I just spent the last 2 weeks making these knives for a knife show that was held on 7 Dec. But with 6 to 8” of snow and less then 10 deg outside I had forgo the event. Oh well at least I wont have to make any more for awhile now.

Great looking assortment of shapes—all look like they’d do a very nice job.

May I ask what you used for blades?

I’ve made many of projects, but never any carvings. Your display of knives makes me wanna give it a go.

Planeman: I use L-6 for most of the small blades. For the larger ones I use O-1.

That’s a great collection of knives that you have made their. I’ve only made a couple of knives and would love to get more into it. It’s just real hard to find the time to do all you want to do.

Way back when I was still gunsmithing, I made a set of carving tools for working on stock and inletting stocks, stuff like that. I made the handles from dowels, blades came from worn out hack saw blades, and mounted the blades using acroglass bedding compound. I still have, and use several of them in several shapes, some for grooving, some for plain carving and so forth, I used to just knock one out for a project I was working on and needed to have a blade just right to carve out a groove. Those do look great though, perhaps you can sell some on Ebay, that’s where I get stuff for my other hobby, building, and rebuilding computers, and now days working on laptops, as most folk don’t war to dig into a laptop because of the problem of getting to the motherboard, or even hard drive on a lot of models.
