Product Description

Chef Knife Kit 205 mm

 Make your own full-sized chef knife with this 205 mm (8 1/16") blade.

The blade is made in Japan of 8A Stainless steel and has a long flat profile and an extra long handle for chefs with large hands.

The kit consists of 

  • Chef fulltang blade, light and delightful to work with ( 205 mm edge, 356 mm overall)
  • Solid wood scales (see options)
  • Optional: Vulcanized fibre spacer material 
  • Optional: Corby bolts in either brass or stainless steel (set of 4 bolts)


The chef knife kit can be completed with simple hand tools.

  • Epoxy the handle scales to the knife blade, with fibre spacer between steel and wood
  • Shape scales with belt sander, file or similar
  • Smooth scales with sand paper, minimum to 1200 grit
  • Optional: seal handle scales with oil, wax or similar


Note the long handle on this blade, our Scandinavian imported scales are too small. Included are Australian Yellow Box Burl scales in extreme grade. These look amazing but have some cracks and inclusions as often is the case with burl wood. Be careful with drilling and fill cracks with super glue or epoxy resin if not able to exclude the natural cracks and voids. Each set of scales are larger than the tang of the blade and will provide a good set of scales. However some filling of holes with glue before drilling and working will be necessary.

Most of the standard length scales will not fit this blade, so you will get either a longer set of scales where available in the type of wood, or a large block you can saw in two lengthwise.
