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.

Beautiful piece and wonderful craftsmanship. I have been thinking of making a similar project and have designed several cnc patterns for it but haven’t cut any out yet.

How has it been standing up to use and basic wear and tear?
