    Does this include people on the practice knife list? If it does and I made it to that list, I'm in.

    I have several knives in different state of completion. Still working on improving finish. You might not believe it, but it seems to be the hardest of all steps involved in knife-making.

    Here are a few knives profiled and ready to be heat treated.

    San-Mai with AEB-L core on Bubble-Wrap patern gyutos, to be precise.
    The suji is carbon Ladder damascus I forged while at Devin's.
    The the small gyuto are Spirograph stainless.

    Wowa-wee-wow! Very nice!
    I'm not sure how I managed to miss the signup for the first batch, but I really need to get on the next one.

    A bit on the thick side, but at least edge deformation should be minimal.

    hahaha nice one.



    You know, I think the finishing steps are the bulk of work in any job. I remember putting models together when I was young, and they were giving instructions on how to make a tree for a diorama from scratch. It was like "Twist wire" and showed twisted wire. "Wrap in paper and glue" and showed that. "attach leaves" and it started to look vaguely arboreal. Then it said "finishing touches" and BAM it had 10 coats of paint, artificial bark, layered leaves, grass about the roots, etc. The final step is always the most over-the-top, especially with such high-class work as this.

    Very cool and well done. I never would have thought the finish would be so difficult for a perfectionist. (sarcastic lol) Let me know when the next batch opens up, you know I am a sucker for a suji.
