    While some have had a lot of time to potter in the shop during the pandemic, I have been working a regular shift and some. Last weekend I was able to work on some new blades to try and catch up.

    The first one up is a KN67 kitchen utility in AEB-L and stabilized red maple burl.

    The second is a TP4 boning knife in S35VN and ironwood.

    Up last is a KN71 7" chef's knife in AEB-L with a red stabilized maple burl handle.

    Hope that you are getting your grind on too!

    Very Clean looking knives Dan.

    How are you doing your logo? It looks grey and doesn't looked etched? I like it.

    Hi Scott. Thanks!

    The mark is electrolytic etched. I etch then mark to blacken it. Then some Windex and a light buff with a blue pad (non-scratch) so it loses some of its blackness. I wish it would stay black. I recently picked up some Birchwood-Casey Aluminum Black, which I was hoping would stick, but it doesn't do a thing on Stainless Steel. Works great on copper, brass, alum and low chromium/low nickel steel.
