I have a few from Jake's hand, and i'm finishing one as we speak.
They're the best knives i've owned for things like woodcarving, making food, etc.
Nothing beats a good scandi grind :D

Not to mention that they look very nice hehe

Spend the whole day making a new knife, and my hands look/feel like it. All started when i found a pic of nice chopping knife from the internet and realized that i got a piece of steel for that.

When i got home and checked the piece, i realized that its 13mm thick... Thought what the heck and grinded a blank with an angle grinder. Then went to my friend Tonis shop to forge a blade from it as my forge is not finished yet. The result is something brutally brutal, heavy, scary, bigass chopper.

Oh, and this one IS for sale. Going to have a leather shieth and paracord wrapped handle. Still needs to be heat treated, sharpened, polished...

Heres some pics :D

heating it, took quite bit of time
Image :D

Starts to get hot!
Image

Checking the thickness, needs some straightening
Image

Forged and rough grinded
Image

THICK! :wink:
Image

Holding it

What ya think? :)

Could chop some food up with that. I was looking at letter openers that look like swords. Ever think about making them?

Samurai sword. I seen them being build on 'How Do They Do That'. It was time lapse of course, very interesting...I'd like to have a real one build for me by a master builder!
