    Baffle Pipe Thickness

    I used pieces of 12"x 2" stainless exhaust pipe. Not very thick but works well. I got about 30 blades out of one for $14.

    Knife Dog Orange oven??

    Does anyone on here have any experience with the Knife Dogs Kiln made by Paragon for them? I Know it's not overly big or complex but for under 1k I'm strongly considering it. It will enable me to make a knife or a few and have them treated that day. Instead of waiting until I can get 20 ready to...

    Diamond Stones

    I use a TSPROF system. I like diamonds for a reprofile or damaged blades. When not using a 2x72 that is. Then go to my shapton glass.

    Comparing Grinders. the 2x72 type

    I'm not really offended because I knew it was coming. YES, some HOMEMADE grinders can be out of line in many aspects and cause a TON of aggrivation and issues. The Pheer grinder is not that example. Is it a $3500 grinder? No it's not. But it sure as hell runs smooth, tracks perfect, and is...

    Comparing Grinders. the 2x72 type

    I MADE IT EXTREMELY CLEAR the belt was just thrown on for picture. My Pheer is not an example of a shitty made grinder. PISS POOR Example of to make a point on. But truth be told..... Once I noticed it in my picture. I knew you were going to jump on it! Definitely not surprised.
