Welcome!

I like what I see on your website.

Does this mean you're going to start making kitchen knives?

I couldn't help posting a photo from your website.
Very very nice knives, excellent photos by Coop and sheaths by the best maker out there (Paul L)
Looks like you take your knifemaking seriously.
We'll be waiting to see some kitchen knives from you.

Yes, I have a couple of hundred pounds of Cru Forge V sitting in the corner in addition to the Hanson W2 and Aldo 1084Fg/15N20 mix, and a now functional (finally) power hammer to take the Cru Forge down from 1/4 to 1/8 for starters (can't do that with my press), so I think I will be trying some kitchen knives.:biggrin:

I hope so, but the only knife that I have ever made 1/8 of an inch thin was a little 3 1/2 inch blade mini-bushie. This is a new experience for me and I am having nightmares about these huge micro-thin steel canoe paddles twisting up like a corkscrew in the quench. I don't make monster 1/2 inch thick blades, but that big bowie was closer to 3/8 than 5/16 at the ricasso.:lol2:
