First off Big THX to “BusterB” for help and advice on making these.

I have a buddy who went to chef school and is a Master Bread Maker. He always makes me Sour Dough when he bakes up breads. Which is 2-3 times a week. All natural, no sugar and it’s just amazing. I knew once I saw these I had to make them. I bought the blades in Bulk and with BusterB’s suggestion of how to pretension them.

Man these are Sharp, made with different scrapes I had laying in the shop.
Thx for looking

I’d sure appreciate it if you’d share info on where to get the blades and how to pretension. This looks like a great gift idea.

Thx everyone, It means alot. I will get the info on the blades and post it along with the advice BusterB taught me. I’m all about paying it FWD, as so many great people on here have helped me over the yrs. I just need to look up the info. I have to fix Airbus with a CGCC Fuel problem. Work first fun later LOL

Very nice! I thought these would make great gifts and I have tried to make one of these using a store bought one for a pattern, but could never get the blade tension right. Looking forward to finding out how to tension the blade.
