  • Anybody use the Rich Notto knives?

    Captain brought up a pointthat has me scratching my head. I was about to venture out of my comfort zone, and get one because they look pretty high quality, but they dont have that flat cutting edge. Is the the knife going to slip more? Or will it help slice better because of the skew? I have been using the same kind of knife since I started.

    I find that the curved or skewed edge does cut better, especially in hard woods. However, the curved blades aren't worth a hoot to make a stop cut. I have only 1 true skew blade and just don't care for it much. Don't really know why.

      I have been chip carving for about 5 years and have always used a Rich Notto knife. I started with his Merchon M-l which has a small blade and now have his regular Merchon. The blades are flat, and only require honing as you carve. I think he really has good quality knives and he is a nice guy to talk to also. Very helpful with carving or sharpening questions. I have not used his curved knives as they don't seem to be the type for the kind of carving I do.

        How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
        Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
