    In an effort to light a fire under this subforum and get some interest going for the knifes that many of us use the most, I would request that the guys who make kitchen knives post some pictures of ones they have made. The pics and knives don't have to be world class. Mine certainly aren't but I am willing to embarrass myself in public to further the cause. Join in. :D

    Most of these I've already posted somewhere, but I'll do what I can to get this thread started! Love the idea. Unfortunately my picture taking skills are far from fair...

    These two were my first attempts at Kirnite. Unfortunately, I really liked the way they turned out. Unfortunate because I just bought a LOT of wood over the holidays, ha! Both were 1095, hand sanded to 600 grit

    This shape was a special request. Not something I'd ordinarily do

    This one is about a year old, but my favorite user.

    Plus I love this G-10 frame handle construction

    [​IMG]

    Trying something new with some small utility slicers. .063" 15N20, walnut and Ironwood handles.

    I know they all look a bit plain. But I've got plans to use that awesome wood I bought! Just need to find some free weekends

    Let's keep this going! I want to see ALL the kitchen knives! :)

    My computer crashed recently and I lost all my old pics. I will be posting more here as I finish them and get decent pics taken. Here is the only kitchen knife pic I currently have.

    Mark, I suspect the there are a couple of more blades on here using your wood. One of mine does for sure, the full tang gyuto with amboyna. Don't know any about the ones with the Stefan handles.

    Just finished my first of the set in Gyuto style, very thinly ground on this one. I would be interested to hear design comments. This is my second Gyuto design, and I'm already modifying the blade shape from this, but would like to hear suggestions on handle configuration, blade shape, and preferred grinds.

    Modified D Handle Desert Ironwood with CA finish and Ebony. AEBL stainless with full flat grind. Thin, at about 2mm tapering to the tip.

    How do you like cutting with it? Looks like a good rocker to me and a onion and tomato slayer as long as the tip is thin enough. Awesome Ironwood too!

    Finished this one up just now! I like the curly maple saya, my first one made. The pin is out of the handle material Koa. I "turned" it on my drill press , hehe

    I am not a bladesmith, but one of my friends has his own company. If it's ok with y'all, I'll ask his permission to post some pics of his gorgeous blades.

    He is making me a custom blade and I will be happy to share once I receive the final product

    [edit] Good lord, you fellas make some beautiful blades. I should have read up more on the forums before opening my mouth... now I feel dumb

    Hey Tim, I went on vacation to the Oregon coast for week when I finished this, so I hope to run it through some veggies now that I'm back. The tip is very thin, so should be good. I'll see about posting a few more pics soon. This is a modified D handle, so I am looking forward to seeing how that works out as well.

    Your Gyuto looks nice. I see your tip is raised with plenty of rock to it. Is that the design you prefer, or an experiment? I see you have done some in a more traditional blade style.

    that last knife i posted I had started before I did much research into Japanese knives. It sat around for a couple years and every once in awhile I would work on it. Lately I prefer lower point with a more gentle rock and a more santoku like tip. Honestly though, Ive come to find that every different knife shape has its pros and cons and my preference keeps on changing.

    Check out this video, this is what I imagine your knife does very well!

    Ian how do you line up the billet/blade to press the chevrons? Do you forge it to the general profile first or press an straight bar?

    Your work is amazing Ian. You have inspired quite a few of my projects this last year.

    Here is one I just finished up, and a few pics of my next projects profiled (AEBL and 52100).
