    Working on grinding out this set of fillet knives today. AEBL at 63 Rockwell by Peters. One of these is an order, one will be mine. :)
    Sheaths planned for all similar to the photo below.

    Seeing as how we've got the worst air quality in the world these days thanks to the fires, and it's probably a good idea to wear a respirator, I thought I'd spend the weekend doing something that requires my respirator. Cutting up 40+ feet of 10" bandsaw blade.

    Looks like I've got 46 billets worth of 15N20 here. :)

    If the bandsaw blade was hardened, how did you cut it up? Cutoff wheel? Or did you somehow anneal it before cutting with a bandsaw?

    Work in progress on these fillet knives. Rough grinding done and just started to refine them at 80 grit. They have decent tip flex at this point. 120 then 220 grit to finish refining the geometry and final flex. Then polish with 340.

    I really like the style here. Roach belly kind of looking, with more elegance. Great job on the profile.

    After taking off...oh...6 years or so I hopped back in the shop and made this little slipjoint in 154CM, Mammoth Ivory with Integral liner/bolsters. Probably doing a Lanny's Clip next. I'm making so few these days they are all for myself, my enjoyment or my family for the most part. Next slipjoint will have same integral liners, better relieved insides on the liners, use a bushing to better let me peen and hide pins and I'm working on nail nicks with a flycutter.

    That looks like the classic shop belt sander progression pattern:
    1. I'll do it all with files
    2. I will use this old bench grinder
    3. I'll buy that little 1X30 I saw
    4. Maybe I'll try that 2X42 everyone talks about
    5. Maybe I'll buy something inbetween the 2X42 but not quite a full cost/build 2X72 (optional step)
    6. Suck it up and buy the 2X72

    Just the opposite, I evolved from a 1x30 to the 2x42 to a 2x72 kmg. I never had a problem out of the kmg, used it three years and realized I really didn’t need it, and devolved to the current setup and couldn’t be happier.

    I have a little work left to do on this one and it’ll be ready to go to its new owner. The blade is 15n20 and the scales are black walnut with brass pins.

    I like it, a lot of people underestimate how well thin 15n20 preforms.

    It’s one of my favorite steels.
