I always wanted to try my hand at the cutlery, so I bought a steel bar and got started.

After long hours shaping blades, make the heat treatment, shape sleeves, finishes, etc …

The first is called Mama-One, it measures 19 cm, the handle is made of cherry wood and secured with brass rivets. This knife is designed to cook.

The second is called Mama-Dashi, il is a Kiridashi (Japanese style) 15.5 cm 5 cm edge. The handle is made of oak and amaranth. This knife is designed to cut leather.

I hope not too digress … after all this is a kind of woodworking, is not it?

All tutorials are available on my blog :

Those are all great looking knives! Very creative designs with the hollow tangs and grips. And I love the file work on the spines. Just beautiful. If these are your first go at making knives, I think you’re off to an awesome start.

Great job. The grind and finishing look really professional. The lettering in the filework is neat. What steel are you using?
