EDK with Hardwood

Hello Folks,

Today I have some more EDK knives done. These have beautiful hardwood handles made of Morado, sometimes called Bolivian Rosewood. Not a true rosewood but lovely nevertheless, it is dense and heavy. I am told it is sustainably harvested which is always a plus and hopefully that is true. The grain and figure vary widely on these and don't expect bookmatched handles or anything that fancy...however, ALL these knives are gorgeous and it's just about killing me to actually have to part with any of them. Sigh, I do love nice wood! :D

These wood handles have been lightly oiled with food grade mineral oil and I recommend you do so periodically to keep them nice. There are a number of other food grade products available for maintaining fine wood and I will be testing some as time goes on. At any rate, as with the black handled EDKs, hand wash only and towel dry.

These are slightly more than the synthetic handled EDKs, $125 each plus shipping. As before, insured shipping is $10 and International will ship via Express Mail for $26. Thanks for stopping by!

First wave is sold out, thank you! I will have more very soon. ;)

Gah wish I had a bit more spare dosh at the moment, if I bought one of these I'd really have to use it in the Kitchen and I just cannot justify that much for a kitchen knife right now! If only I could afford two, one to put away in the safe and one to use! :)

Who needs a bank account anyway, I should just have my paycheck deposited directly to Peter.

SpikeT said...

I got a woody! I mean....wait.....never mind. :(

Gary said...

OMG! I was kicking myself for missing the first batch on Sunday. Actually glad I did, since I did manage to get one of these oh so lovely hardwood ones. They look spectacular Peter, can't wait to use it in the kitchen. Thanks so much for another most splendid Atwood product.

Damn haircut!! I checked before she started cutting on me and no sale, but when she finishes they're already sold out. No more haircuts for me!

Simply awesome, Peter. I caught the first sale link this weekend but had a total Pay Pal snafu trying to buy from my phone... I guess karma gave me another chance and I'm so happy to grab one with the wood handles. What's even better is I can "give" this to my foody wife, and now I can say that she's into Atwood's too -- see, honey this is just for you ;-) Woot!

How could I miss this! I hope you do a signup sale for at least one or two of these EDK runs (or that I get lucky one of these days.)

niteHawk said...

Def LOVE these.. insomuch that both my son and I cook a lot, and his wustoff is still too heavy for him (hey he's only 8 :-)) I think this would be the perfect knife for him.

Kemtitec said...

Peter, these are awesome. Might there ever be an Atwood "Sashimi" knife?

Knogis said...

SWEET, got one.
Can´t wait to try it, as a former chef i´m very picky about knifes. The steel is no doubt excellent, let´s see how the shape works.

Paul V. said...

Very nice, guys! Congrats to the lucky ones. I was crowing about getting one of the black handles, not knowing the wood was coming out. I love a beautiful piece of wood. I shouldn't be surprised. Peter always seems to top himself.

Paul V. said...

Got the black one toady, and I've got to say I'm impressed. I'm no chef or anything, but the balance is great and Peter's right about the blade geometry. I just butterflied some shimp and I liked it very much. Sharp enough to shave the hair off my arm afterword. I'm real curious to see how long the edge lasts like Peter was talking about. I do like the thickness of the blade. Not too thin, not too thick. Pretty perfect EDK!

Received my EDK w/Hardwood today as well as a G1 prybaby I found online. Old school & New school... Both way cool!

Kemtitec said...

There is a "Bug Out Bar" on Ebay for 300.00. Location Singapore". The Atwood stamp look strange. Is this a fake?

Peter Atwood said...

No, that is an original BOBar.

Indy Fab fan said...

what a beauty! mine arrived yesterday. almost too pretty to use. thank you for your master craftsmanship.

Robert said...

I just received the Atwood EDK knife today.

Wow! My wife loves it.

Thanks, Peter.

Any other sharps coming up? Thanks Gary :>)

I love steak..and steak knives! I have a couple of custom sets of 4. Used my black EDK tonight on a juicy ribeye and it worked to perfection...now I can't stop thinking how to get 3 more of these. Peter, any chance of a nice matched set? I am a woodworker and would be happy to supply the case.
