Chef knife project.


Well-Known Member
My uncle has asked me for a chef knife. I was thinking of doing some file work to make it look fance on the spine of the handle. But on second thought that work cause a hot spot in your hand while working. Or am I over thinking this.

Also if anyone knows a place I may look up simple designs for file work if you could just leave that in the comments I would be so appreciative.

My only suggestion would be that if you do file work on a kitchen knife, make sure the pattern has no deep pockets or narrow slots and crevices. You don't want anywhere for food/fat/oils/etc to get into. Bacteria will find it and fester in those pockets.
