The stainless damascus comes already hardened and is noted as being 56-58 R. The carbon damascus I harden myself the same as I do for the carbon blade I do to 60+ R.

Dr Ray, that book fills pretty quickly, have you ordered a Chefs knife yet?

I did just keep the peace, not really. My wife’s a chef and I have good tools so should she.

I got the 5-1/2” V.G pattern with a pretty handle. Honestly it’s got a great natural feel on the handle and is well balanced. She works in a kitchen but this is for home use and you guessed it it’s favoured over the Victorinox daily.

She has plenty of commercial offerings, as I say, good tools but I recommend adding a Von Gruff to your kitchen for anyone who appreciates a good knife and good food.

No kitchen knives for me.
Wife aka Sparky Critter bought something recently.
We have quite a few that are very very sharp.

Have finalised what the two knives will be and what they will be like but it will be a week or two till I can get to them. Really enjoying the challenges I have been getting lately as well as the standards I have on the pattern rack that have proved themselves over time and use.
Next three are one standard and two new styles that are an interesting departure from what I have been doing then a couple of standards before I can start on Dr Rays two new ones but I am excited about the oportunity and chalenges that they will bring.

All of Garry's knives are awesome, I'm having difficulties describing his latest accomplishments. They are either more awesome or awesome(r.) Garry, at any rate I hope you just keep on making them and enjoying yourself while doing so.

Whoops
The black - what is it?
My fat thumb and apparently my fast typing = typos
So any suggestions Ridgewalker for another knife??
@Dr Ray
It seems a shame to hide that knife in a display case, at least use it once and give us a report on it. It was built to work and show off not hide.

Made a new die for the power hammer that I will need to work with this after it is straightened and normalised before I start to forge one of the new ones

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?

Do you still have the set of gaiters you talked about on the site? Gerry
