I appreciate all the work you put into your photos. The fact you have excellent taste in blades is also a good think.

What say the fire?


Not “new” but Tom Krein is the best grinder in the business, bar none. He uses Bos for HT.

Several folks have pointed to makers using O1 vs stainless or “super” steels.... If you’re good with that Burt Foster is the man!!!

Tom can grind.

I would not buy another knife from him with Bos heat-treating...

Love those scales GW.

There’s also some very weird tastes here.. my guess is they don’t kill/use much, but rather imagination/pretend. Which is ok I guess.

Tom can more than grind...he is the most precise grinder in the business, unless my Zeiss and Mitutoyo Optical Metrology Systems, and measurement of hundreds of custom knives are wrong???

Also, I recently communicated with Paul Farner re a couple of knives, including a forum maker here.

From past discussions I know you are a real knife guy, so shoot me a PM if you would, re your Bos concerns and I’ll share mine...

Thanks!

Full disclosure: Todd Theyn and I had been internet buds for prolly near a decade or more before I knew he was making knives and sheaths.

Todd posts here on 24hr. using the screen name of "justahunter"

This is the first knife that I got from Todd, Weathered L6 Steel and Spalted Pecan.

IIRC, Todd told me that he had let the bar stock from which these knives were made weather for +/- 6 years.

It works!

He has been kind enough to make a set of 4 kinves for my two boys, oldest grandson and my son in law.

[Linked Image from i38.photobucket.com]

Here are two of those. He engraved their initals and birthdate on the spine of each knife.

[Linked Image from i38.photobucket.com]

and their initials on the sheath that accompanied each knife!

[Linked Image from i38.photobucket.com]

Jacob's knife was given to him on his birthday. This deer and 5 others were skinned with his knife the day he took this buck before it had to be resharpened.


The next knife is Todds interpretation of a Nessmuk style blade. Weathered L6 Steel and Buffalo horn scales

10/4.


Here is a guy that also posts here from time to time.

His name is Lee Baumgart. I have two of his earlier knives. Both are of O1 steel.

Lee has upped his game considerably from the time I purchased the two I own.
