These are knives I am currently working on as of
1-12-08
They are all ready to be heat treated and then I can finish them up.Right now they are just dry fitted for the handles I will be using.The 2 bottom sawmill blades will have wooden handles put on them.The top seven with the exception of the cable knife have all been forged from 52100 bearing steel

I now have them heat treated and am begining to put them together.Hopefully soon to have them on a finished knives page.1/28/08
 
Just made up a new batch 2/23/08 and have them rough ground and picked out the handles that will be used on each of them
 
Just did up another batch on 3-15-08 they are forged to shape and cleaned up.I just need to grind them now
