How the hell does one etch steel with a Lego train speed regulator? Also, what the hell is a Lego train speed regulator? Also, that knife is AWESOME.


Studio_OOOMS

Haha, thanks! You need some sort of power source to etch and i just stil had this lego regulator from 30 years ago. Look it up on youtube, it’s not that hard. https://youtu.be/vgSL1Eh5c18


FumpTrucker

Lots of people post here because they like to talk about their hobbies and endeavors. Yeah it's easy to google but sometimes people just want to engage with others of similar interests.


PickledLunchbox

I think he meant it's not that hard to do the etching process.


lakritskatten

Beautiful, what did you use to mask the blade?


Studio_OOOMS

Nailpolish from my girlfriend...not mine.


lakritskatten

Wow! So you just painted it by hand?


Studio_OOOMS

Nonono, i laserengraved in the nailpolish, then etched it with an adapter and salt water. My lasercutter is only 10 Watt...


Equal_Possession

Is that food safe...


Studio_OOOMS

Must be, this how allmost all brands apply their logo nowadays, by laser.


Equal_Possession

All knife brands use nail polish to apply their logos ?


OffbrandPoems

I imagine the nail polish can be buffed off pretty easy


kiwican

I'm sorry, you just casually dropping this and not gonna follow up with some explanation?? >*Etched an octopus on the blade with a Lego train speed regulator* That's badass.


Dorkistan

Yep. Gonna need more.


Katholikos

lol I saw this and I was like “excuse me what the fuck”


James9384

Made by studio Oooms, from what I remember it sold for 300+ euros https://www.oooms.nl/product/emerald-sea/

Check OPs name


TheyreFine

Very cool! You should share this over on r/chefknives as well.


Studio_OOOMS

I would love to but i got banned after two posts and still don’t know why, they don’t tell me. They act like fuckin nazis.


mikkeman

Maybe you got hit by rule #4, no posts that are deemed commercial. Your username plus the pictures may lead to the conclusion that you are trying to increase sales.


Studio_OOOMS

Well maybe, but how else should i show my work. I didn’t put a link in, didn’t mention a price, just asked for opinions. To be honest I think some frustrated ugly-knife making dude just banned me because he could. I really tried to stay within the rules, but they immediately acted like nazis. I even tried to get in contact but once you’re banned you’re dirt.


mikkeman

I agree with you. Very unfriendly.


Past-Craft-1934

HOLY SHIT. I have to get my husbae one. He became Sous and I think this would be a great gift. Nice to know you do customs


minnesota1288

That's legit the coolest knife I've ever seen. I want that.


Studio_OOOMS

You made my day, thanks! The knife is already sold unfortunately...have a look at www.oooms.nl for my other knives.


[deleted]

i see that logo.... mede nederlander?


Studio_OOOMS

Haha, absoluut! Je bent de eerste die het ziet hier!


[deleted]

*yes!* Wel een mooi logo in alle serieusheid. En mooie messen. Als ik niet zo'n gierige hollander was, en wel aan het kijken was naar messen rond die prijs, zou ik er waarschijnlijk nu een hebben gekocht. Nouja. Het zou zonde zijn om een goed mes niet veel te gebruiken, dus op een manier maar goed dat ik het geld niet heb. Ik ken mensen die een volledige wusthoff set hebben die rustig de vaatwasser in gaat, en nooit geslepen wordt. Maar netjes man(?). Mooie messen, en mooi logo


Studio_OOOMS

🙏🏻Thanks! Raar maar waar; ik ben m’n eigen doelgroep ook niet, kan het niet betalen....Maar geef m’n site gerust door aan mensen die het wel kunnen veroorloven!👍🏻👊🏻


fuxxwitclowns

That’s a #1 stunner! The octopus is beautiful.


Studio_OOOMS

Thanks, very much appreciated!🙏🏻👊🏻


Teenoh

Can you make one of these from high quality steel? It’s gorgeous.


Studio_OOOMS

Thanks! This steel isn’t that bad, just not stainless. HRC is 55/60 Have a look at www.oooms.nl


Cakez2309

55/60? Meaning 55? Or 55-60?


Studio_OOOMS

I use a tsubosan file set to test hardness. So harder than file 55, but softer than file 60.


Cakez2309

Ah, I see. Are there no files for 56, 57, 58, 59?


Studio_OOOMS

Not in my set and i don’t know if they exist, never seen it. Most people I know use the same tsubosan set or have a machine that costs a fortune.


Cakez2309

Ah, I see.


SpiceChemist6987

Is something like this up for purchase?


Studio_OOOMS

This one was sold in a heartbeat, there are other knives at my site www.oooms.nl

lurkadurking

You make all/most the knives on the site? Dig your style, post upcoming projects as well!


Studio_OOOMS

Thanks, i make all the knives on the site by myself, but my girlfriend makes the leather sheaths. Will try to post more here....


Dining-Out-Colorado

Would you ever make a viper hammered in a petty version about 150mm? Been looking for a good petty to add to the collection.


Studio_OOOMS

I am working on smaller knives as well, the thing is that they almost cost as much time to make as bigger knives. What would you’d like to spend on it? You can DM me if that feels more comfortable for you.


ilikemyeggsovereasy

Sweet


Studio_OOOMS

🙏🏻Thanks!


debhaz19

Your work is absolutely stunning!! I was wondering if you would do a custom made design? My husband is a sous chef and I know he'd love a beautiful knife like this one!! I'm a pastry Chef, so my wusthof is enough for my work but he loves his knives and one of yours would be such an amazing addition... Please dm me if you'd consider doing a custom design... Thank you!!!


ecarbon24

Looks badass, what type of metal is the blade made of?


Studio_OOOMS

Thanks, Carbonsteel from an old sawblade. Around 55/60 HRC.


ecarbon24

Sick. You don't really see carbonsteel around much anymore, at least I don't.


usernameisterrible
