    Funny you should say that, Nivia hand cream wanted a blacksmith for an advert recently, I missed the application though
    Stuff is going on, finishing some grinds and starting to clean up some handle bits. Should get a couple of the simpler ones done by the weekend.
    Next week I have a work experience chap, he is going to help me get some blacksmithing work finished. I might have time to fiddle with handles a bit but will be back on it the week after.

    My trusty fork lift has died To be fair it was expected, I payed much less than scrap value for it 5 years ago. Alas I let the batteries drain and can't get it going. Its now 3 tons of "in the way" in the corner of my workshop. I'm hoping I can tow it a few hundred yards to the scrap yard down the road to pass go and collect £500.
    I will have to do a photo montage on its funeral day.

    Aphex and Michael's Gyuto's will be done by next week. Here is some progress.
    Quick etch before finishing the blades.
    Michael Gyuto 250mm profile 1


    Aphex 250mm


    Together

    After hand finishing, some testing.


    The 3mm, 2mm, less than 1mm behind the tip grind works very well. Giving great parting and stability whilst very laser like to the tip.
    I gave them a couple of grind tweaks though after testing and started on the handles today. Pics to follow.
    Have a great weekend everyone
