Friday at the Virginia Beach Farmers market was finally a pretty good day.

One fellow dropped off a Nice Benchmade “INFIDEL” and 3 sets of pinking shears and then a lady pulls up with a gathering of kitchen knives (7). I like it. will sharpen Infidel tomorrow or sun. fixed the point today.

some pics at the end


Good luck to everyone – see u on the bay for Saturday hunting for yellow metal…

In California, if you are caught carrying a knife of that type? they charge you with a felony. Ouch!

Tuffy I was watching "blasting cap or AA" and was admiring your ocean front. Never been to your part of the country? It looks real pretty!!

I've been thinking about how I would approach that blade since you first mentioned it. How do I bring both edges together and both sides -- down to that point?

The repeatability of the WE helps when you have to flip the knife and precisely repeat what you just did on the other side, I would imagine/assume.

I may again believe in Santa.... almost a Christmas Gift, I was digging through some old boxes of my Dad's I hadn't cleaned out in 10 years. I found a knife blade blank -- a spear point. I can already see I need to keep an eye on keeping it "plumb" in the vise. If I don't embarrass myself, I'll post progress photos.

I'm off to explore the Search functions of both this Forum and then Google to see if I can find videos and, especially, really high-level magnification photos. I want to be able to see and be able to visualize how everything come down to that point. (Visions of mirror images dance in my mind's eye!)

If anyone has links or photos or advice, please reply.

Tuffy, I am so impressed with your work and have learned so much watching your videos.

To my eye.... Beautiful. Really beautiful.

Thank you.

Happy New Year.

For Now,

Gib

Nice job Tuffy.

I get paranoid about getting metal dust into the actions of my autos/assisted/ and even my folders, so I always tape off
that area where blade enters handle to seal it.
