I haven’t posted in a while. Still been working on lots of stuff, but just haven’t been able to take photo’s or write as often as I would enjoy being able to. Ashley and I have welcomed a new crew member! Dale is a wonder and a highlight of everyday. Keep an eye out for more changes to come. – Greg

  1. Congratulations! Next month Dale gets his first hammer. hahaha. Nice job on the Kiridashi. I had to look up what kind of knife it was. 🙂 I think the handle thru the blade is a unique and interesting touch. Great Job!

    1. I’m no expert but as I understand it they’re a sort of Japanese utility knife often single beveled used for many things but associated with cooking and wood working. I made it participating in a “Knife in the hat” group where makers of all skill level are sharing and trading. It’s actually rather humbling. I’ll be sure to post the knife I’m lucky enough to receive!

  2. That Kiridashi is very very sweet! I just love it. I made one from the tang end of a file it turned out pretty well.

    Is yours single bevel? mostly? Riveting the tang into the blade is brilliant. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    1. Hi Jack. Thanks for the compliment, I docked over at your blog for a minute and you seem to know more than a thing or two about these little knives. Keep at it!

      Mine was a single bevel with a distal taper that I don’t think is common of these tools.
