A new kitchen steak/paring/boning knife for Monday

Hi there knife people!

I’d hoped to finish more than one this weekend, but no luck. I did make a little progress on the Australian Camp Knife, but that is now classified until its done (NJJ – you’ll get your picture via e-mail).

Of the two kitchen carver/steak/boning knives, I finished the smaller one. Bdoodles, if you are watching, the one I imagine may be for you is a little bigger, and a little different, and the handle will be quite a bit different.

Anyway, here is AR37.

I also tried carving in the Hanged Man logo with a diamond bit on my dremel tool. It turned out OK, but isn’t as crisp as I’d like. I intend to commission a stamp for it, but can’t afford it yet. Some day… I carved in the AR37 also.

And here is a close- up of that.

Stats of AR37:

9 ½” overall, 4 ½” edge. Cru Forge V high vanadium carbon steel. Full tang. Steak/paring/boning kitchen knife. Handle is made of Bubinga, with a Holly pommel. The pins are brass, as is the thong hole.

It'll be posted on the Acrylicandsteel etsy shop soon..

so cool. I wouldn't worry about the stamp not being perfect. It is a reminder that you're holding a hand made one of a kind piece of work and that is awesome. Besides, the more you do it, the better you'll get.

Looking forward to it, Adam.

What's a stamp for that sort of thing cost, anyhow?

@Nic: I wish I knew Nic. One of these days I'll find out.

@Jaime: Thanks! they are definitely hand made, despite the power tools, no CAD for me :) And I know they'll get better, its just frustrating at the beginning.
