Japanese Water Stone

My friend sent me a 1500 and 8000 grit combo Japanese water stone and a Negura slurry stone.

 I sharpened my kitchen blades first just to get used to how the slurry worked. It worked damn good! 5 minutes per knife was all it took.

 Here's the result;
The result of thinking about other things

The little bastige that done it!!

I was peeling a mango. Lucky it wasn't the Red Imp razor, that would have sliced to the bone.

TB Knives artwork

Collection of three, Australian hardwood handles, mirror polished carbon steel blades, brass fittings, hidden full tang.
Milknife top
Bowie middle
Bush utility bottom







Push dagger, spear shape carbon steel blade, slight mirror polish, brass fitting, hardwood grip












Two push daggers and a bush utility. Micarta handles, the yellow one looks like bone in a different light.











Black ebony and bone micarta, mirror polished blades. Works of great beauty.












Different view of above two, see how the yellow handle is looking more like bone?










Looks even more like bone with a mirror polish of it's own.










Milknife with a mysheaths.com custom belt sheath. Australian hardwood handle, brass fittings and polished blade, now resides on the belt of a cavalry man.










Two of a kind? Bead blasted blades, olive canvas micarta handles. I have the Milknife, the push dagger when to a "government employee"










Hadji Smatchet, black micarta handle, full hidden tang, brass guard. Now travelling around Afghanistan taking in the sites.










These are just some of the masterful work of TB knives. He does excellent work and I am proud to be associated with him.
