  1. Yeah yeah....Happy Stinkin' New Year. Now .....
  2. The hobby of mine is just that....a hobby. I feel in order to do this with any enjoyment and piece of mind I have to make (or attempt to make) something I am inspired to do. To make something with a certain shape, color etc. is work....something I retired from years ago. I have a certain look, style that I aim for in every knife. I guess I make what I want cause it's what I need to do in order to want to walk out to the shop in the morning. I'll loosely call it an art form or craft. This coming year I have certain projects I feel I need to at least make a stab at.....pardon the pun. I hope th

  4. Yeah I was reading that about the angle. I see reading further a lot of them are made from 01 steel. That is a carbon steel and requires care. They say the acids make for a nice patina but also requires it to be cleaned and dried after use to avoid rust. A lot of guys after cleaning put vegetable or olive oil on them. With 3/32" steel I'd have to have it professionally treated cause warping becomes a huge issue.
  5. Anyone have an idea how thick the steel is on one of these knives? I've seem them made from hand saw blades but never held in my hand an actual quality brisket slicer. There are plenty on the interwebz but I've yet to find a listed thickness.
  6. Nope.....I have a project I want to start and that blade alone will take several weeks I believe.
  7. SOLD!!! Made from 3/8" thick....that's right...3/8" thick 52100 ball bearing steel. Blade length is 8 1/2" and OAL is 13 3/4". Handle is made from hard rock maple with Padauk and G10 accents. The finger guard is 52100 as well. It's $170 shipped and includes the combo leather/kydex sheath shown. Thanks for lookin'.
