Thursday Update

I am going full blast on the new, as yet un-named military fixed blade. These knives are really going to be great.

I also have the blanks about done on the new tactical steak knife. I'm calling this model the Steak Out. Bring one of these to the table you can order your steak extra rare. These blades are made from 1.4116 stainless.

One thing that sets my short run production knives apart from many others is the precision with which I prepare the blanks before sending them out for machine grinding. All of my blanks are either laser or waterjet rough cut slightly oversize. Then I make a fixture and precision contour CNC machine the blank.

I also counter sink all holes and ream to exact size.

In the last week I have reamed and countersunk 3560 holes.

So for all you Beatles fans ... Now I know how many Holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall ...
