The blade is about an 1/8” thick on the cutting edge.
Everything was finished with mineral oil and then a beeswax cutting board oil.
They have stood up very well over the past year, and the fact that they can be washed and re-oiled by my niece is also an added bonus.

Good job, she is bound to be thrilled with them. Heck, she could at least cut cheese with them – a cheese board?
