The top quality, high carbon tool steel in these blades makes a superior cutting tool in the kitchen. While stainless cutlery can be handy nothing cuts better in the kitchen than high-carbon tool steel. This is O1 tool steel, the same steel weve been using in our plane blades (and the knives in our kitchen) for decades. Yes, these knife blades are made from the same steel at the same hardness that youve come to value and rely on in Hock Tools woodworking blades. Now you can appreciate how easily it sharpens and how sharp it can get in your own kitchen. A little care will help prevent corrosion - wash and dry after each use and never put them in the dishwasher. Sharpen often and lightly - your new knives will be treasured for generations.
These blades are sold without handles and include 3 steel pins.
- Drill press with ¼" bit
- Bandsaw, jigsaw or coping saw
- 2 or 3 Clamps (C-type or spring)
- Belt sander
In addition to this kit you will need:
- Two pieces of knife handle material approximately ¼" x 1¼" x 5"
- Epoxy (avoid the five-minute formulas)
