Pictured here with an additional knife he also made for me, it is a big, beautiful, 10 inch Chefs knife with a handle made of several different exotic woods. The blade is razor sharp, made from High Carbon Stainless Steel. The blades are hardened and tempered. Once an edge is ground into them they keep it! Let me tell you.. this knife is sharp, but a sharp knife is a safe knife! You use less pressure when you cut, giving you more control. With a dull knife you'll use an unnecessary amount of pressure to compensate for the lack of sharpness of the blade, this results in a lack of control and a greater likelihood you'll injure yourself!
I don't think I could begin to list the array of knife styles Bob makes here, but he makes all types, not just the culinary type I have pictured here. My Husband is getting a Bowie knife from him shortly, and I won't be using that in the kitchen!
