editor’s say

We’re excited to introduce a number of new feature columns in this issue and welcome new reporters and article contributors. One thing that has always impressed me is the level of skills and dedication demonstrated by some of the young makers in this country. In the last issue, we put Leila Haddad in the spot-light, so in this issue we bring to you another exciting young maker from Sydney – Tim Ford. We also bring you the first of our new home-grown makers in a new feature column “Readers’ Creations”.

common misconceptions about knife edges

Knife Grinders www.knifegrinders.com.au When I first decided to start sharpening professionally, I ran across all sorts of myths and misconceptions. I believed and fell for many of these, because on the surface, they seemed like common sense. I still remember those days, and it was amazing that the more I researched how to get a keener edge the more misinformation I came across. So I wasted a bunch of time and money, just like thousands before me have undoubtedly done. For something so basically simple that people have been doing in one form or another for literally thousands of years, I find perplexing the pervasive permeation of blatant misinformation and ignorance in the knife sharpening lore. I don’t know if there is really anything comparable. Myth – The best edge angle is 40-50°for chopping, 30-40°…

2018 blade show atlanta

Kev’s Forge Back in February of 2017 I participated in the ABS Introduction to Bladesmithing course taught by Master Smith Bill Burke, at Eveleigh Works in Sydney. Bill and I got along pretty well and it was during the course that Bill had mentioned to me that a group of Aussies made the trip to the Blade Show each year and that I should consider going. Bill also extended an invitation to stay at his house following the show but that is another story. Over the months following the ABS course I kept in regular contact with Bill and the seed that was planted grew into a reality and before too long rooms and flights were booked. I was going to join the other Aussie makers but as a visitor, not a…

what’s the best steel part 3

If you have been following this series of articles you will now have a basic understanding of the interaction between iron and the various elements the make up the alloys of steel we use to make knives. If you go by the title of the article we are drilling down to discover the “Best Knife Steel”. This is in fact not possible to do. Not only is there an almost infinite array of alloying elements and steel alloys, there are countless variables in heat treating and there is also an almost infinite number of applications for these alloys within the knife industry. There are three main things that make a good knife great (when it comes to performance of the blade). 1) Steel Choice2) Blade Geometry and3) Heat Treating Arguably you could also…
