Curious what dark woods I am using these days ? I just got in some grand high figured Black Walnut wood, graded 5A – with swirls, figure and deep chatoyance. Just like the wood I used on this commissioned set shown below. Cost of Walnut is included in knife price. Stabilized Redwood is also in stock, at $20 per knife.

I am a full-time maker of hand made high carbon steel Western and Asian inspired kitchen knives, unique to myself. Most of my time is spent on commission work, but when I have time, I make kitchen knives to my own designs and techniques, and ⇒list them on my kitchen knives in stock page⇐.
