These Blackie Collins knives are my favorite. When I saw this Collector Series knife, I had to bite the bullet to buy it.

Putting handles on a Katsura Damascus kitchen knife set

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…

How about a blog on Heat Treating Recipes? As well as the Rockwell hardness you get for the same.

Here are some of the steels I use. Always looking for new Heat Treat recipes. Been at this a while if you need on let me know. the picture is a sample of what I do. The balance can be seen on FB at Mongrel Knives. Hope I am not violating any rules here still trying to navigate the site. Ken

Thrift store find!

Finally a new, (to me), knife to report, a genuine Camillus TL-29 found at one of my honey hole local thrift stores. Hardwood handle, stamped with the model number and in pretty good condition, (shown as found, uncleaned). Glad to be collecting again, at least for the time being.…

KnifeAddictsAnonymous KAA

I was thinking how tough it would  be to give up the use of a knife or reading about them, for even one day, I got the shakes just thinking about it. Maybe if I develop a 10 step program, I will be able to bring my addiction under control. I need those who are not suffering too bad ( yet ) to make suggestions as to what those 10 steps might be. 

Disclaimer:

I take no responsibility for what may occur to others who choose to follow  the suggestions for a KAA program. And, I do…

The Top Five Boker Fixed Blade Knives! (Look! I made a Top Five list!)

The Top Five Boker Fixed Blade Knives

(Since 1955)

As you may already know, I am a fan of Boker knives. I am not so much a fan of “Top 5” or “Top 10” lists, but so many people are doing it, there must be something to it! I have limited this list to post-WW2 knives, because the pre-war knives are so difficult to find nowadays. All the knives in this list are still being produced by the Heinrich Boker Baumwerk in Solingen, Germany. So if…

Custom Knives by Alan Davis

Thought I would start a blog here to showcase the work of my favorite knifemaker.   I stumbled across Alan Davis, a knifemaker from Boerne, Texas, in late 2012.  I was blown away by his knife designs.  Even more astounding was the fact that they were virtually all one of a kind creations.  Alan didn't just make one or two patterns and then just outfit them with different materials.  Each and every one was pretty much different.  While he did have a few designs that people seemed to like and…

Razor sharpening .

A shortish blog on sharpening straight razors. It will be short because I know little enough , though I have learned enough to be able to get the job done . Maybe I can return to this in future when I have more information but for the present it will be brief .

1 . If you want to learn to shave using a straight razor the most effective way is to buy a new razor from a dealer who is known for sharpening their razors before sending them out . Buy a strop at the same time , not a…
