Yes Paulus, please do - better chance of winning then ;) in all seriousness the photo probably makes it look better than it is. Its strange also that you can start working on it and then all of a sudden it looks crap, 5 minutes more work and it looks good. it kind of wavers between the two. I guess the trick is to stop when it looks good.

 

this is it exactly , they go through stages of oh no what have i dont this will never look right time passes you do alittle more and then its i cant beleave it looks so good . wait till you on polishing and micro scratch removal , it will transform it !!

im well impressed so far guys . i like all of them !

just some small die pins mate , they get really hot if you using a grinder and ruined apoxi adhesion , hard to polish to .

i thought about it and could not soo the benifit to them , brass and ally both dont rust , they peen over when you hammer them , the same price etc .

i had to say there is no benifit at all by using them i could see , and the work load is higher !

just my thoughts on it .

 

 

ally miriors very well is easy to shape and afordable , brass is the same just has a classic look to it i think ?

all the best , matt

scratch wise take it to 400 grit , then drop back to 120 , then work up to 400 again .

you have got to be dead strict with the directions you move the paper .

i dont think they look to bad for the time in them !

there is one or two emergency blanks if needed !!

£300 back hander will get a full ground blank ;) ha ha

you could allways establish a uniform scratch pattern , same as beofe just use 120 grit paper .

just do perfect straight lines from reccaso to blade point .

its a dshame you got bored of it , you might wish you had got them out when its all done !

      Been busy with other things so not made a knife for a while. There is a KITH over on EM and the challenge was to make a Puukko form recycled materials....right up my street.
      Blade ground form a HSS industrial planer blade. Handle is stacked from recycled brass, copper, stainless and filled in with denim Micarta. All cast onto the handle in a oner then ground to shape.
