    Made some progress today...


    Drilled the holes in these 1/16" AEB-L knives.

    Cut, drilled, surfaced ground these in 3/32" Nitro-V.

    Yes, I know the holes in the first one are different...I went too far with my step bit...

    Cut, drilled, surfaced ground this one in 1/8" Nitro-V. Modified kitchen utility model. My 1/8" steel allowed for a taller design. I think it looks promising...

    Really sweet wood scales for kitchen knives...

    Which would you chose?

    Good stuff. Pair on the right has a nice bright kitchen vibe to them.

    Finally got a batch ready to send out for heat treating.

    This should give me a few extras to screw up...

    Well I got hidden tang fever...

    I am motivated by what MP Knives has been making and thought I'd give it a go.

    This one is going to have a 1/4" nickel silver guard/spacer, about 1" bog oak, thin white g10 spacer and dyed curly maple for the handle.
