Dinner knifes MaFe style
Long waiting project finally done.
This is our new dinner knifes, an old wish of making a bunch of dinner knifes with same blades but different styles, shapes, but all handles of wood with contrasting woods in so none will be the same.
Because I think it will be fun to have a choice, because I have made many knifes but never the basic dinner knifes, but most of all because I think it will be wonderful as a guest to be able to choose of perhaps as a family member to have a favorite knife.
So yes for pleasure, for making the dinner even more interesting.
Here they are close up.
1. The knifes.
2. Different woods cut up for the project.
3. A cut made and contrasting woods matched.
4. First shaping.
5. Final shaping.
6. Oil and finish.
We have used them for a couple of weeks now and really enjoy them, at first I was a bit nervous if they were too sharp, but it seems fine.
It is a joy and I have found my favorite…
What knife is your favorite?
Hope it can be to some inspiration, at least to my guests,
