    Here’s all the knives I finished up for my Christmas orders.
    (I have a lot of dead box elder trees in the forest by my house. They all have lots of red in them.)

    S35vn with box elder burl and box elder branch. I tried a convex grind on this one and just couldn’t get the grinder scratches out of the middle portion. I ended up acid etching it because the Center had scratches but the outer edges were polished. The etch kind of helped blend it together.



    W2 chef with a pinecone handle. I did the hamon with Uni-bond 33 from sounding stone. So if you’re in Winnipeg it’s very easy to get.

    W2 pairing knife with box elder burl. Acid etched with a nail polish splatter.


    1095 slicer with bocote and a box elder branch separating the bocote pieces. This hamon was done with satanite.



    Happy new year everyone!

    Looking good Joel! I like the 1095 chef's knife with bocote composite handle. Nice hamon on that one and the W2 chef with pinecone handle.

    Happy New year!

    Wow! Some very detailed work Joel. Do you do your heating in an oven or forge? I've never attempted a hamon but looks beautiful and the Sounding stone is doable. Thanks for the inspiration

    Thanks Russ! I heat treat in an oven, and quench in brine heated to 90C.
