Very nice Daniel!
This week I finished this hunter, engraved by a local artisan: Luis Sigaudo.
Beautiful piece as always PEU! Stainless steel bolsters?
First knife ever. Nicholson bastard. Hope to have it done next week.
Working on Belt grinder cooling ;P

Managed to scratch out my first stainless blade today out of .130 aeb-l. Finally feel like I'm getting somewhere with my freehand grinding.

Making tools today. Needed an axe drift for a project I'm working on, so I went out today and forged one out of some 1.5" 5150. Used the press for some (very) rough tapering, but it was mostly hand work...Here it is sitting next to a billet of wrought iron and nickel that will form the body of the axe head. Bonus picture showing a window of the billet. There are two different wrought sources in here though which makes for some great color. This pic only shows one...
Nice looking knife and some fantastic engraving.
nice pouch Rick!
First liner lock, AEB-L blade. I took some pics fresh off the grinder (750 grit belt finish) and then threw the blade in the tumbler. The knife is far from perfect, but not too bad for a first.
Love that liner lock design Lo/Rez. Is it ground on both sides?
Working on grinder design
Thanks. Yes it is. I'll post some more pics when it's done.
I think your grind is very nice. It will be a great folder. It's your first? Looks like you've been doing it for a while! Good for you. Larry
Thanks Larry. It's my first liner lock. I completed one slip joint prior to this and have been making knives for 17 months now. I made some mistakes on this one that I hope to not repeat on the next. Here's some stonewashed pics.
I don't think it'll work like that... you might need some more parts!
