    Thanks for posting Ken, the video works fine for me.

    The knives look great, I hope I can make it to Blade this year.

    Video works fine, but a little dark. I can see the knives fine, but not the colors in the handles.
    Nice start of a knife lineup!! I suspect a small mob will form in front of your table!!
    Shall we have a 2014 Bladeforums knife?

    Perchance in Stag??

    Video is coming thru just fine Ken Thanks for taking the time & expense to share your work with us. It seems like you are getting a little more comfortable with the camera on.
    One comment I would make is when you are doing a WIP tape explain everything you are comfortable talking about. The every day, obvious steps or tool that you use and are second nature to you are over our head to some degree or another. For example when you were grinding the blade on the Norfolk what was the tool you were using in your left hand. I assume it was for applying even pressure to the blade as you grind. Was there a nail head or something to hold the blade from slipping off.
    Thanks, Dave

    Dave, had to go find the video to see what you meant. Typically, that tool is a brass or bronze rod with a shallow step cut in the end and mounted in a handle. The step holds the blade up in place against the belt (belt is moving downwards) and allows precise pressure to be applied without hotfingers and without sanding bits of yourself off on a regular basis -- being brass or bronze prevents marring.

    The video cam is brand new to me and I hope to be able to work out lighting etc.

    Dave,
    Thank for the suggestion. I should make a few notes before I start the cam

    Dwight is spot on other than mine is steel. I am not worried about marring as the last few swipes I switch to using both hands to hold the blade.

    Those are three nice looking knives and I bet they will likely be sold as soon as they land on the Blade Shwo floor.

    Elliott ---You are so right - i dont hardly deserve to have such a nice pocket knife as this but i sure am one happy fellow.

    Beautiful work Ken. This came out even better than i had envisioned. Yet another fine fine example of your craftsmanship. Thanks again.

    What a great thread. The long wharnie,the ivory, the shield on the Norfolk is a real package and a half.
