Steak Knives Part 6 - Gallery



Okay, so this is going to be a bit strange. I recently got married, and made steak knives for the gentlemen members of our wedding party. I've mad a multi-post series about *how* I made them, but since most people aren't going to be nearly as interested in how I picked the finish as they are in the finished product, I'm going to post the gallery pictures first, and the process posts next. So, without further ado, enjoy Steak Knives Part 6 (the first to be posted).

The knives needed boxes, so I built boxes out of ghost maple with either walnut, afromosia, or danggai trim:

  1. Very cool. Looks like a bit of work.

    1. It was. Any process you do for the first time takes longer than it should. Compound that by making lots of knives, and I have lots of hours in these. Totally worth it though.
