Another awesome day in the shop. Nothing like vacation from work and spending most of my day in the knife shop.

How much time start to finish? You have a good eye for detail.

Yeah. Find some one who builds and check out the shop they use. Also start cheep don't go spend a ton of cash till u make sure it's something u want to do. Kyle Royer has some great videos on YouTube. He's a great blade smith. I can answer any questions you have. If you want look me up on facebook David griffin in heber springs, Arkansas. I post a bunch of photos in my album.

Lots of practice and I test all my knives to make sure they will slice paper into thin strips if one will do this then it is good also when u do this you will feel any dull spots or chips in the blade

Well I had to finish another blade. I was so in the mood to keep working I did another one tonight. I did the heat treat the same but I did the finish work different and boy it shows. I like them both but the next two I'm gonna polish out more. And see what that does to the heat treat line.

You do some great work man. That is really cool. I wish I had the skills/patience to do stuff like that.
