  1. I for one would like to know your sharpening technique Joel.
  2. I think you did a great job. I like the choice of wood with the remaining forge marks, nice color balance.
  3. 1. Jaron Martindale 2. Bob Ouellette 3. Aiden Carley-Clopton 4. Alan Longmire 5. Geoff Keyes 6. Conan Dunlap 7. Jeremy Blohm 8. Ron Horton
  4. Very nice in every way. Is that a shadow, or have you contoured the bolster back into the handle a bit?
  5. Very nice! I like everything about them.
  6. Thanks Gents! It's been a long road figuring out all the steps, but I'm getting there. Special thanks to Gerald Boggs and his excellent tutorial pdf.
  7. In this particular batch, I had 4 blades side by side, edge down, tang up, separated and held in place with ceramic dowels.
  8. Interesting! So maybe not a time issue at temp, but the quench oil being too hot?
  9. Hello - got around to etching the blade pieces yesterday. I'm not sure what this may reveal, but perhaps someone with more knowledge can make a diagnosis? Thanks.
  10. Snapped a blade and the grain is quite large. I'll reduce the hold time and see what I end up with. Thanks.
  11. I just happen to have a pint on the shelf I bought based on one of your previous posts. Need to put to use.
  12. I'll break a blade and see what the grain looks like. Joel - I did not use any type of anti-scale. I'll try some next time. Thank you all for your help and suggestions.
