Re: Island of Misfit Knives: Goko Western

these knives lend themselves well to being adjusted. Relatively easy to thin them, easy to convert to Wa shape or reduce handle weight, easy to relieve the back belly for a pointier shape too...the bolsters are pretty much solid and easy to square up to accept the new handle. I think I did around 15...

Re: 2018 Customs and WIP stuff

thanks guys...that last batch is on its way to peters heat treat so this weekend I had some time to tackle a couple more orders. Turning a well thought design into an actual knife shaped piece of steel is an exciting part of the craft. Here is a few pictures of how i get things done and some new cus...

Re: Sick of choils...how do you measure a grind?

Hey Joe, Sorry I missed your last question. All of the things you mentioned are critical to the finishing process. Rough grinding the bevels starts with the secondary bevels properly marked as a visual reference. As the blade nears its final state before heat treat, measurements are taken to determi...

Re: Sick of choils...how do you measure a grind?

I think beanbags post about a flat edge up against the blade is an excellent way to get an idea of whats going on with the geometry. The straight edge will tell you alot. But if its data you want then calipers are the next best thing.

Re: Sick of choils...how do you measure a grind?

I measure the thickness right where the secondary/sharpening bevel is. That would also be the thickness at the edge before the knife is sharpened. This is something knifemakers always do and is often a dimension described in sales posts on custom knife forums. I would take additional measurements at...

Re: Sick of choils...how do you measure a grind?

Here is how I do it: Grab your verniers/calipers and measure the thickness of the blade in multiple spots i.e. where the asterisks are https://i.imgur.com/oilhw4s.png Use those points to create cross sectional views. You can very accurately measure for symmetry, grind profile, inconsistencies, etc. ...
