Re: Show Your Home Kitchen!

my parents gifted me one of those stainless steel overhead racks you can mount on the wall. Its been great hanging our pans and wine glasses. We have also decided to do away with the cabinets but dont really have a plan yet. Looking forward to seeing some of these ideas.

Re: No handle knives

if anyone of you are unable to find just the right knife in a no handle configuration you can always just order a custom that way if you dont mind a bit of a wait.

The edge geometry is a gentle convex from spine to edge. about .007 thick behind the edge itself. There is also a full distal taper allowing for a very fine ...

This handle was the most comfortable (to me) ive done. With a kitchen knife though, id probably lose t...

Re: New line for CKTG store

Yes, one piece maple handles. The dye I use does not penetrate very deep. some of my final sanding was done after they were dyed and oil was applied. Next batch I am trying some aqua fortis instead of dye.
