Finished my second knife ever. 15n20, the handle is dyed karelian Birch & brass. Made with and angle grinder & file jig. Hand engraved. I just need to re clean the polished edge. I am contemplating putting a micro bevel on this but I will test it out 1st and decide.
There is lots of room for...
Full tang Santoku. Made with an angle grinder and file jig.
This isnt the first knife that I have started but the first that I have decided to finish as a gift.
I would love any feedback
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.
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.
