  • Knives

    I posted a picture of three knives I made last weekend.
    The handles are Curly Maple, Monkey wood, and Maple burl.
    They are small 1 inch blades. I have 16 more in various stages of completion.

    I am also nearly finished with the kitchen remodeling.

    Great knives, Rick! That bottom one looks like a perfect fit, I really like the looks of the handle on it. Are you as good at remodeling as you are at making knives?? Callynne

      Almost as good, but not nearly as fast.

        Hi Rick...the knives look really good! How did you manage to make 3 in one day? What did you use for the blades?

          Making three in one day is not a problem if I get free time to work on them.
          I use 3/16 diameter O1 tool steel dowel for small knives, it is pretty inexpensive and can be worked with a propane torch.

                  thanks for the info on the tool dowels. I will have to check

                    PaPa,
                    Thanks, I like using a variety of woods; I just cut out 25 spalted madrona handles.
                    I bought a pickup load of Quilted, Fiddleback, and Burl maple last month. I am drying it in my garage, should be ready by the end of summer.

                    Need to get the garage cleared out soon, I have a shipment of Minnisota basswood coming and need room to get it cut and planed.

                    It should be a nice summer, I don't have another show until August. Perhaps I can get some work done around the house.

                    I did finish the kitchen floor this last weekend, it actually turned out pretty nice.

                        Put down tile, it looks like slate; last time I layed tile was 26 years ago.
