  1. Congratulations Josh. That is a very nice set and the photo shows them up nicely.
  2. Simply outstanding. A myriad of supleratives discuised as a knife.
  3. Big afternoon with all the handles on and in the clamps under the lights for the night. There is from the left canvas micarta, giraffe bone, rosewood, spalted maple burl, desert ironwood hickory burl, amboyna, koa, double dyed box elder, and two of hickory burl
  4. That is a pretty little knife and a usefull size for EDC. Have you got spacers either side of the sheep horn? I love the amboyna burl and have one on the bench to get amboyna scales tomorrow.
  5. If we make everything we can there is more funds for the things we cant make and in reality the grinder is a simple make that most anyone can do.
  6. Something I had seen on a few videos so certainly not an original idea on my part.
  7. Took some time out this morning to play with something I had wanted to try for a while now but first I had to make a hot cut which is essentially just a blade on a stake to fit in the hardy hole on the anvil so the easiest way to get one was to convert a cheap hatchet so that was the first step. With that done I cut a strip off a plate of 5/8 thick steel and split it to over center from the top and the bottom but on opposite faces. Into the forge and started the splitting process It took a couple of heats to get it formed and flattened.
  8. Things turn out best when you make the best of the way things turn out.
  9. Have a couple ready for heat treat when I get some more LN.
  10. A few blades ready to heat treat and a couple of handles sorted so happy with the last few days efforts. The HunterSkinner on the left is waiting for the customer who wants to see the grinding and heat treating so will get that ine done when he arrives. The 5 stainless police rescue blades are foil wrapped and ready for when I get more LN next time in the city.
  11. That is a might fine loking knife
  12. Have got the first one ready to foil wrap and heat treat but will wait till I get more liquid nitrogen before I go ahead with that.
  13. I get everything I need from various sources sent to my agent and he packages it all in the one box to send over so shipping is reduced. I will have a good look through what they have
