Beautiful knives, beautiful spot.
Awesome. What is your finishing routine on the blades? How much have you sanded?
I hand sand all my blades to 600gr . I'll go up to 800gr straight pulls then back down to 600gr.I find I get a better finish that way. This one just went to 600gr because it's mine and it will life a ruff life.
Well I was hoping for an answer that didn't include hand sanding They look amazing.
Lol will I wish I had a different way to but hand sanding it is . I kinda enjoy doing the handsanding it when you can see your blade come to life .
I saw a home made affair that was a piece of sandpaper mounted on a block and a saws-all or something providing the back and forth motion. Wishing I kept the book mark now because it was a simple solution to the hand sanding yet accomplished the same thing mechanically.
Check this out John. I had gone searching for something similar a while back and found this:
These aren't specifically for sanding but still pretty cool:
The brown handled one in the middle is my favourite. THey're all amazing but that one seems to pop for me. Awesome knives. As usual...
I might have to make a trip into town and get one of those gadgets
