To me, good kitchen cutlery is an investment, and I do really like our kitchen staff.
Remember that they have to cook for anything between 18 (Tours) and 30 people (Quest) at least twice a day, for two weeks in a row.

Even before I hardened the blade, I was not able to drill the holes in the handle, with normal HSS drills. Still figuring out how I'm going to to it now, after the blade has been hardened.

Jy kan hom altyd met epoxy plak, shape die handvatsel en dan strap jy hom met staal straps op die voor en agterkant van die handvatsel. Recess net die handvatsel effe waar jy die strap wil gebruik, maak vir jou twee staal straps (ringe) wat die regte vorm het, met die binne diameter effens kleiner as wat nodig is. As jy alles reg het dan maak jy die straps wit warm en kry hulle in plek en koel af. Dit sal nooit loskom nie.

Dankie Kortbroek. Ek het met 'n cobalt boor probeer en hy boor hierdie staal. Ongelukking het ek net 'n 2mm boortjie, maar sal 'n 4.5mm kry na die lockdown.

Hieronder 'n chopper/clever wat ek besig is om vir mamma te maak. Hy is klaar en kort ook net sy handvatsels. Hierdie ding sny en kap 'n hond uit bos uit!

Nice idea Oshkosh. I've done it successfully with old material as well as those coloured napkins/serviettes.

So, been wanting to give it a go for a long time. Lockdown helped with that, attempt no.1 in progress. Making two blades from an old leaf spring. Roughed them out with an angle grinder and then did the shaping on a bench grinder. From there I did the hollow grind with a hand file and a rough jig, which is why you'll notice I didn't get that 100%. Since then it's been a few hours of sanding by hand already and I reckon I have many hours of sanding to go still. Nice pastime on the stoep with a beer.

After I'm done sanding the file marks and rusty spots on the blades I need to clean up/bevel the spines, then polish both and put in the cutting edges. After that I'll drill the holes for handles, then do heat treatment (harden & temper), polish again, do the handles (I'm thinking either black locust wood which is nice and hard or maybe some cedar wood), then a final polish and sharpen.

I've made a few mistakes along the way but I had two main aims up to this point which was 1) see if I can get the angles on the hollow grind consistent and 2) try to get the cutting edge 100% centered. I've managed both of these, I have 1mm of meat left dead center on each blade where the cutting edge will go. This might be a bit beefy, I decided to go a little bit on the thick side and rather have to work a wider cutting edge giving me space to correct if I make mistakes.

I realise I keep saying hollow grind for the tapered face between the spine and the cutting edge, technically what I'm doing would be halfway between a flat grind or a sabre grind.

Look lekker Kortbroek. You'll save yourself a of time if you heat those blades to the point of them losing their magnetism, and then letting them cool. It will anneal the steel, making it softer and easier to work with. When you're done, you can heat treat and temper the blades to make them hard again.

Thanks. Ja I realised I should've annealed it before shaping and sanding. They're ready now to be heat treated when I have a moment. Then I need to make handles.

I gave it a go and made me a "my steak knife" old circular saw blade and some Kiaat and swart hout. No annealing or stuff, just grind and grind and.....  :biggrin:

How well does the knife work?

Also want to cut up old concrete cutting blades to make general purpose knifes without using heat treatment.

I had an old blade picked from a antique shop.  I never knew what to do with it and eventually decided to try and make a spear.

1st photo from the blade.

The results, still need some farckals but in two minds what to do.   :patch:
