Holy Shit!! That is Sweet!! Is she yours Ed or someone elses?? I would love to check out a knife like this in real life. Very Very nice! Thank you for showing her to us. Did Michael Price Jr do any such grinds or was his mostly all flat grinds??

Ed I have sat in your shop and used your torch a few times and for the life of me I could not remeber what was on the end of it. Thanks for the  answer.

The information Rex and you have discussed is very interesting indeed! I did not think 52100 would get that hard. I thought maybe around a 63to64 would have been the hardest. I have a piece of 52100 that is pretty thin probley just under an 1/8". I have not been sure what to do with it. I have wondered how something that thin would handle the edge flexes and  90 deg. bend test. Something to think about and try someday.

This thread realy didn't go as planned. Sorry for being a slacker and not getting this thing done yet. You know haow it goes ya get busy and the one projects leads to another. Anyway thanks for all the comments. This little honey of a blade has been hanging out in the freezer for the past month or two and she is still on my mind. I did do the 3 thermal cycles and three post grinding quenches, and then done 3 anneal cycle with 12 hours in the freezer inbetween each aneal cycle and that is where I left her she has been in the freezer at that stage for the past couple of months. So now I guess it is ready to start the hardening cycles.
 Ed what size of a rosebud are you using?? Was it a #2?? If you are carefull is it ok to use the cutting torch if you don't have a rosebud?? Is this blade still good to go after having set this long in the freezer. Do you think there is anything I need to do before proceeding?? Thanks for all your help!

Nice going guys! Way to use what ya got! I am very glad you guys are able to work on knives in your spare time. My forge is a coal burner that I made out of an old brake drum from a 2 ton truck. I welded legs on the bottom a piece of plate in the center with a 2 inch nipple sticking out of the bottom. Off the the 2" nipple I screwed on a tee with one opening facing down and one horizontal. the One facing down is capped off and used for a clean out and the horizontal opening has a ball valve screwed in it with a blow dryer stuck in the the valve. This way I can turn on the blow dryer and turn the ball valve to adjust my air flow. It actually works pretty decent. So if you have access to some sort of valve you could use it as an air controller and that will help to adjust your heat. I hope my rambling on makes sense. Keep up the good work and Thanks for serving our country. Now lets see some finished knives!

That is Awsome!! With a teacher like you Jared and all your knowledge of lady knife he could end up being one heck of a knife maker. My son is 7 and he is currently working on his first knife also. It is way fun! I can't believe how excited they get over just the small steps. I still get excited when making a knife, but not as much as my son. I guess I was probly that excited on my first though. Don't get me wrong I still get very excited and sometimes even butterflies when I learn something new. It's just fun to watch them and how much excitement they have.

Neat Find Jimmy!! I have seen the Dr. Lucie/Scagel knives on ebay for that hefty price before and was a little curious my self for it being so much. The only thing I could come up with was Lucie has studied and associated himself so much with Scagel. Anyone else have any comments on this??

Hey Ed Ol Buddy,
 I absolutely love your stories. Not only are the entertaining they also have a lot of good lessons and history in them. I realy think you need to tranform this story into an article for Blade. Or maybe you already have. I realy think you need to right down your history of knife making from how you started to where you are now. It would be a great history to have in writing. Thanks, Shane

I had a great at the show. It was great to see you guys there. I thought the show went very well. There was a few table holders that was there last year but not this year, but there were new table holders to take their place. I thought it was fairly busy overall and had a good turn out. Sales were up slightly for me compared to last year. All in all I had a great time, but wished I could have spent more time visiting with the guys ( Ed, Butch, Chris ect.). Hope to see ya all again soon

WOW!! Smokin Beautifull Blade Jared!! Can't wait to see her all done up. I bet she will be a beauty.

Hey Rob,
That was an excellent answer to Ed's question! If the best working knife is what you want to make, then you are definently in the right place. Ed and everyone else on this forum are very nice and helpful. Eds the best in the industry when it come to hard working comortable knives. I went to his seminar a few months back and it was the best week I have had in  my 4 years as a knife maker. I do enjoy making art knives as well, but they don't hold a candle in performance compared to the knives made using Ed's techniques. Welcome aboard and hope you feel at home here. Post lots of questions and read a lot of the a old posts and that will help you along your way. Thanks, Shane
14  KNIFE TALK / General Discussion / Blade West Coming UP Soon!! on: August 16, 2009, 12:59:30 PM
Blade West is just around the corner. I'm so excited!! Who else is going?? This is my second year having a table there. I hope to have around a dozen knives or so. I may have a couple extra VIP passes if anyone needs one. How many knives are you guys gonna have ready?? Hope to see ya all there, Shane
15  KNIFE TALK / General Discussion / A little off topic but watch out for this scam!! on: August 16, 2009, 12:54:12 PM
A 'heads up' warning for all, especially your men friends who may be regular Home Depot customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic.

Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your
friends.


**Here's how the scam works:**

Two very hot 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts.


It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot. You agree and they get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you and playing with your privates, while the other one steals your wallet.


I had my wallet stolen May 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th,
& 24th. Also June 1st, 4th, twice on the 8th, 16th, 23rd, 26th, 30th,
three times last Saturday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.


So tell your friends to be careful.
