    Gritty look on the acid wash. Looks very, err, stony.
    I'm keen to take a close look on the weekend.

    And if I push process the film to ISO 1600 it will be even grittier still!

    I posted this one off last week, the new owner intends hunting some highland piggies and deer and wanted something hard wearing with a handle that won't slip in snow and mud. Blade is M390, handle is scalloped G10.

    Here's another one out the gate, already in the loving care of its new home. 0.5 micron polished RWL34 with gidgee handle. This one has a slightly longer blade than I normally do on this pattern, seems to work.

    Here's me mucking around with some more M390. A nicely sized hunter/skinner, still in the making, prior to handle etc. I've experimented with polishing this blade, only done one side so far, so there's green tape covering the other. The question is, does it take a polish? Well,.. yes is the answer, about the same as RWL34, though the colour of the M390 steel is slightly warmer. However, the effort required to work this steel after heat treating means it'll be a rare occasion I get sweet talked into doing it again. If you've got a mechanical methodology for polishing then you're probably laughing, if you're relying on sandpaper and elbow grease then you'll be crying. The flick shows it at the equivalent of 13,000 grit.

    Here's a biggish hunting knife, still working on it, but worth a photo I thought. Variously abused 52100 blade wearing a birdseye cocobolo burl handle. This is the really dense, heavy cocobolo from a couple decades ago. Spine is chipped, tang is tapered, all that stuff.
