This is a few photos from the knife making course I did in September, 2016, following on from the billet making course I did in August, and I talked about in a previous post. I will try and tidy this up, order the photos, and discuss it a bit more soon. Essentially though, its was in a serious of stages, with the steel making bit over one weekend, and then the knife making bit over a second two and a half days.
There was much more grinding and shaping that I envisaged on this course. In fact, once the billet is fairly roughly shaped, a lot of the work is done on the grinder/linisher. So there is a lot of the billet that is simply ground away.
