I will be grinding the blades for heat #2 of the S35VN steel this next week
and get them off to heat treat at Bos H.T.
Got a couple interesting requested customs in this batch.

Gonna work up batch #3 in S35VN.

Be a winter project with finished knives sometime in the spring of 2022.

Got some left over blade blanks to work up and some custom orders to work on.

See the pic on page #1 of this thread for the regular patterns.

PM me if any interest.

Thanks
Tim

Tim,
Is the #5 at .096" the same pattern as my M4 knife?

No, the S35 blade is about 1" longer than your M4 knife with a little more gentle lines.

Another great general purpose pattern, at least in my opinion.

I do have one of those small M4 blades left over and not handled yet if interested.

Enough spoken for to make a nice batch for this winter/spring.

Having trouble getting thru to my steel guy. Should not be a problem.

Tim,

Still loving the #6 in M4. Would be the knife that would take care of every buck that I’d shoot for the rest of my life.

S35V may be a better steel, but I’m a simple man, so don’t know how that would be possible.

Thanks for making it for me.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays.

Frank

Good report.
Keep stuff that works and use the heck out of it.

S35VN steel is in transit.

Starting to cut out blade blanks in prep for flat grinding to thickness and to
remove mill finish.
That S35VN seems to be hard on band saw blades as compared to other steels I have used.

Sweet Geebus, that's beautiful.

Used my new Skinner on 4 deer this year. A touch of the steel and it will shave hair. If you decide to make a boning knife please post the particulars.
Happy camper

I've got a piece of mammoth ivory that i'd like to use for scales on a custom. You ever do anything with ivory?

Yes, I have done a few with ivory, both ancient and fresh.

The rule for ivory is not if it will crack, but when will it crack. A lot of the ancient stuff already has
cracks and layer separations and outcome can be questionable.

What you got and what you looking for????
Thanks
Tim
