      Knife class started back up.

      I got this one ground and hardened last night.

      120 is working on some cool stuff. I should have took pics of his to post too.

        Sounds like a nice one.

      I think 120 must be tied up in somebody's basement. That's why he won't talk to us no more.

        I took a picture to show the handle material and liners. Hopefully I will get it shaped this week.

        My birthday is in March, so you have about five weeks.

      For when you get caught up.

            And still gots all his fangers

          Thanks guys. I wanted the black and red to show up more distinct in the handle. To me it has the Jackarta look to it. But the copper is sweet and I am really proud of myself on the hollow grind. This is the first hollow grind I didn't that didn't require somebody else to touch it up.

ID:	67427In between the hardening and the tempering the steel is very brittle and delicate. This was suppose to be a pair of steak knives and a kitchen knife to match.

            It may get reshaped on the nose and used for lime cutting knife.

          I like the shape of the chef's knife and the middle one, too. The third one is a bold artistic statement, but not my cup of tea.

            It's a dumbass newbie mistake and I knew better. Thanks for the complement.

          I was being a smartass about the busted one, but I really do like the shapes of the knives. I really like the chef's knife, the way you've dropped the point and undercut the blade so the edge goes back under the handle. It almost looks like a stone knife or a harpoon tip. Very cool! If you decide to make them for sale, let me know.

            Oops


            at least, it can be reshaped and salvaged.

            I concur, that butcher knife is going to be super cool.
