    I live just outside of Charlottetown near Marshfield. Sorry the only wood I have is in boards I think an inch thick. They probably have some thicker stuff. Problem is they can't guarantee it casue it just shows up in some of the hard maple they mill.

    Some great stuff there. The birdseye is beautiful and I like the applewood on that belt knife.

    Sounds cool to me. Yes I do do my own heat treat. I use my wood stove as a forge and a convection oven to temper. Speaking of temper, hope my wife doesn't mind, the stove is new. :)

    Wood looks awesome and so do the knives.

    Its funny what they have to put up with..... to us anyway. Lol. Hats of to the wives for not kicking us out. Lol. Last night I put a blade in out good dish to soak in vinegar over night. The good dish was the best fit for the blade. Also I decided to stab an apple and leave it on the counter over night just to see what would happen. This was just the past 24 hours. She is shaking her head and/or trying to keep calm on a daily basis with me. Lol

    Ha haa so true. I hear "Yadda, yadda,yadda,.... while you're down stairs all day "playing with knives". That's ok, she has her, One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy, The Good Wife, Modern Family, The Middle, and prolly more; then there's Kindle to also keep her distracted. I prefer the meditation of designing and trying to balance a blade. :)

    With the wood stove for the heat treat, what are you using for a forced air source to allow it to hit proper temp?

    I have been able to get blades to non magnetic just by getting a good bed of hard wood coals and propping up or tenting some wood to make a little cave. I leave the flew open and the door partially opened. It draws in air on its own. I know its not the most desirable set up but it's all I have to work with. I have used a blow dryer before.
