Not sure who turned me onto Neeman Tools, might have been RFA~ This is my first of what will now be a few purchases from them, now. Metallurgy at a high form, life time investment. If I had to use one word it was be "wicked" with SOB's accent! No free rides around here, right to work.

These are my attempts at puukko knives, traditional hunting knives of the finnis and Saamii tribes. The handles are usually made of birch but i had none. White area is antler from a Mule deer, they'd normally use reindeer. These are first attempt so be gentle, they are shaving sharp.

[report]Im still trying to make a complete knife from scratch. I am getting better at grinding, though I paid enough for the grinder to outfit myself 4 times in fly gear. Its a 2"x72" belt sander made for knife making. the rest of the tools I already had. I am only now waiting to buy a small forge so I can heat treat my steel without having a second party do it. So here is a quick overview of what I do to make a knife, the finished product may take awhile until I get heat treatment done but I will have the bevels ground next segment. The knives here are one of my own design, a couple nessmuk hunters, and a skinner that is probably way to thick.

Some soon to be knives all cut outta steel from the New Jersey Steel Baron in 1084 (easy to heat treat), O-1 tool steel, also easy, and some 80crv. All good, cheap, high carbon steels.
Image
I hope to have some time next week to bevel the edges of these 4 blades. I wish I could snow the amount of fire and sparks the grinder puts out but that'd take a video.[/report]

Can't wait to see the progress. I recently caught an episode of a knife making competition/reality show on the History Channel called Forged in Fire. I'd never seen the process before and the show sucked me in. Looks like a cool hobby.

And another thing…your shop's total lack of organization is a sign of genius. (That's what I tell my wife when she complains about my tying desk.)

I'm digging the puukkos pimp. Nice work. I'm surprised by the number of puukkos styles that have really short blades (like half the length of those). Yours look look damned functional.
