- Feb 24, 2005New knife posted in the photo section (#61 & 62)
is a "Goliath" blade (14") with a juniper
burl handle. Also pictured is a hand made blade
created using the stock removal method. This
involves using your eyes and hands, working with a
metal band saw, grinder, belt sander, files and
sandpaper, to form a blade from a block of steel.

functions of humankind continues to take place.
