Hello friends, This is a new Davis Brothers knife, a Wood Carving #4 Detail Knife. The #4 is one of our longer and more slender patterns. It has a very slightly curved cutting edge and downcurved spine, with a fine tip. This is really a handy knife with an outstanding curved handle that feels great in the hand. This knife was hand forged by a carver, for carvers, right here on the Pacific Northwest Coast. Davis Bros., well known for high quality hand forged NW Coast style woodcarving tools, will make a limited number of some favorites. We make a wide selection of Crook or Crooked knives, Detail knives and Hook knives, as well as Chip Carving and Whittling knives. Detail knives are used in accompaniment with crook knives, as well as chip carving and other stock removal knives. WORKMANSHIP: Each knife is unique and hand crafted, with no automated processes used in the more than 30 machining, forging and woodworking tasks for each one. Some very fine tool marks may be visible on the knives. I do not attain absolute machinelike perfection, but strive to combine art, beauty and utility. The look and feel of this tool when held is beautiful, smooth, and inspires the work at hand. BLADE: It was made using 1095 high carbon blade steel, ground to shape then forged, refined and hardened. It was then tempered to keep a durable, keen edge and is extremely sharp. The blade profile has a slight curvature along the cutting edge which makes it relatively easy to sharpen. HANDLE: : The handle is Redheart, from Central America, with a rich red / brown color and darker grain patterns for a distinctive look. It is finished with hand rubbed natural Shellac and Carnauba wax, a benign and very durable finish. This handle fits sweetly in the hand, providing a comfortable grip and allowing it to be directed with precision. The complementary handle/blade combination makes a very attractive overall design. CONSTRUCTION: This knife is 8" overall, with a 2 1/4" long blade that is 7/16" wide before tapering to a fine point. The cutting edge is curved very slightly overall and curved gently at the tip. The blade is set with epoxy and further secured with two bronze rivets. CARVING CHARACTERISTICS: This knife will be so useful it will end up on your workbench most of the time. The blade is a little longer than most of our smaller knives and is ideal for carving and whittling in the round as well as roughing out of carvings. As the end is sharply pointed, It will also do cleanup, detail work and stop cuts. The curvature of the edge allows smooth curves to be cut while incising and slicing. With it's longer blade this knife works well to reach deep into a carving to get the final details cleaned up, and will reach neatly into a crevice. With a double bevel edge, this knife can be used with either hand, and cuts well either pushing or pulling. The blade has plenty of strength for these tasks, but should not be used for prying. For best performance, when sharpening this tool both sides should be sharpened. SAFETY FIRST! : This blade is extremely sharp. Always be aware of where you are cutting, and do not put hands, fingers or other parts of your body in the path of the blade. Always wear a cut-resistant carving glove on the hand not holding the knife. And please keep this knife safely away from children. SHIPPING AND CUSTOMER SERVICE: I have several auctions running this week , and will gladly combine shipping to save you money. Wait for the combined invoice if you have multiple purchases/wins. I offer a 30 day return policy and will personally work to resolve any issues. I strive for Quality and Customer Satisfaction.
