Post your finished knives

I figured we're getting close to the deadline, may as well start posting our knives.


Here's my finished knife. It's a 6" petty knife forged out of 1084 with a mango handle.

Two very different takes on a large chef knife. One is MagnaCut with a resin handle filled with dried herbs, the other is hearth steel and old chain with curly birch. I wanted to make both of these knives, so I figured I would leave the choice to whoever draws my number.

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Looking great guys!

Nice entries this year.

The drawing will be tomorrow, Wednesday October 4, at 5:15PM Eastern Time.  Since there have been no updates I am working under the assumption that it's just the five of us: 

1. Bob Ouelette

2. Aiden CC

3. Geoff Keyes

4. Alan Longmire

5. Jaron Martindale


If I'm wrong, let me know ASAP!
