My Js test knives

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I don't get to post too much here anymore, but I am still very much a dedicated fan of this site.

 

Don is THE man that got me into clay hardening... and it was with a knife made that way that I was so honored to receive the George Peck award. Thank you for steering me down the path that was right for me Don.

 

First two shots are by Eric at Point7, last three are by our very own Jim Cooper. I cannot tell you how elated I am with Jim's photos.... absolutely top drawer work. You are a wizard with your equipment my friend.

 

The knife in the 2nd and 3rd shot was the George Peck knife.

 

Thanks for looking :)

Thanks for the kind words guys... It sure means a lot to me. These knives tried my patience more than anything I've ever known. It sure was a relief to finally get to a point and say, "Okay, they're done, stop messing with them!" :wacko:

 

I have a W2 integral that was clay-hardened... and was going to be one of the 5 but I just couldn't pull it off in time.

 

It will be done soon and off to Coop for a photo.

 

Thanks again everybody, I really appreciate it! :D

The JS seems more´n well deserved to me - even if I don´t know the regulations, I´d say they had a hard time looking for things not well done.

 

Superb fit and finish, nice flow in every single one of them - my deepest respect, outstanding work.

 

And Coop did a fine job, too.

 

Now, time to get the Mastersmith degree, huh?

Thank you guys, it sure means a lot to me. As far as a forum full of folks that are seriously dedicated to all that surrounds forging blades and sharing that info... this sure is the place to be.

 

So many people that are "sick in the head" about this stuff just like me! :P^_^
