Stanley 5.5 blade knifes
hanging out with my friend Ron

I’m in Scotland now, visiting my friend Jamie.
Also have the chance to see a few of the lads from last year, one of them is Ron, Ron has a thing with knifes, so when he saw a knife I had made he said I could drop it of at his place…
The day before Jamie showed me a old worn out Stanley 5.5 blade he had lying around.
2+2=knife… ok I’m not a mathematician, more a magician I guess.
So I said to Ron; ’ if you have a few hours we will make you a knife’, and so we did.

Here you can see it in use: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/41803


Pictures:
1. The knifes, Rons on top, mine under.
2. The blade that became blades.
3. Playing with tools.
4. Now we are getting closer.
5. Ron shaping.
6. Me sharpening.

Thank you for a wonderful time Ron.

_Hope it can be to some inspiration,

Beautiful work as usual, Mads, but I have a question. Who’s shooting you in your shop? Great step photos!

Great looking knives! I like the short stout blade and really like the handle design.
