Woody’s Handmade Knives - quality wood handles knives for generations to come!
I begin with a block of wood and a sheet of steel and 126 individual procedures later I have a new "Woody" ready to go. I prefer 1095 high carbon steel and Alabama high carbon Damascus. Using my proven methods the results are consistent. After profiling each blade is coal fired, oil quenched and placed in a tempering oven for two cycles. I "punch" (Rockwell test) a representative sample of each run of blades I fire to confirm that they are falling into a range of 56 to 58 on the Rockwell hardness scale. A blade so tempered will hold a fine edge but it isn't so hard that the average person can't sharpen it. Yes, each knife is individually hand made and no two are alike. They really work and have an authentic, American made organic quality that can only be achieved with old fashioned materials and processes. Thanks again to all the users of my knives. I'm open to feedback and suggestions as to how I might improve the work
