    You don't forge your own? Lightweight. Brad is a good guy and stands by his steel. I tell people that Alabama Damascus is the lowest priced stuff that I would generally buy. Would I use it? No, but that is because I am not a wimpy Canuck and I make my own. :D

    My life keeps getting in the way of my press. Each week I keep saying, “this week, I’m getting it done!” Then my wife totals the truck, or the reapite kid falls apart. No different than anyone else I guess.

    Harbeer that is a winner for sure!
    Warren I have a little kitchen prep in Alabama I made probably 2 years ago for our kitchen and it's a nice little slicer. Doesn't hold and edge forever but easily resharpens. I still keep it as an option for customers who want Damascus but can't afford the higher cost of other makers Damascus.

    well, not finished stuff but i am pretty proud of the way these are looking already...this is my next batch of stainless customs headed to Peters. There is one vtoku2 blade in there too.
    I feel like I really have the profiles dialed in at this point and am excited to finish these:)

    Nice set there Tim, what hardness are you going for? I've used Nitro V and XHP at 62 and have been happy.

    Hello again, all. I guess a good thing about being unemployed is it allows me to spend a bit more time in the shop, and here's the most recent finished (well, except for the final edge).

    Both 1095/15N20 with ~7 1/2" blade lengths. The top one is 1 7/8" at the heel.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hi guys,
    Here are two recently almost finished integrals, they need sharpening and the small one need makers mark.
    Fun feature on the first one is that makers mark are integrated in the pattern, it was an experiment almost successful, have to work a bit more on that on the next blade :rolleyes:
    Hope you like it :)

    This was a vintage 10” sabatier knife. I worked on this last year to learn kitchen knives and made a sculpted handle for it. I reprofiled the blade again down to 8.5” and made the tip thin. I radiused the heavy choil which allows a close up pinch grip.

    It's been a while since I have posted, but looking forward to contributing on a more regular basis. This is a 155mm tall petty made of 52100, hardened to 62HRc. The handle is bias cut royal palm with buffalo horn and nickel-silver spacers. The saya is also royal palm with a hand turned nickel-silver pin.

    This is a 180mm funayuki made and designed for one of our BF members. The steel is 52100 hardened to 62HRC. The blade has a nice distal taper and is quite thin behind the edge. The handle is Oregon black oak burl with accents of 3,400 yr old bog oak, mastodon ivory,honey buffalo horn, and nickel-silver.
