    Around the bench at Buttermilk Supply

    This thread will be home to any custom work and projects around the shop.

    Starting this thread with a custom leather knife that I finished today. O1 at ~63 HRC, right-handed, and wearing a new style of handle. The handle transitions from octagonal at the butt to oval towards the brass. The thought was to use an oval for comfort at the base of the palm and an octagon for control by the thumb and primary fingers. 39mm at the edge.

    Finished a prototype boning knife this week. This knife is a collaboration with R. Murphy, as I think their mostly-stiff boning knives are great. They did the rough grinds and heat treating; I finished the bevels and took it from there. Buckeye burl and brass handle. I'm quite happy with the finished piece. The aim was to make a western boning knife that is more than just functional. These might show up in the shop soon.
