I wouldn't bother with glass. If you can get a reasonable angle on the blade, it will chip. Quickly.

That's because volcanic rock is more a rock, such as obsidian. The mechanical properties will be very different from a clear pane of common glass, which seems to be what he wants to use.

Polycarbonate is much better than Plexiglas if you wish to go with plastic.

Made a knife today..1 piece of carbon steel, hardened and tempered. Fairly small, but holds nicely and is very sharp..Not sure what to do for a finish yet. Thinking of just running a buffing mop over it or blueing it..or just leaving it as it is, has a nice finish already..

Made a new knife today. Polished stainless steel, the blade pattern is by Daithi OCeileachair. Hardened by austenitizing then tempering. Pink cord wrapped handle for breast cancer awareness :wink: .

Hey, guess what kind of camera fnord has.

This is the knife I mentioned earlier in this thread. Since I know nobody wants to go back and look for the specs, here they are

12 1/2" overall length, blade 8"
Hardend 440C stainless(plate quenched, cryo-treated and double tempered at 350F, so it should be in the 58-60hrc range.
Brass finger guard, kinda dull atm. Soldered on with tix solder.
Partial tang that goes nearly to the bottom of the handle, cemented in with JBweld.

It was slightly dull after heavy use for a month(trees), but 10 minutes with a whetstone brought it back to razor-sharp.

edit, material cost...
Steel $40
Sanding belts $20
Dry-ice for cryo $20
Solder and JB $20
everything else was free
Would have cost a lot more than $100 to buy custom!

gosh, that's sharp

Angled with flash to show the stripes in the handle. The cool thing about this wood is the stripes change and dissappear depending on how you look at it. I'm pretty sure it's tiger maple.

The blade is mirror polished with 1500grit sandpaper and polishing compound. Looks a bit scuffed up in the picture but in reality you can see your reflection clearly in it.

Edit, close up of the blade edge. You can see two small nicks that are around 1/100th of an inch deep
