^^^ dendritic cobalt?
I had a d.c. bladed Terra 365 on the pocket today. I need to figure out how to sharpen it - they recommend you don't raise a burr to sharpen this. Who ever heard of that?!
I actually have one of those on the way, should be here in a few days My Boye cobalt stuff I just touch up on crock sticks, works great. The not raising a burr thing is because it's relatively soft and the burr is hard to get rid of...just use light pressure and it touches up super quick
Today's folder is a bit of modern and a bit of traditional.
He makes folders? I've got one of his utility knives in the kitchen that I enjoy very much.
He does! Very nice ones at that, I just finished engraving two others that are on the way back to him and available I think
I can see that's a load bearing wall in the pic.
You can definitely tell he's a kitchen knife maker, this thing slices fruit like nobody's business
hi, thanks for being an early customer
my work has certainly improved since your knife, feel free to send back your knife anytime for a cleanup at no charge,
I've made folders for a couple of years, starting with friction folders and then modern traditional slipjoints,
I made about 6 this time a year ago including this one,
They are alot of work and difficult to do at a high level.
Despite the fact that I had a unique pattern, a one of a kind forged blade, and one piece milled bolster/liner, I couldn't gain the sales interest and momentum I needed (at the price I wanted) to be able to afford to continue doing them, so I took a break, It's been a year since I made a folder.
I even made a couple in Damasteel and with pull dots.
They were a good effort and could use some refinement and improved flow.
if you get back at it, and think you could use some design assistance, get at me
No problem at all, it's my go-to in the kitchen. Despite seeing daily use it still looks great, even better with a little patina on it.
Any slipjoint fans hanging around?
@Josh K That is slick man! who is the maker? Is that a sheepsfoot, any more pics?
gimme gimme gimme
This is a "mini Native" from Jared Oeser (https://www.instagram.com/j.oeser_knives/) and one of his first original designs. It's a bit like a sheepsfoot blade. He makes this in two sizes, the mini is about 13% smaller and 3 3/16" closed.
Few other pictures I had handy, enjoy!
I dabble... and keep it classy
@Josh K Wow, thanks man. That thing is Gorgeous!
