Blade blanks on the way

Just a while ago I got a confirmation that blade blanks will be shipped to me shortly. At this point, those are in a pretty raw state and need finishing touches, including sharpening. I’m still prototyping a bit with the blades but closed beta testing shouldn’t be too far in the future.

The next steps for the prototyping are:

  • Finalize the first prototype knife. Needs a bit more grinding to be done.
  • Start designing sheath. There are two options for the sheath in my mind, but likely I will go with the Ka-Bar style sheath.
  • Make handle reproducible. It is easy to make a handle, but I haven’t done those in batches so I need to see how it goes.
