Two questions: what's with the two pre-made ones in the corner and what knife is that?

06-05-2011, 11:45 PM
In the first two pictures? Left from the first batch that you see in the oven in the 4th picture. The knife is my D2 suji.

That's a big breakfast! Is your countertop real-tree camo?

06-05-2011, 11:50 PM
Nice. How do you like D2?

06-05-2011, 11:55 PM
Real-tree? naw! Funny though :D

The D2 is interesting. This one is CPM D2, I have sharpened in once since I made it 8 months ago, its a semi stainless, no rust or patina at all. Over all, I'm very pleased with it.

Is that a dog streaming by in the one picture? I thought I heard barking!
My dog would have his nose in the dough, so you're doing pretty well judging by that pic.
By the way...I'm hungry!

Lefty, yes, that was Jazz, a Beagle, Grey Hound cross. Faster than all get out! Turned my back for two seconds a whine ago, and she enhaled two full hamburgers.

06-06-2011, 08:22 PM
Sight and scent hound in one? I thought I was in trouble with a pure beagle! Haha

06-06-2011, 08:58 PM
She is still young, funney as hell, if she catches any movement BAM! Shes gone! If you throw any thing she has its number. If she looses sight of it, she runs around like a fool looking for movement, then stops, looks at me, and puts her nose to the ground, and starts "sweeping" till she finds it. Fun dog to try to fool!

Gotta love the pups! Our Dottiemae is being picked up from the boy dog's house right now. There are puppies in the future!

Dogs in general are one of VERY few things out there that are better than fancy handmade knives.
Sorry, but I think it's true...well, as long as I can keep 2 knives of my choice. :)

06-07-2011, 12:13 PM

Unreal. They look much better than the barely-marginal-five-bucks-a-pop mall version.

06-07-2011, 02:27 PM

Did anybody try these? Was wondering if or what I can do to improve them?

10-28-2011, 09:38 AM
Sure did! Super simple to put together. As for improvement, I'd need to think for a bit... Also remember as this was a while ago!
