This is the members of the last falls test session. Each one brought a knife to test doing something new and we had a ball. I was too busy running around and learning I did not get a chance to take enough pictures, this year I will take photos and keep a running account of what is tested.

Thanks Tom, I just heated it a little too hot the last time and it shows all thee way through, should be fun testing.

These are the men who came to the last testing seminar. I got too excited and did not take pictures or record what happened, this year I plan on concentrating about my job!

Those of you who have something to share, be it some great new process or a failure bring it along and we can all learn from it.

Been a while sense checking back in here! I'm really glad to see you testing Ed! That's a nice looking knife, to bad she was got to hot;)  Sometimes mess ups are just the perfect excuse to test! Great stuff. Fantastic group of guys behind you as well.

IMHO, that is one of the best blades I've ever seen, Ed! Such perfection needs replication before destruction!

Good to see you here, Daniel, and Thank You Kindly. Smiley

Annie and I had a fabulous time at the Fall Test Session, and we are very much looking forward to the next gathering.

A little better photo, the top one is the blade I over heated while hardening, the bottom one is the replacement blade, it is 5 1/4 inches long, came out just right, in good light you can see 5 transition zones, my photography is a little lacking at present, but will be getting better, I promise. The customer for this blade is a little particular so I am also working up another blade, just a little different so he will be able to choose.

I reckon all your customers are "a little particular", Ed. That's the way it should be, and why people insist on having YOU make their knives!
