    Knife #2 has Angelique handles with blue liners, made out of 01
    Knife #3 has green canvas micarta scales in 01 , both have a 1/2 brass pin and 1/4 ss tubes
    I'm not even close to the level I've been seeing on here but at least others just starting out will this mine and not feel so bad about their own. Ah Ha
    Thanks for looking gents!!

    not bad for the first few and if you spent some time with 800-1500 grit sandpaper the blade can be mirror like. That 1/2" pin is an interesting idea that lends itself to a nice sized surface for etching a logo

    Thanks John, that's a good idea about etching the pin. I don't have much of the 1/2 left. It's an old valve stem back when they were made in Canada and most of the internals were brass.
    I like belt finishes myself, just not the one my grinder leaves. The higher grit I went the more lines it left. Not sure whats going on there. I'm going to clean it up and do some adjusting, maybe build a new flat platen for it. It seemed like I could feel the seam in the belt as she went around.
    I'm going to build a 2x72, I have the motor, 1-1\2 3 phase out of a school heating system, I'm piperfitter and was upgrading their system, they were just going to throw it out. So now it's sitting on my bench, waiting. Just need time, some cash for the VFD and for material. Hopefully this summer I'll be buzzing with a new tune.

    Those turned out pretty good. Use and abuse them so that you can see how it feels during longer periods of use. This way you can make adjustments to your designs if necessary.

    I found weird stuff happening with the grinds when a couple of belts seemed tight but had to be tighter, it messed up the grind.

    Another thing is the belt flat across the whole width or possible has junk stuck in it.

    Those look nice. I really like the top one on the left, it's an interesting shape. I really dig the inside curve on the edge. That must have been a PITA to get done right. Your grinds look good, on both sides from what I can see and the handles look comfortable. I'm with John on the 1/2" pins, there's a whole lot of things that could be done on those. Good job!

    Thank you, yes that was tricky grind, not completely satisfied with it but it is what it is. There's a few things I would of done differently. That's have the fun , the learning curve. Cheers
