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. smile

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.

Here's a spatula I made for my wife. Hammered out of a farrier's rasp. Kinda heavy but it works. smile. Thinking about sharpening one of the long edges.

Nice, but don’t count on the revenue.

Here's a couple chef's knives I just finished that I'm putting up for sale. I forged both from a leaf spring. Both handles were treated with boiled linseed oil, and paste wax.

Mesquite scales, brass pins, blade length 8.25", handle length 5.5", blade is about 1/8" at the spine and 2" across at the belly

Here's a couple just sent out in the mail. One on the left was a HS graduation present for my nephew. Natural canvas micartra scales, red liners. One on the right was a gift for a buddy that just retired. Mesquite scales. Both forged out of a leaf spring.

Yup, they're sharp lol. Got distracted putting final edge on and I missed the ceramic rod. Wife had bought a stapler to use after last time my dumbàss had to drive in for stitches. Worked great!

Gruff.........for arguments sake, let's say a guy found some old files, etc in his grandfather 's shop and wanted to make a blade for the next generation.
something you'd do?

My first successful canister Damascus. You can see the chainsaw chain in the blade. Scales are mesquite.

This was my first attempt, salvaged enough for a bottle opener. smile
