Hand made slicer.

I thought it would be fun to show the process. I use the upper end powder steels, so I start from barstock.

First I draw out the patterns.
Image

Next, the patterns are rough cut and drilled.
Image

After that they are cleaned and stamped and ready for the pre-grind.
Image

I send all my blades out to a professional Heat treatment facility. They are hardened, tempered and receive a cryo treatment. I then have the RC of every blade tested to insure quality. after they return there is forging scale on the blades.

Working the grind up.

I saved a baby squirrel and she still lives in the neighborhood. she stopped by to inspect my work.
Image

Grind about done. Final polish edging and handle to go. I used .110" stock and the grind is zero degree from the top down. Pretty thin if you do the trig.
Image

Here she is. I left a tiny bit of scale at the top of the blade. I thought is looked cool.
