The Knife

When you step out the door, it is the first tool in your pack or pocket, it is a sort of companion on all your great adventures. At Hook Knives we believe that companion aught to be a little part of you, a part of who you are. So let us make your dream knife to fit you.

Planer blade knife final grind and cork belt polish

     Well, here she is after heat treat and with the final grind! I recently ordered a few cork belts, a new venture for me and I am rather pleased. The hollow grind is of course, mirror polished with a cork belt which made for a nice crisp line, unlike a buffing wheel which tends to blur grind lines and round edges. The flat portion is hand sanded for a linear 600 grit satin finish.  Lots of work, but worthwhile.  Now for the hardest part, deciding what sort of handle this deserves!
Cheers all!
