And a little time on my hands (see previous post).
This is my first attempt at knife making and my hat is off to those of you who do this on a regular basis. Shaping and heat treating the steel is a real… well you know.
I used a trick I saw on the Wood Whisperer and stained then sanded the maple to make it (in his words) “Pop”. I like the way it turned out. It fits my hand well and I think I got the tempering just right. The blade “sings” when you drag your thumb across it but still has a little flex.
Carving knife – check. One more tool that I don’t have to buy.
I really appreciate any comments or critiques that you may have for me.
