4 knife update finally! And good news!

Thu Aug 29, 2013 5:37 pm

I finally had some time and energy to get some stuff finished up today! One knife needs a few more etching cycles (damascus blade) and then the final sharpening, but they are pretty much ready to ship tomorrow!

These 3 fillet blades are going to the same customer:
6" carbon Damascus blade, Ironwood Burl handles and Mosaic pins:

The good news part is that I got my official Promotion Letter today! Promotion to Dispatch Supervisor takes effect on Monday, but I still have to go thru a full background check and Psych Eval and pass those OK, but I've had full background checks before and the psych eval should be OK.

Psych Eval seemed to go well, wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it was 3 hours long. Over 500 "fill in the bubble with a #2 Pencil" questions, plus an essay.

For the weekends, we are on 10 hr shifts, so that kills free time on the weekends for me, not sure how long we will be on the extended shifts :(

Quick pic of what is on the bench, hope to finish these off when I get home from work today!
