    Cheers mate. Oatley knives are definitely an insiration for me. I have tried to recreate similar looks to the knives I saw in my recent trip to japan. My next hurdle will be finishing them of. I will be happy if I have atleast 1 knife that cuts well.

    I am just sent my 1st batch of knives off for heat treat. I started this hobby in January of this year after wanting to for ages. All made so far with an angle grinder and file jig. A mix of 01, 1084 and 15n20.

    Test Kiritsuke in 15N20

    Awesome. I am currently making a load of knives out of 15N20. Did you heat treat yourself? I am going to send mine away for heat treatment so fingers crossed I do jot get warpage like yours. Good to see you made a recovery.
