More on the KITH Glaucus

October 2, 2018

I didn't get to spend much time out in the workshop this last weekend.  I don't seem to be getting much time playing as of late; too many home improvement projects going on at the moment.  Still, I did manage a couple of hours and made a little progress on the Glaucus build.  Here are a few pics of that progress.

 

Here's the contoured handle after spending some time at the grinder.  I took this up to about 1500 grit to get everything smooth and even.  The contouring brings out the features of the G-10.

 

Here's a look at the spine of the handle.  Everything is all bright and shiny.

 

The bolsters have been hand rubbed with 600 grit paper for a nice satin finish.  I'm not really sure if I will keep this finish or not.  I'll mull it over and decide later.

 

The liners get a stipple texture finish at I do with a diamond bit in my rotary tool.  I really like how this texture looks and it adds a little something extra to the knife.

 

The texture is finished.

 

Time to move on to the blade.  I use a 3/32" drill bit and scratch a reference line in the center of the edge that I will use as a guide while grinding.

 

This pic shows the center line that was scratched in.

 

This is my cheap little guide that I attach to the blade to get my plunges aligned.  I have also scratched in a line for the grind termination.  I didn't get a chance to start grinding the blade, but I'm ready to go the next time I get some shop time.  Thanks for following along with this build.
