TP4 6" Fillet Knife - Peacock Acrylester over AEB-L

This is the second TP4 that I have made. The handle is slightly longer, but has a firm hooked into the hand feeling. Shaped from 3/32" AEB-L and clad with peacock acrylester this knife is a joy to handle.

KN85-3 Honesuki in AEB-L and Desert Ironwood

This is a 160 mm right-handed honesuki made from AEB-L and desert ironwood. 

The construction is in such a way that the butt is screwed on and the screw is connected to the tang. This all happens inside the handle so it's in a way hidden and through at the same time.  

Bolster and butt are stainless with brass accents which go well with the rich ironwood tones.

DH65 Modified Skinner Nitro-V

Here's another KN64 with a slanted grain cocobolo handle on Nitro-V stock. The blade is 4" long and over it fits very well in the hand. The aim here was something simple and elegant.

KN48-6 Nitro-V Red Maple Chef's Knife

And...another KN48 full tang

This one is number six in the clan. A sleek and slicy 8.25" Nitro-V cheffy, featuring a handle shaped from stabilized red curly maple that tapers out to the butt for a super comfy and confident grip. Bolsters are 416 stainless accented by black liners. Pins are 416 and a 1/4" stainless mosaic in the centre position. Weighing in at a nimble 168 g (5.9 oz) and balanced for pinch grip hold; certainly a pleasure to operate.   

Thanks for stopping by. Happy making!
