    new stuff today:


    This is not all my photos, but I've got a pile that are... less than pretty.

    anyway: first, here's a leuku that is going up for sale shortly, I have to let the linseed oil finish drying and then polish the edge, then it's going up-

    And this is a different knife.

    This is the one that I'm working on because of all that's not to my taste with the gerber guardian.

    This is a WIP- it's not finished. like, the handle is at 120 grit and all.











    OAL is about 7 inches, blade is 3.

    It's 1 inch broad and 1/8 thick and has a really good convex geometry, and a comfortable handle.

    grind is a partial double "almost full" convex edge. I left just enough room for a little bit of choking up with the thumb on one side. Might filework it a bit.

    The specific heat capacity of aluminum is pretty far off from that of copper, so, unless it were a really thin blade I don;t know if it would work right. I am only basing that on physics though- I obviously haven't plate treated anything.
    I intend to live forever; so far, so good.

    The main knife is the Alaskan design, scaled up for his hands and desire for a bit more grip length and blade length.

    OAL- 14 5/8 inches, with a blade at about 9 inches. Handle is very thick, pulling out 1 to 1 1/8 inches throughout. Balance is still right at the ricasso

    The companion knife is 7 3/4 inches with a blade of 4 inches.

    Handles are made of masur birch, which I haven't worked with before. I really love this wood.

    Mike man, that is a score. Flat out score.

    Christof, you need to do a leuku with that birch for a handle. I think it would look amazing. Classic, but intensified.

    a fairly plain piece of walnut, but now at 320 grit, you can see some tiger coming out. Subtle, very subtle.

    Christof, I really like the "Chute Knife" style grind on that knife.

    A leuku I'm working on:

    11 1/8 inches. Blade is 5 7/8 - 1/8 inch 1080 steel, scandivex edge and differential temper.

    Zebra wood handle with brass pins and lanyard tube. Handle has a very slight downward slant which photographs funny but feels fabulous.












    filework.

    not quite done yet, but close.

    I'm busy!

    For scale, the seax in the middle there is probably an 11ish inch blade

    Top photo shows some heat treated knives. including an integral chute knife I'm trying out




    These are all not heat treated yet.
