A few knives on the go so far. I'm gonna be busy getting these done AND the KITH...lol!!!
Wow, and I thought I had lots on the go with 5 knives. 2 for the KITH (one's a back up) and 3 others, but this is ambitious! Good luck, it looks like lots of fun.
Thanks...they are coming along nicely and should have a least 3 completely finished by the weekend
Looks like some nice steel there.
Lookin good. I have the same thing going on there Steve. I have 8 heat treated. 3 of them are 90% done with handles. Just some final finishing. My kith is ready for heat treat but I want to get at least a few more blanks ready before I send it out. The worst thing about it all is that I'm moving next friday. :juggle:
That's Awesome Icho 'tis the season I guess...good luck with the move and I can't wait to see pics of your blades
Thanks Steve. I will be posting pics when the knives are done but I don't know if I will get to work on them any time soon. I may even have to bail on the gun show.
Looking goo Icho. Make sure your new place has a good shop
Same size garage but I will actually organize it lol. And it pas a decent size laundry room that my wife might share with me so that I can also have a couple work benches in it so that I can have a leather area and finishing area. I have to be nice to her.
Happy wife is a happy life. You don't mean to say that an organized shop is achievable?
Vrey true. Lol. I don't know how achievable it is for me yet. Lol. Looking at some of ther shop pics here makes me jealous.
A little bit of an assembly line going on...lol!!! Gotta get these 10 blades done and get back to finishing the KITH!
2 blue burl and 1 pink burl skinners all 154cm with a total 9" length.
Wow! Nice stuff Steve. Maybe you should consider changing your username to "the machine" with all this productivity.
Lol Myth, I can't because then I'd be out $30 for a whole new set of stencils...lol! Gotta get a few more blades done so I can return to the viking KITH, but it is getting chilly in the shop
Nice! I really like the forth one in from the right, will the 4 small holes in the square pattern show in front of the handle? I like that.
No they won't Mark although looking at it, may be n interesting idea. Two of the holes are for pinning the bolsters and the other two were intended to help seal the bond between the bolsters and the blade.
wow youve been a busy maker !! Looks good buddy !!!
Fillet knives 154CM, 11 3/4" total with blue and grey acrylics and yellow liners.
All are looking great but I think these two may be my faves so far.
