Hi All,

I haven't been around lately because of computer problems, but it's fixed now, so here's some knives I just finished.

The shorter fillet and chef knife are 52100 ball bearing steel, and the other fillet is 5160.

Wow! Those are really nice. I particularly like the chefs knife. The lighter colored handle is not something I've seen often.


p.s.: the etched fish looks grumpy!

Great to see you back in here, Dave. And those are some beautiful knives. Your "fit and finish" is always TOP SHELF.
the FISH is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet [Punk]. FWIW, I thought it was engraved...... [Black Eye]

Good to see you back David. As usual, top notch. I love the finish of your knives.

Beautiful work David, I never though about making kitchen knives before...Maybe I'll try a nice filet knife. I love the fish. Looks life a black sea bass. If I remember right...your using a Lindsay airgraver? I just picked one up not too long ago and would love to meet up with someone to pick up some tips and tricks of the trade.

Etched, Engraved....whatever. [Sorry] Either way it's damn fine work.

I barely find time to post, let alone read what I'm typing!

David: On your handle rivets do you make a slight countersink in the wood to accommodate riveting of the brass rod or does it just expand enough in the untouched wood? Hope my question is clear. thanks, Eric S.
