    really like this, I really want to try that style handle, I forget what the feature is called at the back of the handle? Sorry about the breakup, never good news.

    Knife #6 - First Nakiri

    Thanks for the comment, yes I have another Nakiri blank cut out ready to grind that does have a slight bevel. It will be interesting to see the differences in the way they handle Yeah it seems to be the theme. I was just wondering if the feature was more form over function.

    Knife #6 - First Nakiri

    Traditionally with a nakiri is the spine at the tip square? It is one aspect of the knife I am not sure on, I made sure to round the spine and choil however the the spine at the tip is near enough a 90 degree edge, from what I had researched this looked normal but I am not sure how practical it is.

    WTS Stabilized blanks in aid of another maker

    With a lack of interest I will withdraw this as I have advertised blanks for sale elsewhere. I will just have to aim to buy a hammer of John in the future 🙏

    Gluing these new plastic materials??

    One of my most recent WA's was African blackwood with a Corian spacer. Glued well, rough the surfaces and you're fine with expoxy imo. I want to try recycled plastic, I've heard that doesn't take epoxy well but it seems all the rage at the moment in the UK.

    WTS Stabilized blanks in aid of another maker

    Hi all, I would like to try and help another maker who has had some very bad luck recently. I have been told not to post in b/s/t as I have intention to sell items but seen as this is a charitable cause I hope it is not a problem. All money raised will go directly to John of @non_jic on...

    Grain of heat treated O1 Tool Steel

    Guessed as much, didn't think of it at the time. Hence it being able to take some pretty hefty blows with a hammer! Thanks!

    #1 - Triple Threat

    There's a small hint if you get up close and personal. When sanding it was very lemony/citrusy! It was lovely! Very oily though, not kind to the disc sander

    Grain of heat treated O1 Tool Steel

    Those replies are extremely helpful thank you: @milkbaby that is exactly what I was looking for. Could you explain why not to temper? Are the temperatures too cold during tempering to effect grain size? @Beau Nidle Paul that sounds like a plan! I did use a magnet, I pushed a screw through a...

    Grain of heat treated O1 Tool Steel

    Hi all, Doing some practice pieces on my forge as I need to understand temperature in the forge better. I have heat treated some O1, brought it to orange/yellow which I think is far too hot (I'll check or if someone could confirm that would be great) I tempered at 250 Celsius for 1 hour...

    #1 - Triple Threat

    One silver lining of being on lockdown in the UK and being lucky enough to have some space to work outside is that I've found the time to finish off some handles. Didn't include any of my home stabilized wood, I need to buy some as a comparison to know if it's actually correctly stabilized...

    Does Ebony Crack Easily

    I would tend to use African Blackwood, it's more forgiving, I think it has more figure and looks nicer. Not as black but it depends what you want.
