Hey From Oklahoma

Post by jayd001 » Wed Jul 06, 2022 10:52 pm

I started my fascination with knives at a very young age. It's grown over the years to a point where I questioned how many knives was enough, you can never have too many. In early 2000's I began repairing folders and that turned into making my own knives.

You've ticked every box to be a knife man. Started young, how many is enough, etc, etc,. Welcome, you will fit right in here. ::nod:: ::tu:: ::handshake::

I have another passion and that's cars, especially old cars. After about four years of labor I recently completed the design and fabrication of a 1930's style race car. Maybe not appropriate for a knife forum but some of you might appreciate my effort. Thanks

Here's a link to a short YouTube video of my car.

Awesome knives, jayd, which is an understatement. If you click the " on this post you'll see the trick to posting YouTube links, here's your vid-

I believe you're correct in saying, a feller can't have too many knives!

The black spots on the blade was junk in the 440C bar stock I got at a gun/knife show years ago, showed up after heat treat.

This blade cracked near the tip about 2" long after heat treat.

Even though the tip broke you still wound-up with a nice short sword/knife with a tonto blade Jay, not so bad. I really like your work specially the innovative designs, and am also most pleased that you're an auto knife lover, there's not enough of us jus' like there's not enough knives!
