This weekend's project. I've got 3 now in progress. This is closest. Bandsaw blade, claro walnut handle. brass pins. This is the 1st knife that I have put epoxy to. Waiting on cure and finish sand, then finish wood. Probably Tru Oil. Not sure yet. Thoughts?

Looks very nice! Are you peening the brass pins or sanding smooth.

Sanding the pins. On 600 grit now. Little mineral spirits to see grain.

Looks nice! What kind of tempering and annealing did you do? I bought a bunch of O1 to make some dog leg chisels for a carving I'm making but ended cutting it apart to attack the parts that I would have gotten with those chisels.

See hardness test a couple post down on main page.

Took it to red hot nonmagnetic, quenched in warm oil. Tempered in oven 400 degress for an hour, cool to room temp and once more in oven for hour. O1 tool steel is same.

Yes sir, tool steel is pretty easy to harden and I only temper once at 400 degrees for 2 hours, very good steel for beginner knife makers and makes a very nice blade.
