Cool idea! How far into the dough-stuff did you stick 'em? Maybe a ruler would be nice to get some perspective.

25lb block of clay.

I sunk them 2 inches from the handle.

Nice, Salty!

Is it me, or does the last Carter seem concave on the right side about starting about 2/3 down the blade?

Definitely the best way to photograph a blade's geometry.

Yes. That's a large bevel ground into the blade. Hammer finished above that.

You throw pots now as well as cook in them? :D

Used to. I had 50lbs on hand before the wheel broke.

What kind of wheel and what broke? Oh yeah, cool profiling too.

Inexpensive Clay Boss. Motor went. I took it apart then I moved and lost some pieces. Now I don't have a space to use it so it just sits half apart.

Way cool Salty! Thanks for taking the time to share.

Is it me or does that KS look just super-sexy?

it's super sexy.

Those are very cool. Just wondering what the inspiration was though. Was it just to show geometry, artistic, really mad at clay....

Yep. Looks like a hollow ground razor. Nice symmetry too.

Scott, I bought one of those used from a friend about a year ago -- bumped up the pulley over the wheel to increase rpm's, bought a coupla birch bats to stick psa 12" diam abrasive discs to, and now use it for a flat grinder.

OK now this is interesting. Congrats on coming up with something new for us to go crazy over. :D

This is great! I'd love to see some shots of profile cross-sections like this at different points on the blade.

To the Hobby Store!

Got the idea from a Dave Martell implanted video. The first few seconds show a guy grinding an edge -- I figured it would make a good flat grinder too. Plus, the tool is much more familiar to me than a belt grinder.

Okay. I can't take it anymore. I must post... How could you not include the Masamoto honyaki in there?

Salty dog
10-22-2011, 05:16 PM
It was up the stairs. And the KS is almost a replica.

I'm going to do it over with a ruler and I'm going to cut the block into thirds. I don't need to push the knife through the entire block, just the first third. I'll get a truer picture that way.

Salty dog

I could also push the knife down from the top of the slab of clay.

Notice which spine isn't rounded.

^^^ Yikes.

You could cut with that thing when the edge dulls.

1st place in the "so simple, it's brilliant!" catagory, Scott! :idea2:
How was the stiction when pulling them out? Did you have to do any wiggling to get them to release?

Salty dog
10-22-2011, 09:46 PM
Not bad at all. There's always a learning curve. I learnt to pull gently when retreaving. Alos the third of the block thing. It was hard burying those knives that deep. The thin flexible ones bent too much which is why I didn't include them. The next will be more acurate and comprehensive.

Would oiling or heating the blades help?

The tip area looks crazy thin! Did you thin that down or did it come that way?

Salty dog
10-24-2011, 10:19 AM
came that way.
