After final clean-up I'll get the next knife picture posted this week.
He's not taking any new orders at the moment, but he will be. You can see more at his web site.

This is the most recent one. That's a thumb smudge on the blade, sorry. I need to remove some unwanted glue and am having a tough time with it as you can see along the blade and handle area. Tried finger nail polish remover, not mine, but it didn't work. Still have a little bit of finish work and it will be done. Something different!! I had my son design a logo for me so now I need to find someone to make it, looks pretty cool. I'll try to post a picture of it later.

Looks good HM!
Try acitone on a rag while the glue is still wet to remove any unwanted glue from the blade.

That is really looking nice! You have a great eye.

Ah yes, the extra epoxy where the handle and blade meet. The best way to deal with this is to keep it from happening. Like lonehunter said, wipe it off before it cures. Once I get the handle all clamped up and the epoxy is done oozing out I wipe it down well in that area.

However, if you end up with epoxy there (and there always seems to be some on there no matter how careful you are) you can usually get it off. The first thing I try is to use a toothpick. Not those cheap flat ones that break, but the nice strong round ones. I can usually scrape off the extra epoxy with one of those and the toothpick won't scratch the knife blade. If there is too much epoxy for the toothpick, you can CAREFULLY use the tip of a small, sharp pocket knife to scrape/cut the extra epoxy. The other thing I have successfully used for this my buffer. You just need to make sure that the buffer doesn't scratch the blade either. My advantage is that I polish my own blades. That way I simply use the same buff and rouge for removing the epoxy as I used on my last blade polishing step.

Be careful using chemicals to remove the epoxy. If you find a chemical that removes the epoxy from the blade, it can remove the epoxy from between the wood and the knife tang if you get too much on there.

Just finished this one. It's another kit knife for a friend.

HM, that is an awesome looking knife, I think you may have the natural knack for the hobby of knife making. Good Job !!!

DVW your knife is awesome too!!! I'm on a break from knife making myself, thanks to a Flu that came to visit but I'm looking forward to getting on my next knife soon.

Spent the day in S. Ohio at a speciality wood shop and came home with some really wild looking exotic handle material. I'll post a couple of pictures later as I'm now waiting for blades to arrive. Was a 12 hour day down and back. I have a couple of the English damascas (spell)? blades heading my way and a woodsman blade that looks like the old Sharp Finger model. Good time to clean the shop area.

playing with some of the walnut and thought this might sell on e-bay as a combo, any thoughts??? Has a little dust on it but will polish up pretty well.

I think it looks really nice. Personally, I've never seen much profit for custom knives on ebay. You would probably be better off with some place like Arizona Custom Knives.
