HEAP of JEEP Posted August 29, 2016 Share Posted August 29, 2016 After selling out of my knives at a recent show, I just wanted to get something done this past week to put on the table for this past weekend. Its not big, the pattern is rather plain, and the finishing work is sketchy, at best, but I did get it done in time to put on the table. It did its job of drawing people in to the tent. 80 layers of 1080 and 15n20, san mai style with a 1080 cutting edge. Handle was from some scrap maple burl I had lying around. Edge quenched in oil, which did give me a very distinct quench line. I've gotten them before on 1080, but this one is a little more bold than I normally get. Haven't figured out what I might have done different in the HT, but with more knives, comes more experience, and I'll figure it out eventually. Normally, after taking it to 800 on the belt sander, I'd do several hours of hand sanding to get it squeaky clean, but I just didn't have the time on this one. I used the same belt sanding technique I use for my cable knives (Just quick and dirty... get them as clean as I can, but they're a gimmicky knife, so I don't put a whole lot of time in to them and sell them pretty cheap) Not real happy with some of the sanding marks that remained, but figured I'd throw some picture up since I haven't posted a knife in quite a while.
