Knives on The Stump III

During my last visit in workshop I made a photo of almost all fixed blades that are being made. Also a photo of two almost finished knives with natural canvas micarta (I need to make a leather sheath for them).

Christmas Grinding

A short photostory from last Christmas when I found some time to visit my workshop
I started from gathering all the knife steel I have. It occuerd that there
is a lot of it... I found some RWL-34, D2, N690, AEB-L, NZ3, NC6

Safety first!
I cut the blades with an angle grinder and a bow saw
