In the last 20 years, I have gotten some Japanese/Asian inspired designs from working chef's, and feel it is time I put a page together showing those designs. I do not work with forged Japanese style blue steel, but with high carbon tool steel. It is the kind that is used in the blue steel ‘sandwich’ in some classic Japanese style food knives. It is used in the middle for the cutting edge. Please specify when you order, if you want an Asian style handle or a western style handle. Default handles are Asian with all Asian designs.
All knives have 5-1/4" long handles. Brass is 3/4" wide x 3/8" thick.

Top photo: 4 piece Korean style large kitchen knife
that was custom made as a Xmas gift . Length is 8 inch
and width is 3 inch. These are 1/16th thick, which is
my standard thickness. I can also work with 3/32"
inch, for an additional cost. These also come with
singles bolsters, and the
cost quoted is for singles
bolsters. If you want to see this style of kitchen
knife in action, see the fantastic Korean TV series
called "Dae Jang Geum".
