no i dont make the blades myself, i send a drawing to blade makers and they do it for me, i put on the scales and do leather/kydex sheats for them. I want to start grinding my own blades and maybe sometime i will doing that.

(Definitely not what I would classify as "typical Swedish") no when im started doing knives i was just doing swedish knives but i got tired of it, now its 90% full tang knives im doing.

thanks all

Hey Martin,

I've thought of doing that myself and have seen how they do that in Laguiole. Basically they "just" use a belt grinder to shape the scales after they fixed them to the blade. Is that how you do it?

i mostley juse files and sandpaper after i saw out the shape of the scales, its many ways to do it but in the end its the finish that counts :)
