This is a kitchen knife I I made for my mom. She said that when she used the handles on our kitchen knifes it hurt her wrist. So I made a short wide blade that rocks easy, and put a slim curved handle on it. I also used a file to carve the patterns along the spine of the knife. the blank it self I hand forged out of a high carbon steel rail road spike. I hardened it in vegetable oil so it would be food safe.
I am very happy with how this knife turned out It was a fun project and it work great as a kitchen knife. I hope to one day do a full tutorial on how to make it.
