Hey guys. I found a picture of some knives I would like to create, but would like some help finding the blades. Has anyone seen anything like this:

I bought some knife blades from ragweed forge… don’t have time to look it up right now but I’m sure google will find it.

There are plenty of places to get knife blades but for something that specialized you are probably going to have to make your own. You can get tool steel from McMaster Carr.

I don’t think this is what you are looking for but the japanwoodworker.com has knife kits. They even got
Hock knife blades. Yes the same steel as hock plane blades.

You are not going to find knife blades like those anywhere. For one it is a “prototype design”. For another, it is a terrible design. I don’t mean visually, but functionally. Knives have to be thin to cut well. A really thick knife might be 4mm wide at the spine, and a good one is only 2mm wide. Wood won’t stand up to repeated use at that thickness.

They look neat but I have to agree that functionally they are gimmicky. Wood is more work to maintain and less functional as a blade, the cleaver would be too light weight.
