Hi Dennis remember how I asked you how you peened your pins in that cleaver? Well I finally finished the project I asked that for. This is my spotted ducky kiradashi. Thank you!15862003023537173006216765482436.jpg

That is a cool little cutter. Looks like they all piened fairly well. I see one of the rear pins has a broken piece in the handle. Second from top. Otherwise, all the others look good.

Might I ask, what is the intended task for the knife. A friend of mine has a carpet knife that looks similar is why I ask.

Thanks Dennis,
That one I cut a little too short, so it couldn't reach into all the corners, (of the circular hole:)). I should have drilled it out and repeened it. It was originally designed to be pretty much a utility knife. One of his brothers is my favorite for leather work. I think the design needs some work, it is an old design. But they are fun and pretty fast to make, so I still like to do them.

Knife No. 150. It is a good one. A rare kitchen knife and fork. Made from 440c. I started this years ago. Michael Miller did the heat treat for me before I had an oven. These have my old stamp on them. Almost vintage. Brass bolsters, stabilized walnut scales, g10 spacers, brass pins, and a very nice walnut storage box. The walnut is from my fathers sawmill. The recipient of this knife will be his niece, my cousin. I hope it becomes an heirloom.

Dennis, when you've made forks do you heat treat them? I've thought several times about making a knife and fork set.

Thanks for the reply Dennis. I suspected so, but wasn't sure.

Sean I sent these out for heat treatment years ago. They have been sitting in a drawer begging for some attention. Michael Miller heat treated them for me. They are hard. I find stainless to be way harder to finish compared to carbon.
