What I’ve been up to. Keeping busy in quarantine!

Hi, somehow I think another year has gone by since my last post. Knife making kind of comes in waves for me, so I’m just gonna enjoy it while I can. Here a couple of recent ones.

a brute de forge/ bushcraft. First forge finish I’ve done..

a high layer w’s tanto. Not getting a great reception so far.. probably gonna lose or change the wrap. I like it but I seem to be the only one who does...

and a w2 wa-gyuto. Pretty standard gyuto. First time I’ve done a three wood handle though.. Really liking the deeper heel on it. Was very tempted to keep this one for myself.


might do this in a couple posts...

Welcome back Justin. I was just wondering the other day where you had gotten to. Looks like you've been motoring along.

I really like that little tanto. That's a really tight pattern.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Beautiful work Justin! Your hamons are very nice and i really like the lines on all of them.  I am with the “loose the blue wrap” crowd though!  Excellent stuff.  Clint

Justin, I was really struck by the hamon on the first one. I liked that one the most, though they are all very nice. I just dig the contrast between hamon and polish with the forged spine.
