Thank you!

It's just a prototype, so it might take a while to work out a process for integral bolster knives, but I am very excited.

The reason I shelved peened bolster integrals project is that I don't like plunge-line grinds, and short of tig-weld bolsters (and ground out radius thereafter), there seems to be no way around it. Tig welding is something I will explore down the road, as I would like to extend integral bolster option to other steels not available in round bar.

Looks very nice, but isn't there something wrong with the handle? It looks all bumpy and stuff? :biggrin:

What's the blade length on that bad boy?

245 mm on the edge, I think.

One step at a time. I will look much different when it is done. :)

I will be making a couple of experimental knives. These will be based on some common requests I have had (but haven't fulfilled). Depending on feedback, I might include them among the type of knives I offer. That is all I will say for now.

Stay tuned.

PS: The integral in the picture will be made into 250mm (on the edge) suji.

That looks amazing! I'm very excited to see the finished product.
