Thanks guys, took me almost 40 years but can say I found something I truly love doing. Now if I can make it into a post retirement revenue generator, or just keep it as a self funding hobby I have 7 years and counting to find out.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas.
Here is a breadknife I made for the wife. Rougher than a cob finish-wise, but that's how she likes em. It's not pretty but it'll slice the hell out of loaf, roll, bagel, whatever. I bet it'd take the head off a mohammedan if push came to shove.
This was a blade I had rattling around in the drawer, had taken a bad warp and so I shucked it for later use. Pulled it out and decided to see what I could do with it, as a lot of guys don't like guards on their fixed blades. Turned out pretty neat, have one on order actually after showing it around for opinions with some buddies.
