This morning ground my first 15n20 blade. Lots to learn but overall I'm very happy with this start. I had a friend profile and heat treat my blanks so I can spend my time practicing grinding blades. All the folder guys grind their blades heat treated so I figure this should work for my little flat ground neck knife. Took the finish to 400 grit and the bevel down to 0.020". #wip #knifemaker #edc #usnstagram #customknives #customlights
Monday Preview. This unique copper #malihini #flashlight has a crossed flute pattern from @dawson_machine_craft experimenting with his machine. This light will be a #gaw (giveaway) going live later this week. #edc #usnstagram #customknives #customlights @dawson_machine_craft
Finished this #malihini #flashlight out for one of the SUS winners from yesterday.  I think it looks great with the Kenny Onion / @jeffparkknives laser engraved Dragon clip to match the @cwf_lights Dragon driver and matching green secondary emitters. #edc #usnstagram #customknives #customlights @dawson_machine_craft

Since I proved to myself I was able to profile blade blanks on my own in my shop  with my portaband and grinder,  I'm having a friend waterjet profile my blades for me so I can focus my time on learning to grind. #wip #knifemaker #edc #usnstagram #customknives
Monday preview for this week's #malihini #flashlight #sus . We've got #zirc and 2-tone anodized Ti for this weekend. May be able to squeeze in one or two more lights by Friday.  This is likely the last #sus of the year so that collectors can redirect focus of spending on family, friends and good causes. #edc #usnstagram #customknives #customlights @dawson_machine_craft
Built out the red patina copper #malihini #flashlight with a nice #steelflame Crusader clip and @cwf_lights red #dragon engine.  For me, the aesthetic of this combo really hits on all cylinders. This one headed out tomorrow to our #sus winner! #edc #usnstagram #customknives #customlights @dawson_machine_craft
#knifemaker #wip grinding practice on knife #2. Same design as the first. I think this is going to be a really nice handy size neck knife once I get better at grinding. I'm super happy with the progress from the first one. #edc #usnstagram #customknives #madeinoregon
