I like this idea. Send me blades.
I've got 3 that agree with me Iz, . Sounds to me like you got your test group :thumbup:.
You're all worse than the dutchies.
I might do a invite only pass around one day, if I do you'll be on the list.:thumbup:
Here's your dadgum pics, Terry.
Cut out, profiled, drilled, marked the edges and ground the 45's on seven knives.
Ground the bevels on seven, heat treated four.
Two wilson's creek combats, A missouri and a one shot
Two salt creek kitchen knives, a soldier river and a dogwood
Also there's possibly gonna be a boone's branch in here if I can fit it in.
Lookin good Iz! Now get off the computer and get back to work!
Man I need to get my lil lady one of them salt creeks! Yea thats it it will be for her yea. I think I can pass that one off. Looks like it would process some deer really good.
All heat treated today, all shined up. Most ready for glue up.
Except the Missouri. They always lag behind because I have to anneal them.
Pics or it didn't happen!
No pics for you!
Heh. I didn't get pics today. Maybe tomorrow.
Then it didn't happen!
Heat treated three, cut out flatted handles for four, rough finish ground four.
rough finish ground three, finish ground up to 400 grit all seven, polished all seven, marked four
Put up a dadgum ceiling fan.
I'm almost as bad at carpentry as I am at cooking....almost.
Plus I hate it worse than cooking.
Thanks for looking, guys.
Hmmm... carpentry = ceiling fan ? I think you should stick to making knives hillbilly. No really, get back to making knives..!
You mean to tell me you have electricity??? Wow a high tech hill billy! Or do you just run a generator all the time??
It's pig powered.
All right you jokers, more knifemaking today and......more carpentry.:grumpy:
Not really carpentry, I don't know what you call it but it sucked.
I insulated the shop attic this morning.:barf:
But as everybody knows, I'm skinny so heat is a good thing.
Anyway after that I got some scales laminated and prepped all the handles (that I could) for glue up tomorrow. I also annealed the new z-sere.
Handle prep takes forever.
Then I put in a little over time and profiled the Missouri and the new z-sere.
That is a big chopper my friend.
that Missouri sure is gonna be pretty when it's done!
Yep... that kind of insulation is carpenter work :barf:
knives are looking good man.
Heh. No "carpentry" today.
Glued up five, flatted two, drilled the missouri, and the new z-sere.
Rough ground the new z and the mo. Finished rough grinding the old z-sere.
These big knives take a mucho long time to grind.
Lots of grinding today. Finishing up the big knives took forever. Took a crazy number of belts, too.
Heat treated the three big ones. Rough contoured (mostly) handles on the five glued up knives. Glued up the two that had spacers.
Hey Iz, how much longer til the first ordered Green River gets started, a while I am guessing and who is the lucky dog, if you can say? I just want to see another one made up, man they are pretty. They started testing yours today, let me tell you I am a fan of you and Andy, I think that there is going to be a showdown from the get go right there.
