Videos of you in knife forging action, pics of your shop and a current WIP.

Short write up of your biggest obstacle, and your personal favorite knife. For starters of course. :biggrin:

I'm selfish and want to see how you do stainless over carbon forging. Of course I'll settle just for finished knife pictures too. :)

actually it's very similar to doing the wrought iron san-mai different heat ranges and more particular thermal cycling required though.

I wish I could have Bill Burke on call to do odd jobs for me.

Niloc, I might have that under control. going to do some stainless damascus and then maybee the kitchen shears WIP.

Stephan I use less heat for the stainless than for wrought.

Bill -

I'm curious. I saw that many of the knives that you make are cladded.

Do you make un-cladded carbon steel kitchen knives? What steels do you use? And, MOST importantly, do you have any pictures of any un-cladded carbon steel kitchen knives that you've made before?
