My wife asked me if I could make a wooden knife for cutting brownies and cakes. This is my first attempt. The blade is cherry and the handle black walnut. Finish is mineral oil and beeswax.

I like the look and shape of this one .
The wooden knifes work quite well and I just had a report on it’s durability from a friend that I gave this one to and she likes using it .

Thanks for your all comments. This was a fun project. It took about an hour of CNC design time (Vectric Aspire software) and only a few minutes to cut on the CNC. Sanded the blade by hand and rounded over the handle on the router table. Took about two hours to complete the whole project.

-- Roger Gaborski,
