Putting handles on a Katsura Damascus kitchen knife set

Posted on August 30, 2019 at 12:30 7 Comments

I needed some decent kitchen knives as cooking is my favorite pass time. So I purchased a set of chef knives from Amazon and got to it.

Katsura AUS10 damascus blanks; 8" chef, 6.5" chinese cleaver, 7" Santoku and a 7" Nakiri. They all came without the Logo, matching Mosaic pins and gift boxes. Cost about $291/set.

As they'll been in my Girlfriends kitchen, I let her select the handle material. She liked the Purpleheart wood and Red liners. It's easy to work as far as I…

100% Custom knives by me....an ongoing endeavour.

Posted on April 19, 2013 at 18:00 15 Comments

For about 3 years now I have been drawing up & cutting out my own fixed blade knife designs. I have yet to complete even one of them. That is terrible, I know, but I am easily distracted by a Paying job and family. This Blog will help me to keep track of the projects.  Please offer up ideas and advice freely, I welcome all of it.

I will list these projects as I started them:


.125 x 1.5" 1095 steel knives. I started with a simple modified Tanto design with 3"…


Amatuer Buck 110 Custom Project -1/10/2014 Update

Posted on February 14, 2013 at 18:00 47 Comments

As some of you may know, recently I have caught the 110 bug. I've been buying older used 110's on eBay out of curiosity. 

Well, I love these knives. They're easy to re-furbish, re-task and the variations of handles are countless. 

This project will consist of a complete tear down, cleaning, New Damascus blade and scales. Plus, re-tasking the old blade into a usable fixed blade. This blog will be updated as the project progresses.
