That's quality work. Very nice. You could do just about every job with that one knife.

Nice looking blades Elchapo. 👍

The big chopper was made as a user so not a lot of extra time spent on the finish. Think it was an 80g ceramic belt on the bevel with no additional hand finishing and sharpened with a 400g Trizact belt.

Most small blades i would finish grind with a 120g belt, sometimes a final blast with 240g. After that i work up through the grits by hand using wet & dry folded around a strip of wood and lubricated with wd40. Most of the work done with 240g but working up to 800g for a satin finish or 1200g if you want to polish it.

      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.
