    That is awesome dude. I love your stuff and this sort of thing gets even cooler. Have you ever messed around with 203e? I have seen some etched and it almost looked a bit like wrought iron and it has the nickle content. That said not many things are cooler the wrought iron. Can't wait to see more of it. Please do more:)

    I haven’t tried 203e... I don’t have any experience with it but my belief is that the closer I get to pure iron the more success I will have. I don’t think I am going to steels like to stick to anything except maybe Pure iron

    DP in A2 with burlatex and black micarta. Made this one for myself but got an offer I couldn’t refuse. Hate it when that happens!

    Funny story about this little paring knife...
    upload_2020-6-19_12-18-36.png

    When I made it I took the TBE down to something like 0.006" or 0.007". I took the above photo, posted it to this thread, and put the thing into the kitchen knife block. Anyway - things have been kind of busy, so it just stayed there. So..... I was kind of surprised when a couple days ago my wife said she had been using it a lot, and really, really liked it.

    Ummmmmm ...... I have not even sharpened it yet!!!!!

    I’m almost done with this one. I’m not sure whether the scales are buckeye burl or box elder burl. It has an 8670 carbon steel blade with brass pins.

    A kitchen Filet Knife - birthday present for my sister (turns out her favorite color is blue). I did cheat a little bit (due to limited time) - started with a pre-made/ground/hardened blank (9Cr18MoV - chinese version of 440C - no idea of the hardness :-( ) .... but I did take it to the grinder to clean up the plunge lines, reduce the tbe (was not so good as bought), added the sharpening choil, and put a satin finish on it. Handle is WEO's spalted maple, dyed and stabilized (Thank you William!):

    Here’s one I started earlier this week and finally finished up this evening.
    It has stabilized premium maple scales, black G10 pins, and an 80crv2 blade.

    Here's another upswept bird and trout in 80CRV2, Wenge and Padauk with yellow and white liners. Still needs finish sanding on the handle to 1200 grit or so and sharpening, it's near sharp already and cuts paper. wip 1.jpg wip2.jpg
