These started as flat stock.
They look good. Are the cutting edges tempered?
Looks good. What type of steel did you use?
ATS 34. Top one sent to Paul Bos for heat treat, he does Bucks heat treatment, bottom two done by a local knifemaker. Heat treating stainless takes more equipment than I have.
Nice work. I especially like the top drop point. What type of bone is that and how did you seal it?
I am digging the top one. If you decide to part with it, lemme know.
Did you take it down with a file or with a grinder/sander?
Cool beans, FF.
Belt sander. Sears 2"x48". They don't seem to be selling them anymore. And a Delta 1x30.
Free, those are great looking knives. Nothing beats hand made steel.
Sorry CA, missed your question. Guy that sold me the bone told me it's Stellar Sea Cow, been extinct for a couple thousand years so white folks can use it. It's sort of fossilized so it's really dense, didn't really seal it with anything. The buffing compound is wax based and the act of running it on the buffing wheel sort of melts it into any porosity in the surface of your material. Sorry for my inattentiveness.
