Fillet knives in progress!

    This is something I am trying. Working up 3 knives at once. So far they are shaped out and refined to near finish dimensions.
    These are all AEBL stainless at 63 rockwell hardness. Length is 180 to 185mm.

    Yep, I had one order, and wanted one myself. So I thought I'd try doing a batch of three and see how it goes.
    One will be ironwood, one oak (for me), and one may be ebony with nickel silver I am thinking, but that could change.
    The order and mine will have sheaths for sure.
    Below is the first short fillet I did with a sheath, so something like that sheath for these larger knives.

    Work in progress on these fillet knives. Rough grinding done and just started to refine them at 80 grit. They have decent tip flex at this point. 120 then 220 grit to finish refining the geometry and final flex. Then polish with 340.

    Couple of flex pics after final grinder refinement. This is about how I like them.
    This one I took a tad thinner for a request.

    Now on to hand sanding!

    Sanded, ready for logo. They always demand a drop or two of blood before they are finished... :\
    I kind of like the smokey logo, but it will be cleaned up...
