These are cool! I started on my first Kitchen knives about a year ago and finally got around to finishing them just before Christmas as a present for our friends. I also made the knife block. It's from Black Walnut and Red Oak. The knives are CPM 154. The cleaver/chopper is a design I saw on the forums a while back. I think Mr. Wommack was the designer and called his the 'Pokechoppa'. The handle is dyed Tiger Stripe Maple and I used a CA finish on it. The steel on this one is 5/32. The Chef knife has a Acrylyster(spelling?) handle. First and last time I'll use it! The paring knife has Blue G10 over a White G10 liner. Both the Chef's knife and Paring knife are .103.
