Just finished this Tanto style knife. It is made for a KITH (Knife In a hat) on another forum. You make a knife to a chosen style, names all go in a " hat" and you all get someone else's knife. This one is made from a HSS Planer blade, black denim wrap Micarta and copper trims.

Nice work 👍

Just wondering have the issues on the other forum been sorted yet?

Seems all quiet at the moment personally i am happy with the forum.

Bruce has cancer and mental health issues, not to mention moving house and going through a divorce but this apparently is not a good enough excuse for a small minority of keyboard warriors who were relentlessly demanding answers. The mods finally had enough and banned them. Answers will be forthcoming all in good time.

Yh I knew what was going on as I was a subscriber, stopped my renewal until it's all been sorted.

i met Bruce at Bardsters meet seemed a nice enough guy just waiting for it to be all resolved as it is a nice friendly place to visit.

Eh up Griff. I've been a bit quite for a while. Had last CT yesterday so hoping all's good. Enjoyed you pics and just thought I'd put a little something in the mix. It's yours if you want to do a number on it.

Wow!!! How did you made the heat treatment? Clay? 

Very cool tanto!

I cold ground it out of a HSS industrial planer blade to retain the original temper. I used an oxy-propane torch to take the temper out of the spine to give flexibility. Hadn't planned to leave the temper pattern visible but kind of liked it and think it adds to the whole Japanese dagger look.

      Heard a while back mention of sharpening with MDF wheels but never really paid much attention. I recently thought i would give it a go and turned up a quick MDF wheel on the face-plate of my wood-working lathe. I clamped a makeshift guide to the back of the lathe and worked with the wheel turning away from me. I was blown away by the results! Super sharp paper slicey edge straight off the wheel.
       
      Decided a dedicated MDF wheel sharpener was high on the list of must haves so started gathering bits. I was lucky enough to pick up an old 8" Makita bench grinder on ebay for £25. Everything else is made from scrap bits so that was all the outlay for the build.
       
      I took the guards off the grinder, swapped the switch and the power cable around so the on/off switch is effectively now on the back so the grinder can be operated with the wheels running away from you.
       
      The knife clamp is made from an old door hinge welded to a bit of rod off of some other power tool, hence the nice grippy knob on the end. A 6mm hex bolt through the hinge clamps the knife in place. A cutting of hex bar slides up and down to alter the angle of grind and locks in place with another allan bolt.
       
      Once set up to the desired angle the blade can be sharpened on both sides and both wheels quickly without altering anything.
       
      The MDF wheels are loaded with grey polishing compound and jewelers rouge respectively.

      Here is the UK legal carry Opinel mod slip-joint i have been working on.

      I dropped the point on the original no8 blade and shortened it to 3"
       
      The slightly unusual shape was determined by the central pivot point and steps in the original blade. You can see this from the pre-assembly pic. Although it looks slightly unusual it has the advantage of giving a shoulder to place your thumb on which actually holds the slipjoint spring in making it even more solid and less likely to fold up on your fingers than a normal slipjoint design.
       
      Milled brass liners with soldered bolsters and stabilized stag scales, all fixed together with stainless pins with the exception of the brass rivets on the scales.
