I have often post what I am doing in the shop but today I was prepping the knives and thought that even this aspect may be of interest to some of you. So to start I though I would just put out the basic tools I use for getting the scales off and in pinning the pins and peining the center pins. The very most important tool I use is my folding knifemaker's anvil (stiddy). I could not do what I do with this incredible stiddy. It is heavy for its size as it is solid D2 steel. It has a great ring to it when hit with a hammer which I do at times just to hear the ring in the shop. It was custom built with extra long front extensions to accomodate deep welled knives like the Buck 110.
