My Sunday Photo for this week is titled Knife Details
This series of photos is actually a set that I rejected from my recent post – You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know. I was thinking about using them to illustrate the difference between different types of knives (the post is about the brilliant WÜSTHOF 4680/16 cleaver). Ultimately, I ended up not using any detailed shots in that post, because I liked how clean it looked with just the title photo. I felt that the extra pictures got in the way of telling a good story.
I do. however, find these pictures interesting. They really show two things – the huge differences between different types of knives, and the beautiful details that exist on the edge of finely crafted knives, when seen through a macro lens.
I shot these photos with a very narrow depth of field as I was attempting to really zone in on particular points along the knife edge.

Head on over to Blog of Dad on Instagram to find more of my photography. It’s not all about knife details, I promise! Also, check out my post – You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know, to find out more about my initial thoughts one the WÜSTHOF 4680/16 cleaver (spoiler alert – I like it… a lot!).
Disclosure – WÜSTHOF provided me with the 4680/16 cleaver, free of charge. It features on my Christmas Gift guide for dads and in the mentioned post. Stay tuned for a full review, coming soon!
