I love to cook- obvious from my pants size- and always wanted a really nice knife that would not always need sharpening every time it was to be used.
The Jantz knife making site has a great collection of supplies and instructions. After much deliberation, I ordered the materials needed to make this knife. It was my first attempt at making a complete knife, although I did replace a handle for a secretary at work.
The handle is African Blackwood, a Damascus blade in the Hamal Chef style and the “rivets” (pins) are.125” copper and zinc windmill design.
The handle was sanded thru 5000 grit and then buffed with Hut PPP White finish.
And it works!! Tomatoes cut with the edge straight from Jantz!
