Default The Best Marking Knife Ever

Last Thursday, I received the most beautiful marking knife made by Michael Kellough. He heat treated the metal which is O1 and made the handle out of Ebony. The geometric design that he used is just truly wonderful. Michael is amazingly talented and I am so lucky to have this beautiful knife.

How about a picture or two more of the marking knife?

Thanks for the compliments guys. I was aiming for something unique that wouldn't roll off the table. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out (in the nick of time due to some technical problems). I'll post a few pics soon.

Yes - that is one beautiful knife. Maybe it's time to go into business, Michael...

BTW that third picture is me rolling out the pasta, with Scott helping (he's drinking Scotch and keeping me company - much appreciated!). In the second picture you can see John washing tomatoes for the caprese salad, with Michael in the background.

But you really have to hold that knife to appreciate how wonderful it is. And there was a small one, too.

Thanks, Fred. And I love the paper towel background.

This seems like an original design; certainly I've never seen one like it.

The taper of the handle is such that it would resist being pulled out of your hand in use. Not that the forces involved would make that happen, it just seems that it would actually feel more secure in use.

Michael

Are you taking orders? What would be the cost? How many orders do you need to get the production line rolling?
