Email sent with shipping address. Thanks, Dan.
So, how about the last group of 15?
Hey Dan any word on the last 15? I think I'm #67. I'm re-deploying again soon and would like to take it. Thanks.
You're #59, I'm #67. Hope you get your knife in time.
I'm on that last shipment of 15 too. I cannot wait, and I'm sure Dan will be very happy when this project is behind him. I cannot imagine the amount of work grinding those blanks.
thanks for the reminders, guys. These are waiting for me to finish grinding the bevels (a 3 step process actually, ends up taking an hour and 3 belts per knife...! )
I will get them done this next week so they can be back from heat-treat in January.
Hi Dan- I have several of your knives. And I was wondering if you have-or will have any survivors left?
I an not fussy about grips- I would just like to have one.
The last group is being sent to Paul Bos for heat-treat tomorrow....hurray!!!
I will let you know once they get back.
Nearly done grinding...
I couldn't get them done. Had to call it a day.
I still have 7 more to go. Will do them tomorrow.
I posted a "Completion Date" in the first post - just FYI.
Check 'em out!
Since taking that pic, I have ground out 2 more Survivors.
Slowly but surely!
It was grinding the Survivors that made my grinder motor blow a fuse yesterday, by the way.
It is THAT intense!!
Let's see if I can get another done today.
Great News !!!!
Blades are back from heat-treat. !!!
These are first and foremost on my glue-up list. Progress!!!

That's interesting...is the front one a sabre grind?
nope - the grinds are just not finished yet.
It's easier to grind the flats after the handles have been glued up and roughed out. Once heat-treated, the steel is harder and takes longer to grind. So it's nice to have a meaty, comfy handle to hold on to instead of steel with hard corners. I don't let the blade get hot during grinding - so there's no worries there either.
