I worked a ton in the shop putting together some knives in December. I thought I would share a few of the pieces that came out of my shop. Thanks for looking.



8" OAL from 3/16" 1095. Black Micarta and Orange Liner



7.5" EDC model from 3/16" 1095 bar stock and made in house Fire Hose Micarta

8" Cleaver/Kitchen Chopper from antique Sawmill blade. The angular scores on the steel are from its use generations ago as a circular saw blade.

Using up the last bits of scrap from the Antique sawmill blade. A small necker and razor. The center of the saw blade is still visible on the bottom of the necker.

Green liner on the EDC from 5/32"" 1095 bar stock

Almost forgot the ULU's. The one on top still carries some of the original markings from the Curtis Saw Co. St. Luis Mo. I did not see them on the metal until after I had finished and buffed off years of rust and my heat treat. The one on the bottom cracked during heat treat. I could not bring myself to throw it out after the steel had served for so many decades. I think I'll let the crippled blade hang out in the shop with me as a reminder of how much we learn by our mistakes. Lesson learned.

Yes sir, if you hear a "ping" when quenching that blade is toast. Been there up
