Bagels, English muffins and homemade bread are no match for this home built knife.

Rockler will sell you the wood kit and the knife blade or just the knife blade which I bought here.

I glued up my own walnut and oak with Titebond III after sketching out a handle I wanted. Cut on the bandsaw and sanded smooth. Then Watco food safe oil rub down.

The wife loves her bagles and this one went over well. I learned quickly to keep fingers away from the business end. No saw-stop on this one….....................

That is great. My brother inlaw has one but he could not remember where he got it. Thanks for posting and yours looks great. Now that I know where to get the blades I can make one. :)

You can also make a pretty darn good bread knife of this type with a hunk of broken bandsaw blade…...half inch width is perfect.

Very nice breadknife, beautiful laminations . love that cutting board as well
I thought the same thing as jb ” i can use a bandsaw blade”
the best drilbit i have found to drill bandsaw blades are spotweld bits sold by autobody suppliers.

Put two blades, a height adjustment, and you just have the fanciest Agbay-like cake slicer ever ;)

Nice project—practical and helps maintain tranquility on the home front.
