    WOW!!
  2. Thank you gentlemen!!
  3. Here’s the second pattern welded blade from the same billet as the last knife I showed just a different pattern. Handle is stabilized spalted maple. I had some advice on the last to move my grind up higher but this was already ground and polished and I didn’t want to redo it all so I’ll try that some other time. There’s still a lot of room for improvement but I like it.

    Yeah I carefully read the directions (this time) before I used it and tried to be careful.

    That’s the problem! It appears to be more of a helping you in group!

    I need to remember that. You happen to know a gentleman by the name of Bruce Teegarden?

    I’ll have to remember that. I’m about 15 miles or so from Michigan in roughly the center of the state.

    Yeah I used Aqua Fortis for the first time it’s amazing stuff. I’ll keep that in mind about grinding the bevels higher. I wasn’t sure how high to go. Thanks

    Thanks guys. Some of my grind lines and fitting could use a lot of improvement.

    Actually this only probably my third or fourth knife shaped object to date. I don’t consider myself a knife maker at all I just decided to give it a try. It’s 136 layers of 15n20 and 1084 with a brass pins and a curly maple handle. The guard is a different pattern from a scrap piece left over from another project. There’re a lot of things that could be better but I’m happy with it at this point.
