Gifts could help clearing customs in some countries...

Instead of using an electric carving knife with cheap stainless blades, would it be possible to attach some nice Dalman steel to a shakeweight? Or better yet, incorporate the motor into that polished custom wood?

Thank you Robin, that was really informative and fun to watch. I’ve been using 30 minute slow set epoxy resin. I use the same procedure, without the torch of course😅. I’m going to give the hot glue a try. You don’t have to hold onto the knife for as long to wait for it to set and you can remove the handle if you ever need to. I enjoy watching a veteran like you doing your craft.

And if you get this from burnfitting, like some tar residue from smoke, that wipes off easy with alcohol. Sooner easier than later. I see some jknives sometimes with this left on the blades.
That's a hot tang! I've always been afraid to make it that hot when installing. But I've never done a real burn in, just an install where I get the handle hot enough to melt the wax or glue... Inspiring.

Hey I made my first knife about six years ago 🤗 but thanks, good to hear it might help.

Please tell me you were a corporate executive before that, or a copy editor for an advertising company. Btw, I heard someone call you the grandfather of Swedish knifemakers recently. It must be a young field! :)

Well, you’re a veteran to me and your knives are beautiful. I’ve only made maybe 10 or so knives in a little over a year. And I don’t sell any of them, just give them away. The videos are really enjoyable so thank you for that.

I worked in a industry with quality control, checking practical function and tolerances to standards, for parts we built battery cabinets with.
