New Kiridashi

Yep.  I had yet another project...I recently got a kiridashi for my woodworking.Not a real top end, super nice kiridashi, but something that I could afford more easily.  The kiridashi had grind marks on the edge, the handle and blade cover was quite rough.So I sanded all the wood down and reshaped the very tip of the blade cover a bit.  Of course I had to refinish the entire thing now.  :)Then I sanded, sanded, and yet moooooore sanding on the blade's edge. What appeared to be a flat grind had…See More

Hey man...thanks for the friend request...of course I accepted! As for sending private messages, this is just fine - but if you truely want to send a private message - use the iKC email - upper right hand corner of your page in the area of your name, sign out, Fried requests, etc...

I wanted to start a formal stand-alone CFK group, but I could not accurately gauge  if it would be accepted or not - so I started the it as a sub-group in the Box Full of Knives Box of Knives. I'm glad i did - as I commented to Lead Left Knife Guy , I seem to be the only one playing in that sand box at the moment, and I'm not sure my ego could manage no one join a group!  LoL!

Right now it looks like it's just my thread....but if you add a post to it, then it will be as it is intended - a place to appreciate the CFK/iPAC brand.
