Bar-B-Que Knives I made for me; if anyone has known me for any length of time you know that the Jankowski’s are Bar-B-Que pit masters. This is the first time in my shop since my mini vacation and I thought I’d make me. I made a small cleaver and a slicer. Both are Slack Belt grinded Blades meaning the blades are concaved. It’s the strongest grind known to man. It will outperform other grinds because of the geometry of the blade however each grind has its specific purpose. I designed these blades not only slicing buy also chopping. For you new knife makers I suggest you study knife geometry so you know what I’m talking about; each blade should be ground for its intended purpose.
Each is 1084, 60 HRC, 1/4" thick. I'll put the handles on tomorrow.

I'm not sure yet; I have a 75 quart Igloo cooler full of wood I can use. I'll dig around it in the morning. I'm leaning to African Ebony, not sure yet. I might even dig around my bone and micarta drawer to see if something sparks my interest.

Mesquite for the Bar-B-Que knives; seems befitting.

Correction on the grind; I made a mistake, autocorrect gets me in trouble sometimes. Its a convex grind or Moran Grind, some call it slack belt grind. not a concaved grind. I like that grind for choppers and bush craft knives.. Sorry, for the mistake. (I'm old) laugh
