    What's going on in your shop?

    Failure is a great learning tool in how to be successful. Figure out what went wrong and make corrections. Try again. I don't have a scrap bin I have a scrap drum. Don't let it bother you. Hang in there and you'll see your products and skills improve. If you're not failing you're not trying.

    Got the scales roughed out and the blade heat treated and tempered. Here’s a few pics before heat treating. Hopefully I’ll start the hand sanding tomorrow or Monday.

    Hello from aiken south carolina

    Hi Aikenn. Welcome to Knife Dogs. I’m trying to learn slip joints too. Just completed my first very basic folder. Not much of a knife but it’s a start.

    Very well made. Fit and finish is exceptionally clean. Man, what’s not to like! Heading over to Instagram now to give you a follow. It will be kudzu_kutters.

    A few thoughts on filework

    Good points. I’ve seen very nice knives ruined by poor file work and some nice file work done on poorly made knives. I haven’t attempted it yet. I’m still trying to make a knife that I can’t point out ten things that I could have done better. It would be really helpful if someone made a tutorial...

    Regrind looks great! That made a world of difference. I'd leave it just like that and take my chances on the tip. :) File work is looking good too.

    Thanks for taking the time to share how you do a hamon. I'm planing one in the next couple of weeks and this will be very helpful.

    Contact wheel set up

    I don’t have a sleeve on mine. Just bolts, washers and nuts. Works fine.

    I think they will be fine. If I’m not happy when I get it together I’ll burn’em off and start again. Done that before. :)
