    I finally haz a logo(still in the mail), a new shed and some unfinished blades.

    So after more then 30 years since I started making knives ( including a few breaks where i stopped for maybe a total of 12 years so I'm out of practice) I have a logo ( in the mail from America.
    A guy called Scott Cook - Boompa's Forge on Facebook. 60 bucks USD including design and 5 copies of the logo and 3 stickers seems ok. The logo will be a bit smaller as I wanted him to take out the space to make it smaller. Picture of my head done by me and converted by him.

    There's also ANOTHER hard cored stainless steel patterned knife I have to handle - this one I wanted a spear point for general purpose use. China made hard cored patterned steel.

    There's also 2 knives ground or of 440C.
    I want to get at least 10 blanks to send out to heat treating.

    If I had to name the model of I got professional (lol as if) I would call it the compromiser....
    I had the pattern traced out on a bit of paper.
    I wanted it 21cm long roughly.
    I wanted it out of 3/16ths steel or 1/4 inch and a tapered tang.

    I've moved most of my steel to the new shed at the other house.
    So all I have here is a few bits of 440C and D2 and none of it in 3/16ths.
    It was also 46cm long so I thought why waste the steel and made 2 of them 23cm each(and there's some days where an extra 2cm would come in handy).
    Tapered tang not really needed on 3.6mm steel either I don't think.
    So yeah compromise.
    Oh well I better get to sleep. Starting work at 2300 so I might get 1.5 hours of rest before work.
