Sam, I like both of your designs. They should work well in your kitchen.
How did you manage to drill holes in 15n20?

That is the third time I've been asked that today

Believe it or not, it isn't recycled.
Virgin steel from Aldo Bruno and is delivered fully annealed.

No secret though, just a good sharp bit and a high feed rate.

Scales are heavily tapered and the tang is skeletonized.

POB is just behind the north end pin.

I finally got enough experience to level up my Knifemaker* skills.

Since the end of February I've made maybe thirty knives. Considerably less than my goals, but enough for me to start getting the basics down.

I cut my steak with this tonight.




This is the third edge that this knife has had on it today. I grind these fairly thin usually, and I decided to push how far I could go with it before it got too fragile to survive worst case scenario EDC duties like light chopping and limited prying. When all was said and done I ground it back to zero and put a more reasonable edge on it.

In the future, knife of this general footprint are going to be a bit narrower behind the guard, by maybe 1/8".
The knife in post #823 is pretty close to the final perfected profile.

I see you're experimenting with the handle shape.

That little pommel hook? It is a take it or leave it sort of thing.

A slightly narrower "neck" on the grip is definitely better.

Here is one I finished up last year. It is a reproduction of the so called colonial penny knife. Supposedly these were imported in large quantities to the American colonies and cost about a penny in England at the time. When they made it across the pond they ended up costing 2 pennies.





This is one I finished just yesterday. It is a large scale throwing knife that I heat treated with color case hardening and wears curly maple handles, though it will have leather handles when it is being thrown. The knife measures about 14 inches long and 3/8" thick and tips the scales at near two pounds. Definitely a big knife that will give you a good upper body workout during a typical throwing session.







This is the first throwing knife that I made, it is a bit smaller than the other one and measures about one foot and 3/16 inches thick. It has the leather handles on and makes a good thrower, but I wanted something heavier.





Here are a couple that I am currently working on. I teach a workshop class at UND where students can make small (university legal) hunting knives. This is the basic pattern that we have been using for the semester, it is a small bushcraft style knife with 4.25 inch blades.

"You met the other Sam.

Sam "Sam1911" Owens."

It's easy to make that mistake.
You are both functionally identical; Replicants designed by a mad health & safety inspector to handle a role that a normal human is unfit for.
Among the attributes of a Replicant Mod 1. are thicker skin, rational thinking, super human politeness, faster typing skills & the ability to wield the Ban Hammer with speed and precision.

I wonder if HSO is proud of or dismayed by his moderators development of independence and re-purposing of the Ban Hammer to make sharp pointy things?

On a more serious note, is there a benefit to a completely straight edge such as Sam C's latest, or is it more a matter of aesthetics?

Liontribe, that is a wonderful design. Art in action.

A perfectly straight edge is easier for most folks to sharpen. It also drops the point to the lowest possible position, optimizing control.

I love old style European friction folders. The Sardinian resplza top, a Turkish number from a small shop in Istanbul, and the well known Opinel that didn't get the locking ring until 1955. Was a strait friction folder from 1890 till then.
