« Part 10: A knife for Kaj Part 11 of 5 Knives series Part 12: Pink wood... yup.. »

In varying stages of finish.. there are some rough shapes.. smooth shapes..
then I took it to Kaj. Marked where he wanted the thumb points.
I have used the rough belt sander.. a runover with a hand sander.. 120 grit for 20 mins hand sanding..
Quick hits with the rough belt, quick buzz with hand sander. 120 for 10 mins on the thum notches. 400 grit on the knife for 15 mins.
I gave it a rub with tung oil.
I will wire wool it tomorrow and another coat.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks stefang. Not bad for finnish firewood..
I have found a part that needs some more shaping (Flattening). I will have a look again tomorrow after college.
