The Cutting Edge

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.

Knife to Meet You

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.

All Ingredients Included

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.

    Awesome kit

    I'm an at home chef for my family and have a small collection of knives. This one will be a great addition to what I already have.

    Husband LOVED it!!!

    I purchased this kit for my husband for Valentine's day. He loved it and was so surprised that I found such an awesome gift that suited him perfect. It took him a few weeks before he got a chance to make it. But when he did, it turned out absolutely beautiful and makes the perfect kitchen knife. It's super sharp and we use it for all our cooking needs. ( He didn't know it was for me too. LOL) I made him promise not to go on your website because I am planning on another knife making set for our anniversary in May.

    Chef knife kit

    High quality materials and kit includes everything you need to complete a professional quality knife. I had two minor problems in assembling my knife.
    1. The vice has a problem with the ball joint. There is a mold line on the ball that protrudes above the surface of the ball. This interferes with the smooth functioning of the joint. A little filing to smooth it will fix it.
    2. The scales provided are way too big, necessitating a LOT of grunt work filing them down. Best to mark the outline of the tang, leaving an extra 1/4” or so. Then trim the scales with a hacksaw or other fine toothed saw, then glue the scales in place.
