Here are the some pics of the two blades I've been working on since my "chipping" issue. Sorry for the iffy photos but the Dslr is on loan to a friend tonight. Figured I might as well add a few shots while I wait to find some parts for a forge from work. (Somewhere there's an old metal sink and bouncy house blower just waiting to be foreclosed on.
(The dog's have been murdering the grass by the patio cover, anyone want a Visla and Springer Spaniel
Still need to finish off the top and touch up part of the handle, but the basic shape is definitely getting to where I want it.
Quick and dirty cord wrap for proof of concept. Concluded I would be drilling a few holes, but no more unwanted chipping on the second one.
I'm thinking I might borrow a friends bench grinder to put a hollow grind on the Skinner. Or should I just go with a scandi / flat ? Seems like most people have different opinions on what grind works best for dressing. My experience has only been using hollow on large game, so if anyone has used a different type lemme know what yah think!
Thx for reading / picture surfing
