Are you only going to do one thickness Tim?

I usually do knives with a guard at .125" thick.
Without guard, depends on style, might be thicker or thinner.

What exactly are you looking for Hank?????

The 5" skinners will be something a little less than .125" but not less than .100".
The Loveless DP will be .125".

I have you down for a 5" skinner. Correct??

Hello Tim,

Like your knives! Would be possible a Loveless DP with a 4" blade? And, another question: What kind of grind have your blades? Do you do convex grinds?

Thank you!

The Loveless D.P. pattern I follow has 4" from the front of the guard to the tip of the blade.
ie: 3 3/4' t0 3 7/8" sharpened.

You can send me your pattern for specific wishes other than regular patterns.and we can go from there.

I do a flat bevel grind. No convex.

Thanks
Tim

I received a sheet of CPM M4 steel today.

I hope to have a batch of blades ready for heat treat by early Oct.
Thanks
Tim
