Crooked Knives

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.
