Handmade knives takes time to make, you won't regret waiting for one

Today was a 17 hour work day! Here is a summary of what I worked on.

First I got up early at 5.30am, made a cup of coffee and sat down to check up on all the social media, replied to emails and so on. After a couple of hours of that, I got dressed for the shop. Had made a whole list of projects in the shop. And headed to the shop.

The shop is located about 25 minutes in car, so put on the Gary Vee podcast and drove off. 

Hit the shop made a cup of coffee, and got busy. Started with a custom bushcrafter, where the customer requested a longer handle 13cm (5.1in), the handle had been glued onto the tang a couple of days ago. And was now ready for grinding and sanding the shape of the handle. But first that cup of coffee!

While the first bushcrafter was oiled up, I began preparing these two "Bushcrafter v1's" You can see the blue layout fluid and the scribe lines for guidance. The blades had been profiled, drilled, and hardened a couple of weeks ago.

Once the two new bushcrafters had been ground, I was ready to begin handle work. Both of these are going to have yellow scales with a twist.

Here you can see the two bushcrafters. One has a carbonfiber inlay, and the other is without. Both have black liners. The corby screws are stainless steel, same for the lanyard tube. Didn't get further with this build today, but tomorrow I will glueup these two!

Just before I called it for the day. I prepared this set of handle scales with a thin red liner. Excited to see how it will end up, but I have a really good feeling about this.
