Paring Knife

Very similar to my straight knives for wood carving - my special bevel forging process, high carbon steel, fully hardened, finely beveled, razor sharp. The Cherry wood handle is given a satin varnish finish, to make it stand up to kitchen use.

     Cutlery  Story           Forging     
These knives were forged from flat stock high carbon steel. Most of the blades were "gun blued", which is a chemical process that darkens the surface and provides it with a good degree of protection from rust.
The "buffed" blades are actually much shinier than the pictures show, and were treated with a light oil that penetrates into the surface.
The first two groups below (Fine Chef's Knives and Fine Cleavers) have exceptionally fine bevels of about 6 degrees total, so can be quite dangerous if carelessly used by someone not experienced with very sharp cutlery. They are not meant for cutting or chopping bone.
The third group (Heavy Cleavers) have bevels of about 30 degrees and are meant for heavy chopping through bone.
All the pictures below were taken before final sharpening.

Fine Chef's Knives

Because of the high interest in these knives, I will be making a batch of chef's knives with blades about 8.5" x 2.5". They will probably all be gun blued and have various hardwood handles. Please email me if you want to be informed when they are available (hopefully early in the new year).
