    Kitchen Knives

    Thought I'd post a few pics of some recently complete kitchen knives. Hope you like....

    2. D2, Walnut handles, stainless liners.



    3. Glass platen an mist system I set up for kitchen knives to stop finger burn, messy but works well....

    Very nice work, they look like real users.
    Like that misting set up.
    Think you mean bolsters rather than liners.
    Look forward to seeing the others finished.

    Thanks Camperman, yes stainless bolsters red liners, both hav eliners just can't see them in the picks. The misting system makes a big difference when doing thinner kitchen knives but not worth the mess with hunting ones.

    Got this small hunter on the go at the moment. Have just put scales together and started hand sanding. Camel bone and paper micarta, will probably use nickel silver pins, wanted to try bronze ones but can't find any 2mm stock.

    Looks very good.
    Tapered tang?
    I've tried making some small Corby rivets out of bronze on the lathe. It's quite brittle when thin. I never got them right, otherwise I'd offer to turn some down for you.
    Don't bend down with that sticky out bit there.

    Very nice work. Superb to see a wet grinding system.

    The hunter looks to be convex?

    How thin do you go?
