    Here are some of my work in progress knives. These are the 1st knives i have ever made.

    Two are made from 15N20 and three of 01. I have been experimenting along the way.

    The only tools i have used so far really are an angle grinder, File jig and vice.

    I will be sending them off for heat treat this week i believe. Then its time to make(try) some wa handles

    I made a mock handle for this one to get an idea of what it will look like

    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.

    all really nice looking shapes. My eye gravitates to the longer nakiri blade.
    The bottom 2 have an Oatley knives essence to them.

    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.
