Thought I'd post some pics of the different steps taken in making a knife.

First a nice piece of Damascus billet and my pattern for the knife that I'm going to make out of it.



Here the pattern has been traced on the billet.



Rough cut on the band saw and it's time to go to the grinder.



Profiled out.



Center punched where I want the Mosaic pins and lanyard tube to go.



Holes drilled and countersunk.



Grind lines laid out. I'll start grinding tomorrow or Saturday.



Stay tuned!

How do you center the "grind lines" and what are all the additional holes in the handle for? confused2

The extra holes are to reduce weight.
