Anybody ever seen one of these Robeson Sure Edge knives. Weird texture on the upper part of the blade.

Interesting...it's like the texture on the tangs of their razors.

I just bought myself an 8" Old Hickory Chefs knife for 15 bucks, since I'm not based in the states it'll probably take over 3 weeks to get here. When it gets here I'll snap a few shots and put them on here, then start on bringing it back. Ill leave the handle on because it seems to be in great condition.

I just wanted to say that if you ever want to clean ODC I have found Break Free (used for gun cleaning) to be absolutely amazing stuff..

I've been cleaning up some old forgies and the break free stuff works magic as far as I can tell

Sounds good! But over here in Europe it's quite hard to get gun-related stuff as no-one is allowed to use them in most of the countries. Ill see if I can resource some when I start on the knife.

CLP is just a Clean, Lube and Protect agent. It isn't necessarily gun specific. WD40 has pretty much the same properties. It isn't particularly favoured in the gun world because it can affect the firing primer because of the penetrating qualities but for knives it does a fine job. I prefer a delicate metal polish like simichrome or fritz.

I lost out on an Old Forgecraft 8", bidding closed at 4 AM GMT+1, so I wasnt there to get a better bid in. They outbid me only 1 dollar ;(

Home made honesuke. Started life many moons ago as a Dexter 48910 before it got into an argument with a bench grinder.

Got a Dexter 45A12H to practice sharpening skills on for $20, and a free unmarked Sab that needs some love and tip repair.

Looks like the Dexter had the belly flattened significantly, and I kind of like the profile. Glad there's no bolster to get in the way of the stones.

Old dexters are surprisingly nice knives. That's a good find.

Looking forward to playing around with them! Though you jerks in this thread have me eying up forgecrafts in the meantime. Why do they and some Old Hickory have those parallel depressions near the spine? Are they integral to the manufacturing process?

Sorry guys. I've dropped the ball on a thread that I started (and an awesome one!). So, to re-kick things off, here's my latest refurb that I did for a customer who has become an incredible resource/sounding board for me. He does lots of butchery, loves carbon, and this one is a beauty. I started with the middle knife in the top pic and after some really enjoyable refurb work, we ended up with the last picture. Let me know what you think. I love these projects!

Nice scimitar, love the blade not only useful in the kitchen for cutting meat but nice knife in case of zombie attack, lol.

Can't quite make that out. What does it say?

Does that Say "My Cutting My Charge" ? LOL, I have one of My GGPaws that has that on it. So I was wondering if it says the same thing, and Yes ! He was a Butcher .

Picked these up today. 11" forgecraft utility. New Central American bocote wood handles. Local knife maker did the work here in Austin. Sharp as all hell.

Got my new Ontario butcher knife back from our local knife maker. Original Hickory handle was in rough shape, so in addition to refinishing he put on a set of kirinite handles. I wanted something a little different looking for the handle so I know its mine. And everyone else knows too. :)

This one just arrived from the bay. Excited to try out the shape tomorrow. It was pretty blunt, so I hit the stones for 5 mins and it came up shockingly sharp, very fast. I can see why these are coveted. There is a slight issue with the grind on one side close to the heel, but I don't see it being a big problem, and if it is I'll either fix it, or just live with it.

From the photos I would say it might be a very slight overgrind, or just a microbevel you didn't hit. Nothing to worry about.
