The top half of this page has various handle add-on options/prices.
These handle add-on’s cost extra (like bacon on your burger) over and above the cost
of the kitchen knife. Kitchen knife prices are ⇓ at the bottom part of this page.  Prices include choice of wood and bolsters with a carbon steel blade.
Add-ons cost extra, above the prices listed on this page.


A bolster is between the blade and the handle wood and protects the handle wood from absorbing water from the end grain of the handle wood. Water will be soaked up like a sponge without protection.
I use either brass or copper bolsters (3/4″ x 3/8″) , which are pinned/rivets and glued onto the blade steel.

Copper or brass bolsters – copper bolsters cost $20 per knife. Brass bolsters are included in the price of any kitchen knife.

Stainless bolsters – $45.00 per knife. These are secured usually with nickel silver pins or stainless pins. Cost is so high as stainless is rock hard and must be sanded before adding wood handles and spacers- adds.

Copper or brass rivets on handle and bolsters – Each handle has 4 rivets. Butt rivet is my personal chop and is on every knife I make.
There are also 3 more rivets per handle and two per bolster. You can get either brass or copper rivets in each handle which will be in the handle wood. If your bolsters are copper – you can get copper or brass pins.
Brass will contrast with copper and copper of course will blend in. Same with Brass bolsters.
See photo below for an illustration of this. If you do not care, I will always use the same material that the bolster is made of, on the rest of the knife.
Below – brass rivets with copper bolsters contrasting look. See top photo below (carving set next photo down) ) to view brass bolsters with brass rivets and stabilized Redwood.

Bolster spacers
 are between the brass bolsters and the wood.
I stock 2 thicknesses of bolster material – 1/8″ and .030 thick along with various thicknesses of stabilized burled hard wood.

Cost of bolster spacers, of either 1/8″ thick or .030 or combinations –
1 insert for $20.00
2 inserts for $30.00
3 inserts for $40.00
4  inserts for $60.00


Stabilized wood

If you want stabilized wood, I now offer stabilized Redwood for $5.00 to ordering clients. This charge covers cost of shipping and stabilizing my Redwood at a company in Arizona that does this.  I consider Redwood a dark wood. If you want a different stabilized dark wood, or a light wood then tell me and I can send you some sensible options. There is a charge if I need to deal with ‘out of the shop wood’. Extra cost to you for using of of the shop wood is $20, plus the full cost of the stabilized wood you choose and shipping cost to me.


Bed spacers are strictly .030 thick only. I have black, red or white in stock, but there are some other colors that can be ordered, if they exist. Just ask and we can see if I can order it.

Bed spacers run horizontally below the wood, your choice of colors:

1 spacer – $25.00 per knife
2 spacers – $32.00
3 spacers – $45.00

I also work with O-1 tool steel (1095) in two thicknesses only – 5/64 and 3/32 thick. Price depends on the size of the kitchen knife, so if your interested, drop me a note.
My in shop steel is 1/16″ thick, which can also be figured math wise as either 4/64 and 2/32 thick, 1084 tool steel. Thicker steel adds some weight to the knife. Feel free to call or email to discuss options.


These prices listed below, cover my basic kitchen knife: carbon steel blade with in shop local hardwood handle and brass bolsters custom made for you. As seen in photo below.
