This project is a father and son project! My 15 year son wanted to make these knives for his great grandfather-94 y/o (my grandfather) , his grandfather 65 y/o (my dad), his uncle (my brother) and one of his good friends. The larger knife is one we made for my son, It is made out of purple wood. Two of the smaller knives are made off red oak and two are walnut.

To say the least I am very proud of my son in several ways.
- He used his on money to buy knife blanks and materials.
- The people he chose to receive his first wood working project.
- That he has taken and interest in woodworking!

Merry Christmas to all!

Great to see that your son has taken up your interest in woodworking. I’m looking forward to the day when my son is old enough to do so.

You should be very proud of your son. Excellent to hear about those qualities in a young man. GREAT looking projects as well.

I recently replaced some handles on some knives for my wife (the kitchen variety) and it was quite a fun project. Your son did a very nice job on these knives and I’m sure the recipients will value them for many years to come.

Oh wow, you just reminded me I bought blades for steak knives to make for Christmas. Well, too late for this year now. Nice job on yours.

Nice work. You and your son. My son (6) says he is going to be a scientist firefighter. Not sure what that will entail. He does have some interest in coming to the shop and nailing pieces of wood together.
