          Yeah Rick, I'm with Callynne. Let us know if you want to start selling them. I'd love to have a nice hand made carving knife. Beautiful job.

              Glad you like seeing my knives, but I make them in my spare time, so most end up going to carving shows for raffles.

              I would be happy to show (in detail) the process of making one if anyone would be interested.

                  I for one would really like to see the process used for making knives if they can turn out like the ones you make. Thanks for offering and I am looking forward to seeing your post on this.

                    Rick: Nice looking knives, I agree I would like to see the knife making process step by step.

                    thanks

                      I know I will never, ever make a knife but I'd sure be interested in seeing how it's done! Callynne

                        Re: More Knives

                        I would definately like to see the whole process. Are there any special tools required to make these knives? I would love to make a couple for myself.

                        I sometimes wish that I had a certain shaped blade while I'm trying to carve something. It would be great to make one up rather than searching for something that may or may not exist!!

                          Very beautiful work Rick.
                          Looks like I need to spend more time on the handle when I make my next one. I usually spend hours shaping the blade and minutes on the handle.

                            Okay, I will start photographing the process of making an ebony handled carving knife with a 1-1/2 inch blade.
                            When finished, I will post it on Picturetrail with descriptions of the process.

                              I decided to make the handle from Maple burl because lines will not show up well on ebony.

                                I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                                Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                                With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
