  • New knives

    Well, after reading Hal in Seattle's blog post about making a cheap Oar Carver from a Rough Rider Sowbelly lockback, I went to the Bladematrix site and purchased two RR Sowbelly LBs. I took them and modified the clip point blade into a shorter Wharncliff. I now have two "Po-RR Carvers", one with a 1 3/4" blade and one with a 1 1/2" blade. I may modify the blades even more, but for now they work great.

    I also decided to try the Lynn Doughty Ol' reliable and bought a Stanley "Classic" No. 199 and have been playing with it since I watched Lynn's videos. It has proven to be less reliable than Lynn's, but I haven't gien up yet.

    Anyway, I thought I'd share a picture with you all.

    I'm with you Ed. Old reliable just doesn't do it for me. I like the feel of my razors much better. Lynn sure makes it look easy. Your two new knives look like they should work ok.

    Nice job, Tom E
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

      Nice job Ed ! I bought a RR on Ebay, I will make an attempt at modifying when I get some free time.
