    Annealed 3.
    Today
    Ground the bevels on seven, heat treated four.

    Yeah, Skab's right. It's just a one shot deal. It's a special pattern that I probably won't make any more of...unless it turns out like the Mississippi and lots of people want it.
    Later, poetater.

    In that case we need a better shot of it! looks a little like a Green River, without the pommel and the foward angle.

    Remain calm.:D
    Sorry, brutha. Couldn't resist that one.

    Yeah, it's kind of a boone's branch and green river inspired sort of thing.
    I'll get some pics in a couple days.

    I started off this morning insulating the shop attic.:( Not fun, but I was cold so it was a have to sort of thing.
    Anyway after that I got some scales laminated and prepped all the handles (that I could) for glue up tomorrow. I also annealed the new z-sere.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Handle prep takes forever.

    Then I put in a little over time and profiled the Missouri and the new z-sere.

    The Golok comes later. I gotta get some steel in before I get to it. Maybe the next batch or the batch after that.

    One wcc is getting red linen with thin black spacers and the other is getting brown canvas micarta. :dblthumb:


    Thanks, everybody.

    Thanks, brutha Mac!


    Today I glued up five of 'em, flatted the scales for two others and rough ground the old z-sere the rest of the way. Also rough ground the Missouri and the new z-sere.

    Not sure by the username. If you ordered a wilson's creek to match it then yes it's yours.
    If not, then no.:D

    Lots of grinding today. Finishing up the big knives took forever. Took a crazy number of belts, too.
    Heat treated the three big ones. Rough contoured (mostly) handles on the five glued up knives. Glued up the two that had spacers.

    Thanks, brutha.
    The big knives won't be a regular thing, I'm not gonna even offer them for order.
    But.....keep an eye on the site if you're really wanting one. One of the z-seres might be there in the near future. This is the last of that style.
