I am glad you want to test your stuff but you got knives to make I am on the waiting list man, send it to IA or me or moose or skab or jwill for the testing we will let you know how it does. :D.. Man this forum has got to pick up some business. I posted before I left for work yesterday evening and I am the first to post today. Get some knives out there, I know that they have to been good. I will find out soon, Good luck on the contest, I believe you will end up in the top 3 at least if not come away with the win. I know your packageing is gonna give you at least one extra point.

I like this idea. Send me blades. :cool:

All heat treated today, all shined up. Most ready for glue up.
Except the Missouri. They always lag behind because I have to anneal them.

Plus I hate it worse than cooking.

Thanks for looking, guys.

All right you jokers, more knifemaking today and......more carpentry.:grumpy:
Not really carpentry, I don't know what you call it but it sucked.
I insulated the shop attic this morning.:barf:
But as everybody knows, I'm skinny so heat is a good thing.

Anyway after that I got some scales laminated and prepped all the handles (that I could) for glue up tomorrow. I also annealed the new z-sere.

Handle prep takes forever.

Then I put in a little over time and profiled the Missouri and the new z-sere.

Heh. No "carpentry" today.:D

Glued up five, flatted two, drilled the missouri, and the new z-sere.
Rough ground the new z and the mo. Finished rough grinding the old z-sere.

These big knives take a mucho long time to grind.

Lots of grinding today. Finishing up the big knives took forever. Took a crazy number of belts, too.
Heat treated the three big ones. Rough contoured (mostly) handles on the five glued up knives. Glued up the two that had spacers.

Hey Iz, how much longer til the first ordered Green River gets started, a while I am guessing and who is the lucky dog, if you can say? I just want to see another one made up, man they are pretty. They started testing yours today, let me tell you I am a fan of you and Andy, I think that there is going to be a showdown from the get go right there.
