Well, they were the guys who talked me into putting Vol 2 up for sale now instead of waiting for Vol 1 to be finished so, before I did that, I wanted some feedback and they were the logical choice.

Besides, I only got two Christmas cards last year and neither was from you so I don't feel very chastised. Not to mention that you are the one I offered the killer deal on my press and anvil. Now we wait and see if you are driven enough to find a way to take advantage of said deal and make it work for you .....

killer deal indeed but I will probably have to let someone else interested move in on it.....
Nate has much deeper musician pockets than I and he needs a press to fill that new shop !!
if I didn't already have the 50# hammer then probably a different reply !!

Got the video a little while back and I haven't got to watch all of it yet but so far it is well put together and very detailed. I've enjoyed it so far and recommend it to anyone who wants to see in detail the techniques used by a skilled knifemaker.

My second video has recently finished a little field testing and I have been convinced to go ahead and offer it to you now even though it is really intended to be the second volume in a two volume set. The first volume will have more of the most basic stuff on it but it won't be ready for another year and this one will stand by itself. Although I call it the Shop Built Chef's Knife the basic steps apply to any type of knife and even a raw beginner should be able to get some useful information out of it.

The video runs about four hours. I build a chef's knife from start to finish using all the tools in my shop while you basically stand next to me and watch. I tried to leave nothing out, the only time I cut anything was when I would be doing the same thing for many minutes I trimmed out some minutes.

This is a full function DVD complete with an extensive menu system that allows you to return to any step you want to look at at any time. The DVD will play on a computer or on your TV with an attached DVD player. These are the steps that are covered:


Drawing the profile on a piece of steel
Cutting out the profile on a bandsaw and refining the profile on the grinder
Flat grinding the blade (lots of detail) with attention to the proper way to start the grind
Detail on how to avoid plunge cuts
Refining the blade finish with finer belts
Final finishing by hand
How to protect the blade finish as you work on the guard and handle
Milling the guard slot
Fitting the guard
Attaching the guard with JB Weld
How to mark the handle block for drilling the tang slot
Drilling the holes for the tang in the handle block
Creating the slot in the handle for the tang
Finding the position for the handle pin (this is a stub tang handle)
Drilling the handle pin hole in the handle and in the tang
The proper way to fit the pin so that the handle is held securely
Rough cutting the handle to basic shape
How to mix AcraGlas (tricks and techniques)
Gluing the handle (and spacers)
Shaping the handle on the grinder (a Coke bottle shape with a bird's head)
Refining the handle shape (lots of detail here)
Finishing the handle
Marking the logo on the blade
Sharpening

Even if you don't have a shop full of equipment (yet) you should be able to get a lot of useful info out of this. If you would like a copy just Paypal $15 to knives@rayrogers.com (I ship on Tuesday and Friday). If you don't have a Paypal account email me at the same address and we'll work something out...
Question - Ray are you planning on making a Video on a Fixed Blade Hunting Knife anytime soon ? I was going to get your new video then realized it was on a Chefs Knife - Your Forge Building Video was a lot a Fun to watch and really got a kick out a your Fury Friends - "J"

Jeremy,

Yes, I will be starting on Vol 1 very soon now, just waiting for things to dry out and warm up a little around here. Vol 1 will include a build of a hollow ground hunter with a through tang. I hope you will want a copy when it is available but don't let the fact that Vol 2 is about a chef's knife build stop you from building a hunter. All the flat grinding information on the chef's knife will work just as well on a flat ground hunter. The single pin handle that I used on the chef's knife is also my favorite handle to use on a hunter. When Vol 1 is done you will see a hollow ground hunter with a stick tang handle but using the info from both DVDs you could easily make a hollow ground hunter with a single pin handle or a chef's knife with a stick tang - or most any other style knife you might want because the techniques and processes are mostly the same no matter what type knife you're making......

Okay got it. I went to PayPal to transfer and realized I haven't used it in a while and have changed banks. So I have to add this account to my PayPal and don't have all the numbers at hand. Will do and order asap. Thanks.
