There's a pair of brothers who frequent our local Farmers Market and come from Nottingham NH. They make custom knives, cutting boards and other wooden products.

I stopped by their tent this morning and saw the real craftsmanship of their knives up close and personal and this beautiful Damascus Boning Knife followed me home. Here are the specs:
Hand Forged Colin MacCrea 15n20 blade with hamon line
Bloodwood Saya for blade protection
Handle: Desert Ironwood
Pins: Copper Mosaic 1/4 inch
Spacer Material: white g10
Bolster: Hand Poured pewter
banjo

Lol, I use an iPad Pro most of the time and am sure if I turned my beast on which has a 37" screen the knife would be well over 2' but it's less tha 4" long on the iPad Pro's screen but I can vouch for the dimensions I gave Ozark Wizard since that's the lengths of what is in the knife drawer. Wink

Here is some of the other members that of the fold. My custom Chefs knife was made by west coast Bladesmith Michael Rader he was chosen as Bladesmith of the year when I had received it, fantastic and extremely functional Damascus Blade.

Then I had a French style knife made by knife maker Ray Banks which is Damascus as well.

I also picked an early Sabatier for $1 at the thrift shop.

My bread knife is a Shun Classic Damascus Bread Knife.

For breaking things down and heavy duty chopping is this Randall Chefs Knife.

Plus I've picked up a few Wüsthof and Henckels slicing and paring knives at local yard sales.

Banjo, thanks for sharing!! Awesome looking knife you picked up recently and I also like the others posted, being a knife person myself. I surely miss working on and making knives.

Sante: Did you know world renowned pipe maker, Rolando Negoita, is making Chef's Knives? Maybe you can get him to do a matching "Pipe and Knife" set? king

DoverPipes, really appreciate you posting this video. I had no idea this outstanding pipe maker also made knives. As a former knife maker I enjoyed this video immensely.
Now he needs too also make some fixed blade hunting knives, those will surely sell immediately!!

He does!!!
He makes fixed blade, folders, Ulus with cutting boards, pipe knife / tools, tampers  etc.
He made me this slip joint folder from a re-purposed lawn mower blade. The scales are carbon fiber.

Thanks for sharing the picture. Now I'm going to do some research on the maker. Oh, old lawn mower blades when heat treated and forged make great knife blades...60 to 62 HRC. Also old car leaf spring metal. One of my personal favorites is a knife I made from an old rasp, much work to achieve the proper HRC once you anneal the steel, it must then be re-tempered, but well worth it at the end. The file knife holds the best edge out of all of my knives, and I have many. One can actually shave with this knife, I have!

Wow, just wow!

Some seriously beautiful blades in this post. I have always had a week spot for damascus blades.
