    Hock Kitchen Knife Kits

    I have known about these new knife kits for about a month now. It finally dawned on me that they may be several here that would be interested. You can find them at various places on the web, but the following link is to Tools for Working Wood, because they have a great write-up on them and they are a good company. For those of us on the Left Coast, I am sure that Craftsman Studio will be carrying them soon.

    I am thinking of getting the kits myself and giving it a try.

    I'd be all over it if they had a 10" chef knife kit. Must be a reason for the 8" only, but....

    These kits have been very popular and you are not the only one wanting a longer chef knife. I suspect that they will be offering one in the future. The 8" will more in line with what my wife is interested in. I think I will start with the paring knife first.

    I'm just so used to using the 10" knife, I'm not interested in going the 8" route. 10", Heck, I'd be buying these like crazy and giving them as gifts to family.

    If you can settle for 9 3/4", you might try Texas Knifemaker's Supply...

    I've been very pleased with the blades I've bought from them, especially their Cyro line.

    They have a pretty extensive line of camp and kitchen blades (among others)...

    Their mosaic pins are also very cool...

    When I was growing up, there was an old wives tail that said something to the effect.... "it's bad luck to give a knife as a gift, the recipient should give the donor a penny in return"...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Those look very tempting Vaughn! On the 'want' list now!

    Chuck, My grandma gave me a knife one time, along with a penny. I'm sure there was some reason for it, I just can't remember what it was. Probably was along those lines though.

    That looks like fun!!! Maybe the next evolution of pens; it was ironic that they have pen kits. Thinking a DVD purchase may be in order.

    I do have to say though, As much as I'd like to make some scales and put together a knife, I'd just prefer to buy them from Hock, so I'll be patient for a while and see what happens...

    My El Cheapo Cooka illustrated Fibrox knives still work fine, so I don't really have a need. Really a serious want, and some knife envy, but the ones I have actually work great and take a pretty good edge and I'm not afraid to let sharon abuse them.
