My kitchen has every kind of knife you could possibly ever need or use and a lot of them are handmade by my husbands Uncle Holl. The knives stay sharp but most of them are larger knives so I have to buy smaller paring knives. I usually buy them online at LEM’s and they are a very good quality knife. Here are some photos of the knives that Uncle Holl made:
We have two knives that a friend of ours made and the handle is made from a deer antler and the jaw bone of a black bear. The paring knife fits my hand perfectly and the one from the bear jar will be place in the living room on an easel for everyone to see.
Just goes to show you can re-purpose almost anything.
