Paring Knife Advice?
« on: March 18, 2017, 04:20:35 AM »
Does anyone have any experience and/or advise in forging paring knives? Doing a little research, some have a slight curve to the cutting edge and others lack a belly at all by having a flat cutting edge similar to the edge on a marking knife.  ???  Perhaps I am overthinking a tool devised to cut a mere tomato

I like my paring knives with a drop point, decent belly and approx 7 - 9cm blade length.

Looking forward to seeing your finished product.

Cleaned up bevels and started to polish . Now I just need to machine a ferrule with a handle stem on the lathe and attach a wooden segment.
 Oh and the profile was modified to a slight drop in the point.
