  1. To those of y’all that might not have seen, John passed away from cancer the other day. He had a unique style that I fell in love with the first time I saw his work.
  2. Hey Gary, thanks! I did a few dips in ferric diluted at 1 part ferric to 4 parts distilled water for a few minutes at a time, scrubbed lightly with 0000 steel wool between each dip. Then a 24-hr soak in instant coffee followed by a light sanding with 2000-grit sandpaper.
  3. Finished this guy finally… it’s been sitting on my bench for about a year waiting on me to have time to finish it, so this is long overdue lol Blade is 1084 and 15N20 with desert ironwood scales and micarta pins
  4. I really need to make one of these
  5. Forged this guy from 5160. Scotchbrite finish on the bevels, 320-grit on the flats and false edges. 316 stainless steel guard with black fiber spacer. Black micarta pin and European red stag handle. The blade is .220” at the guard, with a very slight distal taper.
  6. Also in the dishwashing section in big box stores. Lemi-shine is one brand I’ve seen before
  7. I’m looking forward to seeing this finished!
  8. Thanks Alan! That was one of the things I had to change from my initial forging was to reprofile the handle to not interfere with the cutting board. It’s pretty comfortable to use and doesn’t get in the way thankfully
  9. Finished this guy up today… Still not perfect, but I feel like I’m making solid progress. Forged from 80CRV2, it has an 8” blade, is ~2-3/8” tall at the heel, a continuous distal taper, and an edge thickness of .001” and I finished the blade to 400 grit and then with a red scotchbrite pad. Black walnut scales with black fiber spacers and 316 stainless pins make up the handle construction.
