It's Been A Long Time

Well, folks, it's been a long time since I've posted anything here on the Old Stump.  I have been pursuing other interests and haven't had a lot of interest in woodcarving or woodcarving tools. Lately I've started to miss making chips and the fun and joy that comes with it, not to mention that I miss all of my friends in the woodcarving community.  In order to inspire myself to get back into woodcarving, I decided to make myself a new knife.  Since I was making one, I thought why not make a whole batch of new knives and offer them to the public.  In the past I have used floor scraper blades for the blades of my knives.  Now I have the equipment of a real knife shop and have the ability to shape and heat treat my own blades.  So, I decided to use some high quality O1 tool steel to make these blades.  I must say, they turned out really nice.  Here's a group photo of the batch.

Nine of the ten are now available over on the Available Knives Page of the Old Stump.  I hope to get started on something new and maybe take you along for the ride.  Thanks for stopping by.
