    Vanax kitchen knife.
    Got it worked on last night.

    Will finish up the handles today.
    8.5 inch blade
    2.2 inches tall overall.
    Toxic green G10 liners under
    BWP Green Glow liners.
    Rubberized Carbon Fiber from AJ Composites.

    So far the handle feels amazing and it's not even done yet!!! IMG_08102019_082151_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg IMG_08102019_082218_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg IMG_08102019_082229_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg IMG_08102019_082300_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg

    Last batch of knives in vanax went out yesterday.

    Last batch before I get married!
    As of this coming Tuesday the 22nd I will be on vacation.
    I will return on the 29th. And will get back to grinding the 30th or 31st. Then back to business!

    A knife for @ScooterG
    26C3 Apex at 64HRC.
    Getting black micarta handles and copper pins. IMG_02112019_115750_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg IMG_02112019_115811_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg IMG_02112019_115851_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg
    The bottom 2 knives are fighting knives from 2 different customers.
    One is a Zfinit ring knife that will be cerakoted, the other is a larger combat knife in Zfinit. That will have grey terotuf handles (on the way)

    More pics to come today!

    Here she is. Almost ready for HT. IMG_26112019_184158_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg IMG_26112019_184206_(1080_x_1080_pixel).jpg
    Grind on the left side was fighting me a bit. But other than that, each side is pretty close. Once I use the pyro glass platen I should be able to even it out. And bring it up to 120 grit. It's currently at 36.

    Took a lot of steel off!
