Photosession!

Hey,

I'm quite excited, these are the pictures of a pro photo session of my work. Many thanks to Thomas at STUDIOBOLSTER. Check out his blog filet-pur.be !

Santoku Damascus knife.

Handle in Rosewood & Madagascar Ebony.
Blade Sandvik Swedish stainless steel 19C27 core with 45 layers of stainless damascus steel hardened to HRC60. Upper part of blade is traditional Japanese hand hammered "Tsuchime" which helps separate food when cut.





Next up is a camp knife I made.

Steel N690
Handle is dark purple canvas micarta, quite rare!
My very first attempt to make a sheath. Kydex  and leather joined, with firesteel attached.
This knife has seen a lot of heavy use in the woods, It used to have a mirror polish finish.




Damascus Khukuri knife

I bought the blade in Rajasthan India and made a handle for it.
The national knife and icon of Nepal, a basic and traditional utility knife, a formidable and effective weapon of the Gurkhas.
Steel is spring steel (They could not tell exactly what type). Rockwell Hardness is about the same as Global kitchen knives.
Handle is a combination of Wenge/Rosewood/Ebony




 Thanks for looking,

Dimi

Introducing myself

Hello,

I am a knife maker from Belgium.
Having collected & used knives for many years I decided to start making them myself.

The knives I make & collect are utility blades. They're made to be used in the field or kitchen but that's no reason for them to be ugly. I only use topquality steels & handle materials.

Grtz,

Dimi
