    Man, I keep checking back and look at this picture.
    I love the profile, stabby and choppy!

    couple chunks of linen micarta bolted on now. Drilling and reaming went better than expected. I'll be busy tomorrow with this

    but I'm hoping to at least get the scales ground to profile, and maybe the ends profiled as well. Then comes the fun part

    I'm hoping that this thing doesn't expand too much after heat treatment that the holes don't line up properly, but just in case I'm going to step away from the handle and tend to a few little touches while the steel is soft. Foil is on the way and when it arrives, I suppose I will be heat treating a knife for the first time. It's pretty exciting and I've been reading up on it quite a bit, so I'm really looking forward to it

    @Lorien I dont think you are buying liquid nitrogen for this one kukri-shaped-knife, right?

    all the money is spent! The ole freezer is going to have to do the job for now. I'll nestle it in with the frozen peas
    I'd like a dewar at some point, but for now I'll have to do without. I'm starting to feel like heat treating will be something I'll be getting into more deeply- it's fascinating, and I'm just scratching the surface

    The dewar is the expensive part. Sometimes you can find cheaper ones used. I found one a while back but the seller didn't want to ship it. I just wanted to play with some liquid nitrogen for food stuff.

    the story is contained in its entirety in this thread. Nope and nope- not yet anyway.

    Actually the story has spread and attached itself to my own personal wants and dreams...

    What stone/system are you planning to use to sharpen that recurve section. Delta 3V is no joke.
    This is what kept me from recurves (apart that they look like garbage) is how do you sharpen properly. Something like Spyderco Sharpmaker rod can do a job of sharpening, but reprofiling an edge, even with diamond stone will take a lot of time.

    3V is easy to sharpen, imo. A ceramic rod should be enough to maintain that inward curve area, given the type of use it might see

    Dexter Russell makes an oval shaped diamond steel. You would have to be gentle with it but it would fit in the recurve. Also DMT makes tapered diamond files in coarse and other grits. Also the DMT wave.

    This is ridiculous. Take my money, and give me something I'll never really need.

    just fired up the oven- my goal today is to avoid lighting myself on fire. So far, so good
