    Hey Will

    Looking good, the birdseye Totara has come up well and the kauri doesn't look too bad either!

    Cheers

    Heat treatment, Cryo...
    The cleaver was obviously not going to fit in the dewar....

    So a tray method was employed.

    All heat treated



    Thanks All

    Ok Mostly all ground. I had a problem with the Cleaver with the hollow grind, it got a bit too thin so will need to do a remake on that one.
    Some handle part pondering.......


    These two are for Matt, we had some amazing Rosewood from Mark for these, but I had not checked the width and they were a bit narrow to drill for dowels, So am using a hidden tang method, should go great with the style of knife and handle in this case.

    A little update from my custom corner. I'm sorry I have been taking so long to get custom work out recently. It is because I have been trying some new things with the utility line and some experimental pieces. I think it is time to make a list of everything currently underway so you can see exactly where we are.
    It is my 36th birthday on monday and I plan to have a short break next week. I am going to ride my motorcycle up the welsh coast and eat fish on the beach, and generally chill and see some sights.

    So before I go I am finishing of some of the stainless batch this week and over the weekend.

    Kurt -ground - handle bits prepped
    Matt x2- ground,handle bits prepped
    Alan x 2- ground, handle bits prepped.

    The rest will have to wait until my return.

    These two had to be done again because of a warping issue.

    John stainless Cleaver - Profiled.
    Alberto stainless suji - profiled.

    David x3 stainless heat treat and tapered.
    David x2 stainless dammy- carbon core- some test pieces made, yet to start on actual pieces.

    Jim Trojan - material made, wood received.
    Gary Cornell - Feather damascus x2. material under way, wood received.

    That is all the stuff that is in progress at the moment and to be completed over the next 2 months or so I would estimate. I really appreciate your patience.
