In this video I make a Knife out of Damascus steel, it’s an idea I came up with several months ago while cooking. The idea was to make a knife out of Damascus steel that also operates as a spatula to facilitate picking up chopped vegetables and food, and scraping off the cutting board. For this knife project, I used a piece of Damascus steel that was created by The Barefoot Forge, and the knife scales I used were created by Peter Brown! You can see Peter’s resin work at his channel Shop Time – Enjoy!

    This is exactly what I’d want with me cooking on the Line. I sharpen the edges of my griddle spatulas so I can cut with them.

    I think you missed a trick not calling it a Knitula 😂

    “I miss the old Diresta basement shop.”
    “I wish you still made things I can relate to.”
    “Must be nice to have sponsors.”
    “I wish Peter Brown would send me stuff.”
    “I wish Craig Cowan would send me stuff.”

    There… now everybody can find something else to say.

    Didn’t know that was a thing. That’s badass!

    I love how you’ve continued to grow as a maker, both in skill and shop size and continue to bring us a long for the ride.
    Same Jimmy style, but new and different techniques and projects. This reminds me of an oldschool DiResta ep, just a bit better!

    I don’t miss that dingy old basement shop one bit. It was cool, full of character, and gave us Spike… but it also had at least one rat mummy.
    Good riddance!

    Good for you Jimmy, this thing is gorgeous. Your knife game is steadily improving.

      Thank you for the love and respect ✊🏻🙏🏼

      @jimmydiresta No, Thank you!
      I found your videos after I got my right lung removed because of cancer. I still have cancer and I felt useless and really shitty and your videos inspired me to make stuff! For years now your videos have been inspiring to me to make and create and try new things, and it really made a difference in my life.
      When I saw that DiResta logo in a stolen video and searched it all those years ago it really opened my life up to the entire maker community. My mother has MS and together we make all kinds of stuff as a form of therapy and to supplement our income.

      So again. Thank you!
      I really mean it.

      P.S. Your logo/name spamming actually works. It helped me find you. It was the video where you made the metal “live edge” wood table with steel bark. It was so cool and unlike anything I’d ever seen! It’s years later, but just the other day I watched it again.. my very first DiResta video and it inspired me to buy my first welder finally. A cheap HF flux core welder, but it’s a start!

      Wish me luck? I’ve been afraid to weld for years, but I’m 27.. it’s time to man up and go for it!

    Honey, I’m hungry and tired, can you make dinner for me tonight?
    Diresta : alright I’ll be in the shop

    The the pattern on the blade! Classy! Unique handle! Brad Leone would be jealous!

    The DiResta chop ‘n’ flip, Damascus edition.

  9. craig swartz says:

    Why would you waste a perfectly good piece of Damascus on something cool and original?? I’ll never understand you jimmy diresta😂. Once you started chopping I thought for sure lasagna was on the menu to show us its serving prowess lol awesome like always

  10. Billiam McGonnagall says:

    Also perfect for cutting and serving pies! :oD

  11. dylan w says:

    I didn’t realize I needed one until now. Like right now. Send it over. Lol

  12. appv12 says:

    4:30 I thought “what the heck, isn’t he going to heat treat before normalizing.” I didn’t realize you had the worlds most insane electric forge. Nice man.

    • Skallheim says:

      The name of it is “oven” if i’m not wrong, it make all the piece heat at the same temperature, in all lenght, then, he can make a good normalize

      I guess it’s bettwr than a normal forge

    • kiroro pupper says:

      It’s a super fancy kiln.

  13. Bryson Alden says:

    You’re a brave man, peening the pins into micarta, and leaving the seeds in your peppers! Will the damascus scraps end up as ice picks?

  14. iDrake 360 says:

    “Thank You” should be at the end of every video from now on…

  15. Detective Dorian says:

    This being the first time I’ve ever watched your channel, I gotta be honest: When the video started going slow-motion when you were sanding the blade, I got really concerned.

    • Tom Murphy says:

      Same man!! I bet youre a wood turner? Its like were conditioned to go “oh oh, somethings going to go wrong at high speed!!” 🙂

  16. ListenerMustard says:

    Just came over from Peter Brown! He is quite right to praise you the way he did! You have a new subscriber! You are amazing ❣️

  17. Le'Jackal Creations says:

    I always love how the YouTube community seems to come together, at least who really apply themselves to it, and especially when you see your favorite YouTube’s crossover, or reference other you tubers you like, I watch a lot of different maker videos and see them reference not only other makers but other genres, on top of makers I watch some gamers and niche genres like stevemreinfo and the other day an electronic maker referenced Steve I don’t know why just tickles me

    • Rhys Aistrope says:

      Yeah old iron stomach Steve makes great videos the can eat just about everything including the vomlette XD

  18. J3Xtrom says:

    Here from Peter’s channel. I was really interested to see what you’d do with those knife scales. I was seriously confused with the shape of the whole knife, but it all made sense once I saw you pushing the onions off the cutting board lol. Beautiful work!

  19. Aash Martin says:

    When you said the razor blade is now available, I instantly paused the video and bought one

  20. Jon S says:

    The speed at which Jimmy can make knives is largely dictated by how quickly his arm hair grows
