Recommended Posts

This is the latest knife made by my son. Custom made hunter 220mm overall.

Blade: 105 mm long x 30mm wide x 4mm thick. Series 2 land-rover leaf spring with pitted finish on the flats and satin on the bevels. Shaving sharp with excellent edge retention.

Handle: 105 mm long Scottish red stag antler. Polished brass pommel capped in stainless steel drilled through with a 2.5mm hole.

Guard: 10mm polished brass with the front hammer finished to match the flats of the blade

      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.

      N0 8 Opinel hardware and fitted to red stag antler with stabilized core.
