Wow, you made that shaping look so easy

It's great to see how individual each blade is, truly an Master Craftsman at work there mate.

Great to see the whole process.. makes you appreciate the skill, experience and attention to detail that's gone into your knives mate.

Great tutorial Bernie.
What grit belt were you using when you did the final grinding before the HT?

Of course, it takes Bernie six weeks per knife, hence his obligatory six month waiting list as any good knife maker worth spit should have!
