Channel your inner blacksmith to create a unique knife blade and handle for tackling curved cuts.
Our Creative Director, Chris Fitch, serves as both our resident carving expert and blacksmith, so this knife project quickly sparked his curiosity. There are really two mini projects inside each knife: making the curved blade and then the handle. Chris found a simple blademaking solution for those of us who don’t have a full blacksmith shop. The wood handle offers up some solid carving practice on its own. There are three handle patterns shown here that you can choose from. The key is to spend a little time whittling, filing, or sanding the handle to suit your hand and comfort.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
