    Just curious. I found it at my old man's place and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. Quality etc. Since I posted it I have been googling it and found some interesting info. I am thinking about cleaning it up, it been in the family for years.

    Madrone wood

    I have these two hunks of madrone aka arbutus wood. I think I can make some nice handle material out of them. Anyone have any experience with madrone?

    Filework

    Just jump into it. I started a few month ago and it is a simple way to make your knife stand out.

    What's on the bench these days?

    I have just added more to the list of stuff that needs heat treatment. 2 chef's knives, a straight razor like object and a friction folder.

    Discovery Channel show needs knife collector

    Is anyone still under the impression that reality TV is real? This is most likely standard practice.

    Problem with longer knives

    I have started 2, 12 inch kitchen knives and I am having the same problem with both. I seem to be bending them some how. Is this common? Is there something I might be doing that is causing it? So far it is like 1/16 out of true but it bugs me and you will never get it back completely straight...

    Thoughts on AEB-L for kitchen knives

    I got two kitchen knives with AEB-L in the process of being made right now. The best part is that it is actually cheaper than 440C despite being a "premium" stainless.
