Story

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.

    Christmas present

    Good quality knife materials. The file definitely not sufficient but since knife making from scratch is my hobby, I just switched to my own. Otherwise it would have taken forever.

    Tools need improvement

    My wife had bought this for me for Christmas I love working on the knife, the problem I have is the vice doesn't hold the still while trying to work on it. The mechanism that is use to hold the pivot ball barely holds it in place. The carriage bolt bottoms out on the tightening nut lever. I also have a problem with the rasp that was supplied, the side opposite of the half round course side is somewhat unusable due the course side going into the edge of the flat side. I can't wait till I get it finished.

    Chef ok’d!

    I gave this to my husband who is a chef at a big time restaurant and he loved it! He started working on it the second he opened it. The blade is very nice quality. I am still waiting to see the finished product but I am sure it will be great. The only con is since I paid so much it would have been nice to come in a crate!

    Chef Knife

    I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He's always wanted to make a knife so I thought this would be fun without having to invest in a forge! He is also a very good cook so what better than a chef knife. He had so much fun putting this knife together! It is absolutely the most beautiful knife we have and it is so sharp I'm almost afraid to use it! I would recommend this gift to everyone!

    My Bloody Valentine

    My girlfriend gave me this + the bloody mary crate for Valentines day. She called it My Bloody Valentine. Gotta love a girl like that!! Its a great knife and i like that you can shape it to your grip. I made it slighly D shaped which i think is more comfortable. I also put a little mineral oil on it to help bring out the color. A+ and a knife i can call my own.
