I decided to do a WIP on a petty, i will be working on it in between other projects. This blade has been profiled for a while, and i wanted to share the process.


This is the blade with potential handle materials. I will get all the materials i am considering and do a poll.

Thanks for looking, all comments are welcome

Ok blade is heat treated and tempering. I have it tempering at 375 and hopefully that will net me around 61-62. Handle selections will happen later tonight after i get home from work. Hoping to get it all ground out tonight and maybe get the handle fitted. We will see...Oh...keep an eye out, after this one is finished, it will be a giveaway :D

The choices for the handles is looking good. I can wait to see what the bottom one looks like under that star pattern.

Got the rough grinding done(50 grit) need to finish up to 800 grit belts after dinner, then a few minutes of hand sanding. Next up is the handle...Hopefully you guys don't laugh at how i do them:scared4::bat:




Figure i will get a little more distal taper in it as i am progressing through the belts. Also need to get the choil and spine rounded a little better.
Back with more later :)
