  2. Camp knife

  3. Makers marks

    This is my mark .....an L and a J ......and sometimes I put in a groove depending on the type of knife
  4. San Mai blade

    Cladding has to be a little thicker than the core material if it is a stainless / carbon laminate. Depending on what finish you want on the finished knife. I use 1/4 inch carbon steel and 1/4 inch stainless if I want a forge finish on the blades but go a little thicker on the stainless if I want a polished surface. ( some ekstra material to grind of spots and pits )
