Hey knife makers! So a few of the guys at work (manufacture concrete pump trucks) went digging in the crap bin at at work and found some hardened steel and decided to make some knives. I have to say, we are hooked. We kinda formed a knife making club... I know... It's kinda gay, but we really sucked at bowling... Anyway, we are quite new to knife making and don't have a lot of knowledge, so I might come and ask some questions here and there and post some pics for you guys to rip on. (It's all good, I can take it.) This is my first. image hosting free no registration This is after I used 80, 120, 220, 320, 400, 600, 800 grits, then orange, green and white compound. image url upload I am making a full tang handle out of lacewood. I had some leftover from a guitar build. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and I look forward to learning more about this fun new hobby. Talk soon, Ben.
