    Its weird for me too. I'm wearing shorts and a light sweatshirt today. Probably in the 60s here. But everyone here is bundled up like it 30 degrees. Amateurs.

    Merry Cristmas! We’re had a cold xmas day here in Australia. Very unusual, normally it’s stinking hot.

    Used the apex edc to cut up the roast chicken :thumbsup:

    Looking good Colin!

    If you are going to order any this coming year hit me up maybe we can go in on a sheet together and have it sent directly to my waterjet guy for cutting (esp the vanax) - I'll do the same if I am doing a batch

    Finally figured out the electrical problem.

    Which created another one. Lol.
    I need a dedicated 120 circut for the shop.
    But I managed to get the grinder fired up to full power.

    Cranked out 3 blades in Vanax this afternoon. Shop still leaks unfortunately. But less than it did before. Need to buy a shop vac.

    Definitely need a small shop woodstove. It was rainy and very cold today. Got really cold by the time I finished the 3rd knife.
    All 3 are ground to 120 grit.
    Next weekend I'll finish grind them and get handles glued.

    Vanax blades are finish ground.
    Handles are almost done being shaped. Has a rookie move when gluing up the RCF. But thats an easy fix.

    Zwear blade has some gorgeous GL hansen Gcarta.

    Blue Razzle G-Carta. This is going to be stunning when finished.

    An absolute rookie mistake. Can't believe I didn't push the pins all the way in before the epoxy set.
    An easy fix but seriously kicking myself. This is a "brand new knifemaker mistake"
    DERP!
    I'll drill it out and add new ones this weekend.

    Gcarta is micarta from G.L. Hansen micarta. They had the term G carta trademarked. Which is easy to say!
