Kitchen Knives by Neilson's Mountain Hollow

Here is an assortment of Kitchen Knives I've been working on and feel are ready to be added to my line of knives. I've had a lot of folks who really enjoy my work want something for general kitchen use so here we go... I hope you like them.


 "Asian-Style Kitchen Knives"

These Asian style kitchen knives have a bit of tradition to them and a whole lot of my own influence. All three of these blades are made from my 400 plus layer "forced random" pattern damascus forged from 1095 and 15N20 high carbon steels. The Sujihiki-style (top) has a chisel grind and a 7 7/8" cutting edge (13" oal), the Kiritsuke-style (middle) has a double grind and a 7 1/4" cutting edge (12 1/2" oal) and the Pettsuki-style (bottom) also has a double grind and a 4 7/8" cutting edge (9 3/4" oal). All three knives have fullered "button" guards with my "antiqued" finish and beveled, 2 piece wooden handles. The handles themselves are stabilized and multi-dyed Presentation-grade Maple Burl wood with throats/spacers of matching stabilized and single dyed Maple Burl wood with an etched carbon steel set pin in each towards the back of the handles.

Price for a similar set of three: $5,025.00 


Saw-blade "Butcher" Knife...in Cocobola

The blade has my "antiqued" finish for a great look and easy maintenance (also helps prevent corrosion) and the handle scales are set with stainless steel handle bolts. The knife here is shown with Cocobola wood handle scales.

OK, it's time to show those Delmonicos who's boss. Here's a new style steak knife from my mountain forge to your dinner table. These full-tang steak knives are forged from 400 layer high carbon damascus steel done in a "random" pattern. The profile is similar to my scandi-bushcraft knives but, these knives have full bevels/grinds. The handle scales are A-grade Desert Ironwood Burl and are secured with stainless steel handle bolts. These knives, like all of my full-tang damascus pieces have etched tangs all the way around the handle. Feel free to inquire about a single knife or a whole set (as shown) to match your needs.
