    cheese Knife

    after not finding a cheese knife myself and my wife could agree on, i told her i'd make one, so this is what i spent a few hours on over the weekend.

    the blade is a forged blank from axminster so i can't claim credit for that.

    The handle is violet rose wood, which has a great colour, and a nice smell when your sanding it, originally a 1 X 1 X 6 inch block, i cut the initial shape with a tenon saw (it was all i had to hand) then rough shaped it using a surform rasp before final sanding.

    i haven't yet glued the blade in place and was going to put in a small leather spacer at the join to keep it all flush.

    any comments or ideas greatly welcomed.







    Cheers

    Stuart.

    p.s. sorry about the pic quality, it's from my camera phone.

    Wood is also from axminster, it's on their website under the woodturning section. it's actually quite nice to work with, mind you when drilling it tended to clog up the drill bit. it sands to a really fine powder and turns your hands purple until you wash them.

    Purple wood! Its just what I need for a project

    I have to say that is a very elegant cheese knife and will no doubt be a talking point at after dinner cheese munches!

    Cheese knive in france are very easy to find, but this one is great, and very original, i'm sure it could be have a great success on the table when friend are invited. The handle is very esthéthism

    Good word and great idea.
