Re: The WIP thread

Been a busy few weeks but managed to get a few blades ground. All stainless, working on handles at the moment with the woods that are picked out next to them.

Re: The WIP thread

Three new ones, all stainless RWL34. I really like this steel, it's pretty easy to grind even once hardened and it gets crazy sharp pretty easily. There's a 225mm gyuto, 150mm nakiri, and a 120mm petty. The nakiri is a little shorter than average but I didn't have as much of the bar left as I though...

Where?
First post. They're also on etsy but more expensive because of sellers fees.

Re: The WIP thread

Been a long time away! I've been away from knifemaking for a little bit but am now getting back to it. These aren't really WIP pics so much as fully finished beauty shots, but why not come back with a bang? Both available, I'll post up details soon with extra pics.

Re: The WIP thread

Back to work this week after some time away from anvil and forge. Been finishing this up, as well as finishing another skinning knife for someone.

Re: The WIP thread

Working on some outdoor knives today as they’re quicker than kitchen knives! First is a hunter ready for HT, second is a smallish Bowie that I’ve forged out from a bar BD286EA9-5519-452D-9065-921B950AE86C.jpeg D48000BC-CD81-4339-8F84-CAAB19135BD3.jpeg E15E90E5-2113-474F-9653-5EB0A3D81378.jpeg 950717...

Re: Leather work

Nothing beyond plain leather sheaths, but you'll have no trouble making those. Stuff like Bob Z just posted is a little more challenging!

Re: New Maker you may be interested in.

Ooh, now those are purdy. Might have to wait a while, I added one to the line up last week and hoped my wife didn't notice. She didn't until the weekend, when she said 'By the way, what is that?"

Re: Damascus gyuto, 220mm with saya

Thanks! I thought I'd add a couple more pics to help it along. These were taken before I used it so I'd be happy to restore the blade to this finish:

Measurements, 220mm on the edge, 240gm weight. 45mm tall at the heel, thickness is 2.8mm above the heel, 2.25mm ...

Re: S35VN Knife blades

Thank you very much for the information. as I mentioned I have extremely high quality laboratory oven in the lab (it can go to 2200 F with an error of 5 degrees and can go down in any gradient) so that would not be problem for me. If I decided to go this path, do I get it correctly, that you shape ...

Re: The WIP thread

Couple more of the same knife. Hamon came out pretty nicely, I'm going to leave it here. Not sure on handle, I'm thinking something fancy to go with the relatively plain blade. Thoughts?

Nice work. How hard do you recon the white 2 skinner is? I'm in the market for a gift for a friend. Also how much more for a belt sheath?
Thanks! The white 2 steel should be around 60hrc. I can add a little belt sheath for $25 for you.
