  • Crafting a compact blade for a valued US customer. EDC knives weren't really on my radar before, but I think I need one too. The discarded saw blade with its rugged appeal has proven itself as an excellent carbon steel for knives. Up next: adding the handle scales. Join me on this journey to witness the final masterpiece! #Knifemaking #KitchenKnives #EDCKnife

  • If you care about user comfort of the knife you're making, rounding off the heel is always a good idea. Working on a custom ordered 10 inch chefs knife. #WIPWednesday #ArtisanKnives #KitchenEssentials #ChefLife #oooms
  • Well, this can happen when you use discarded  sawblades to make knives. Most likely this would have cracked all the way at the heat treatment anyway, but at least I discovered it early on in the process. #oooms #knifemaking #carbonsteelknives
  • Heat treatment time! Hardening a custom 10 Inch chefs knife, made of AEB-L stainless steel. Many more steps to take before this knife is finished but this is an important one to do properly.
