Set of five carving knives that I made, base on Japanese design.
I made the carving knives, to do some wood carving that I been working on. The blades are made from 5160 steel scavenged from car suspension spring and the handles are made from oak wood. The blades dimension vary from 35mm up to 55mm and the handles are all 120mm.
Some of the blades shape work very well and some not. I think the blades that are not working for me, are rather Japanese in style. They probably use it in a deferent way then i do. If you hold it wrong it tend to cut your finger which is less the desirable. The more western style blade work very well.
As you can see, I didn’t use one of the blades, as its shape is curve and I can’t sharpen it with the tools that I got. Maybe I got the tools but I don’t know how to use it. so any advice will do.
