In a world boasting “Seen on TV” Slice n’ Dice Machines, Wombo Combo Fruit Juicers, and self sharpening spatulas, it can be tough to know which kitchen utensils are grade A and which are woefully undercooked.
But anyone who’s seen MacGyver knows the only tools worth trusting are the ones built by hand —sometimes two trembling hands dangling from a cliff or trapped in an elevator with a timebomb.
And while most of us ditched our mullets by the late 90s, the wisdom still holds true. The Chef Knife Making Kit proves that if you want something made right, meals included, you’ve got to make it yourself.
While MacGyver made do with coat hangers and chewing gum, the Chef Knife Making Kit opts for sharper, more dependable materials. Forged of VG-10 Damascus steel, the mere sight of this blade will cause a steak to carve itself out of fear.
The stylish Micarta handles are ready to be sculpted into personalized, palm-gripping perfection. The finished product will be as intricately layered as a fennel avocado bean dip, and every bit as distinctive as the chef who made it.
The kit comes stuffed with various rasps and files, a portable bench vise, and enough sandpaper to take the green off a watermelon. It's also a great excuse to dust off the ol' power tools hanging in the garage. And with our step-by-step instruction booklet, crafting this knife will be as effortless as cooking with it.
The Chef Knife Making Kit is just what the modern day Michelangelo of meat needs to carve up the next five-star entree.
In an awesome cardboard box (NOT A CRATE). Corrugated C Flute cardboard with regular slotted style...told you it was awesome!

This is an incredible knife. Does it take some serious elbow grease to make? Absolutely. Man up. But if you're smarter than I am, place the Micarta handles close to the edge of the tang when assembling to make it easier when filing/sanding so you only really need to file/saw one edge instead of two. Regardless of how you assemble it, just think of the end product when you're filing your a$$ off. It's totally worth it. This knife has great balance, an incredibly sharp blade, and best of all the handle is custom formed to your paw. I highly recommend this for any MAN who enjoys chefery.
