It's been some time since I last postet, but I've been working on some stuff, especially kitchen knives that I wanted to share. I'd like to get you fine gentlemens opinion on the overall design. I also spent quite some time on making these magnetic knife blocks you see in the pics. The magnets are inside of the wood, so the knife can rest on a flat wooden surface.
This is my aequilibrium design. Satin finished blade. Hidden tang handle construction with press fit paper micarta bolster, bronze and vulcanised fiber liners and three different beautiful pieces of stabilized wood:
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.
How thick do you make the wood inbetween the blade and magnet? Do you have any issues with the knife not sticking well or with the wood coming loose?
