Over 450 different patterns can be seen on my Patterns page, and the Featured Knife pages describe hundreds of individual knives.
The following dozen illustrations point out and describe various hand knife components and areas.
It's easy enough to identify specific components and their location (like the point of the blade), other knife parts are more generalized to an area (like the grind).
In keeping with my commitment to service in my tradecraft and art, it is my goal to create the best single knife maker site on the internet, and it's all thanks to you: the public viewer, knife enthusiast, and aficionado.
You don't make several thousand knives in a career without a lot of experience, thought, and details.
Thanks for being here and sharing the voyage into monoglotistic indulgence! A blade and handle are the obvious terms that generalize the knife as a hand knife.
