First of all Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
Here is hoping 2021 makes some improvements.

I am going to start drilling, profiling and bevel grinding blade blanks in January for my first run of S35VN
I will use Bos Heat Treat for hardening of the blades. Target is 61Rc.
There are 8 fixed patterns that BigDave has offered to post pics of here for your review. I can do some other special
patterns if requested.
Blades will have a flat bevel grind.
Some patterns offer applied guard , no guard and finger notch or with neither that I will identify.
Micarta, G10 and some nice wood I have on hand will be the preferred handle scales, but ask for other interests.
You can express interest on this thread, but details will be thru another channel.
You can pm me here, call my home phone (leave message if I don't answer) or email me.
I can send text pics from a cell phone if needed.

Pics will show up sometime this evening, thanks to BigDave.

Thanks for your interest.
Tim

PS: Some have already spoken for knives from this batch. I have notes on this and will contact you, but don't hesitate to contact me either.

Thanks a bunch for the posts Dave.

1,2,3,7 and some 8 are ground to .125" (1/8").

4,5,6 and some 8 are ground to .096" (3/32")

1,2,3 you can option for applied guard, or a finger notch, or neither, or both.

1 and 2 are basically Bob Loveless patterns. Rest are mine.

I plan on mostly nickle silver hardware.

All will have flat scales except 7 which will have a round for handle.

We are looking a approximately 2-3 months or so out for first finished product.

Thanks all
Tim

Ok, I am going to have to call this enough for now.

I will do another batch next year late spring, summer or.

It will be S35VN also.
I may also slip in small batch of CPM M4 to clean up the material I have on hand sometime next year.

Thanks
Tim
