  1. That looks really nice. How thick did it start out, and how thick did it end up?
  2. A decent set of dial calipers aren't that expensive. You don't have to spend $100 for Starrett and they're super handy.
  3. Very clean and well done. What sizes did you start out with for your mark? Does it read backwards on the other side?
  4. Almost! I'm a machinist professionally, so there are a bunch of little things, along with maturing and being patient and not trying to take a shortcut have really improved my knives.
  5. That is a very interesting video, thanks for sharing!
  6. Thanks @Joël Mercier. I have to go to work today to pick up some paperwork, so I'm going to use our 20" disk sander to add that slight hollow.
  7. Hi all, I forged my first chisel ground blade, a chef's knife, is there any noticable difference in the heat treatment? I'm wondering about the possibility of warping in one direction or another due to the asymmetrical geometry. The knife in question, in case anyone wants a peak.
  8. I took the day off work to forge and file a couple of blades. There's the chef's knife I posted a WIP for and left handed chef's knife for myself.
  9. I like the look of the folder, personally. I think the elk would look good on it.
  10. I'm super jealous of that double horn anvil!
  11. Are you planning on doing any work on them before heat treatment? Also, do you have any specific designs, sizes, or styles you're looking for?
  12. You can see my most recent piece here. What level of grinding are you looking for? I typically forge the bevels into my blades, but I could do a simple clean up or complete the rough grinding. Here is a post with a rough forging (no grinding yet).
  13. If you're looking for HC forged blanks, roughed out, or heat treated, that's something I'm able and willing to do.
