A special request for help:   I have just started selling some of my tools on Amazon. As a "newby", I'm pretty invisible. If you are going to place an order for my knives, please consider buying them on Amazon. Purchases and reviews there will make a big difference to my visibility. You'll probably have to search for North Bay Forge to find my tools there. --THANKS!!

Forged Bevel Straight Knives

Please go here for more information about my bevel forging process.

Below is a picture of the three knives together for perspective

three forged bevel straight knives shown together

Please Note:    I don't use any jigs for shaping the profiles or bevels of these straight knives. Each blade is a bit different because they are forged and finished individually. Some are more rounded or staighter, for instance, or have less of the forging marks where the bevels were ground back more.

Any serious woodcarver will tell you it's no fun carving with a dull knife. 
	Cheap knives don't stay sharp. Poor quality knives have been responsible for discouraging many novice 
	carvers. These very finely bevelled knives come razor sharp and stay that way with minimal care.

Extra Long Straight Knife

With a 3 inch blade (with forged bevels), this is handy for carving on larger pieces and still have enough length for slicing cuts.
The Cherry wood handle is regular length for single handed use (not extra long for two handed use). It is given a satin varnish finish, to make it stand up to kitchen use, as I also sell this as a paring knife.

Double Edge Straight Knife

This knife was originally designed by a bassoon player for shaping and scraping reeds. It is also a very versatile general carving knife. The blade is sharpened on both top and bottom. The entire straight edge (on bottom) is sharp and is 1.5 inches long. The rounded edge on top is only sharp along half it's length (at the tip). The other half of the top is thick and unsharpened so your thumb can press on it for greater power and control.

My carving knives are intended for serious wood carvers. They are razor sharp and can be very dangerous if used improperly. Please be careful and don't allow young people to use them unsupervised.

Your satisfaction is fully guaranteed. If you have a problem of any kind with one of my knives, please let me know. I will make it right with you.
