Kitchen Utility (#14)

This is my first random-pattern-weld project: a kitchen utility knife for my personal use. I want to see how this profile works in practice – and how the 1095/15N20 blade & maple-finished-in-coconut-oil stand up over time!

I’ve had the blade profile rattling around in my brain for a few years – and the handle profile is inspired by one of the pieces in my knifemaker-buddy Dietrich’s ABS Presentation set (Podforge JS Presentation Set). I tilted the handle up so I won’t rap my knuckles on the cutting board.

This knife has half a dozen minor things about it that I would change next time – but overall I’m tickled with it!

Hope you enjoy the photos!
