19 ? holy mackerel ! I'll say that should keep you busy....Ha ha !
I got the profiling done on some more stainless blades that the holes need drilled and the flats cleaned up...once these are ready for heat treat I think that will make 19 that I will send out to peters which should keep me busy for a long tim.
Then I have a large hunter Im working on that will sport Bocote scales and a hand rubbed finish.

Beautiful! Do you dye each piece of leather to get that cool banding look?
Wouldn't every scandi grind have a tiny bevel from sharpening or is a scandi brought to sharp by the grind itself? AND....is every scandi a hollow grind or straight grind? I have only been doing flat/straight grinds so pardon my ignorance.
Agreed. A scandi that is effectively a zero grind may be traditional, but they are a pain to sharpen without trashing the looks of the finish. A good beater knife with a scandi grind is easy to sharpen- you don't need to care about angles since you lay the flat on the stone and go to town. But to get the bevel looking good again is a mighty task. A tiny secondary bevel never hurt anybody.
