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.

    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.

    Fantastic Christmas Present

    Wow! Just received the Damascus Steel Chef Knife crate for Christmas. This is the best gift ever. I've always been interested in knives and knife making but do not have the equipment or skills to forge my one. This kit allows you to experience part of the creative process and comes complete with everything you need to make a beautiful (and super high quality) Damascus steel chef knife. I will begin making mine tomorrow. I highly recommend this high quality kit for anyone looking to give that unique jaw-dropping gift, or a gift for that creative person in your life.

    At A Glance...

    Got this for the Mister as a Christmas present so he hasn't seen it yet, BUT I opened to make sure all the goodies were there (they are) and I was very impressed with the quality of the knife blade itself and the set of hand tools. When the accessory box seemed to have some weight to it, I knew they were well made. I can't wait until he opens it and gets going on it. Definitely will be back in a couple months for a hands on review.
