    What's going on in your shop?

    Spent a couple of hours getting the bottom die done for the forks from a length of 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 mid steel, so just have to make the top die now and I can see if they will be a success or whether I have spent time to no effect.

    Todays grind

    Have the handles on 6 knives and the buff horn bolsters on another 2. The copper and brass bolsters allow for immediate fitting of the handles seeing as they are held by peened pins rather than epoxied pins. I was able to do something with the first attempt of the sgian dubh and turned it into a...

    Critique Please

    With just a little more length to the handle that is a knife I would use on the hill if there was just a fraction more nose to it. Just a 1/16 to 3/32 but otherwise that is a very good design and wouldn't look out of place among my patterns
