Messing around with 01 tool steel

I’ve recently gotten into knife making, and messing around with metal. I needed to make a fuller in one of the knives I am trying to make (my first knife) So before I muck up countless hours of filing and grinding with a grinder, I figured I’d test this out on a scrap piece I had leftover.

It took 9 minutes, and other than the ton of oil that splattered all over my wasteboard, it turned out half decent, I think I’m gonna go ahead with the real cut, Its the same width just a longer length. I’ll just have to come up with a fancy jig.

Anyways here are some pictures.


yes sir
