My friend who owns Champion Tattoo in Edmonton approached me a while ago about making him and his entire crew a mini knife, all the same, and I am not sure if you all remember but I had trouble coming up with something and in the end made a prototype mini cleaver. Well they all loved it so we decided to ahead! I made a blank up exactly how I wanted it and gave it to a machinist buddy of mine to cut in a tattoo style shop name and in the end to save a bit of money and time, he cut out the basic blanks for me. I was torn on doing this but I figured as my tattoo shop buddy wanted them all identical and I hate wasting steel, it made sense to let him CNC the blanks out from my original. I know it is cheating but let's face it. With stock removal, the art is in the design and bevelling and not in the hacksaw... Please don't hate!! Haha! Anyhow, as soon as the new grinder is set up (I am soooo antsy!!!) I am going to start beveling. Anyway, here are a few shots. Let me know what you think!
