Apologies for my absence, things have been a little... hectic for me lately. About 2 years ago, my mother in law was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. She had been responding well to the treatments up until about March. I will spare you all the details, but basically, my wife and I have just finished moving her into our house, by ourselves. Meanwhile, my wife just graduated pharmacy college right in the middle of all this. It basically boiled down to me having 2 weekends to pack and move my MIL, due to all the recent graduation events in my family, among still working full time etc...
Anyway, enough whining. Seems to be calming down a little now, I actually got some shop time in this weekend. I had Dimec make me some Ctek a few months ago, decided I would make a folder out of it. Came out so nice, I had Dimec make me MORE Ctek so I can do a full size knife in it as well
Here are some pics:
I got a woodie and a bushtool ground and heat treated this weekend, and this is what a folder blade looks like about half way through being made. Got the folder blade heat treated today, but I still have to finish grinding the bevel, and obviously, make it fit in the folder.
