    Bevel grinding jigs

    @Natlek Dude you started all this d..k comparing because I said - freehand grinding gives you speed. And you saw the oportunity to brag about how fast your grinder is. Freehand gives me speed because I have the ability to just grab the blade and start grinding it. No matter what shape it is...

    Bevel grinding jigs

    @Natlek - the problem is the way you say things - "Don't listen to that advice that learning to grind free hand is something special , learning free hand grinding is just a waste of time." - Instead of this you could express your opinion like a normal , reasonable person and the guy can read...

    Making a dagger neck knife from a file,Questions

    Hmm maybe I'm not using the right term. It's hardened only on the outside , but I thing the whole thing has the same carbon content, because when I cut a small piece , heated and quenched it , it fully hardened. It was not a case of carbonized surface layer . Sorry if my post was missleading :)...

    Bevel grinding jigs

    I filmed myself grinding a puukko blade. 100mm long 21mm wide 4mm thick(rhomboid cross section). 80CrV2, not hardened. It took me 6 min 35 sec to bring it to 0.8mm and to be ready for HT. My belt speed is a bit low - 12m/s (2400 fpm) and the belt is half worn 40 ceramic. A friend of mine that is...

    Yes speed. When you do something different than the absolutly same type of blade that you do every time and your jig is adjusted to you will understand.

    Making a dagger neck knife from a file,Questions

    I had a file that was case hardened. When I ground the end a bit and then etched in ferric chloride the outer part of the crossection turned black and the center was brighter. Also if you snap a piece of fully hardened file it will be very uniform and fine grained if its case hardened it will...

    Bevel grinding jigs

    Can you please recommend me a jig for this thing :) It came out a bit wavy doing it freehand :) joke aside , I don't think such statement is right. Freehand grinding gives you freedom , when you get used to it it also gives you speed and is nice skill to have . I don't say using jig is...

    Finishing wooden handles for leather sheaths

    Yes if you wait till the oil hardens everything is fine. The problem is that it hardens slow and sometimes I think it's done , but it's not and when I put it in the sheath dry spots appear :)

    Finishing wooden handles for leather sheaths

    I don't use filler on my handles. I usually make them out of material that doesn't have large pores. But I have two personal puukkos - one with elm wood and the other - oak , they both have pretty large pores and I used multiple coats with tung oil and it looks like this sealed the pores nicely.

    Finishing wooden handles for leather sheaths

    Hello, I have the same problem. When I make puukko with wood that absorbs oil (like walnut ). I use pure tung oil and during the summer it's ok because it polymerizes very fast . But during the cold months without much sunlight it takes alot. Sometimes 2 3 weeks. I don't like to put anything on...

    Looking for feedback

    Hello, my feedback is about your edge. Your bevels are really low and so the angle of the edge is very obtuse . It is not sharpened as a knife but more like metal cutter. That's why it takes the abuse without any damage. If you sharpen it as a knife dont test it by cutting metal things with it.
