Welcome to my knife shop😀 You will find new items here for sale most every week. I have found I am more productive and push myself further producing work to sell here on my website. Therefore I no longer take any kind of custom order or reserve items for people. I find it better to concentrate on making the very best quality work and be able to offer more items for sale. These days I use Instagram to show my working process, and I also use Instagram to give notifications of new stock, and to Auction one off items. I intend to add a fresh Mailing list for a simple notification of when new knives come in stock for those who do not use Instagram, which I will add here shortly.
Kiridashi Set in display case.
Super Chunky pair of Kiridashi, forged in textural wrought from Sheffield cathedral , Achim’s famous sc145 super clean very high carbon steel. This set will hold an edge marking up projects for a long time. The bevels are convex making them durable and ideal for marking up wood projects, making deep fat cut lines.
The set is a left and right hand cut, for convenience to mark any cut.
The display case is in quilted maple, is recessed in a nice shape that allows easy finger access. It is also recessed to avoid the carbon steel touching the wood. The pair are secured with a generous magnet each.
Very unusual one of set from me, was a pleasure to make.
Here are the specifications for the right hand piece, they are similar.
This is a true Slicing machine, thick stiff spine, relatively thinner geometry but on the beefy convex side, designed for slicing weight and control. This is a particularly long elegant piece , complimented by a long Wa in horn and finest Snakewood, balances the machine perfectly with just the right amount of blade forward weight for that control.
Here are the knife specifications in detail.
Blade length 346mm
Geometry spine taper, 9mm to 1.2mm
Geometry heel 9mm to 1.8mm
The weight is 330grms
Balance is 31mm ahead of heel
Materials are my finest pure iron and c105 pure carbon steel core, very hard whilst tough with a nice jnat finish …
The handle is in natural cow and deer horn , with a particular beautiful piece of Snakewood, very hard and dense wood.
