Not many Updates!

You may have noticed there have not been many updates for this project so far (well, only one update to be honest)...

Things are happening in the background though.

So far we have the steel for the blades (we ended up going for Nitro-V in the end). The sheet has had some sanding/preparation done to it - but has more to go (will get a photo of that soon).

Here is some aluminium we took delivery of:

.

What is the aluminium for you ask?

Well, this is for making the fixture/pallet system on the milling machine that will hold the the steel and titanium parts for machining. I had not made one of these before - but, so far, it's turning out very well. A little overkill at 40mm thick (as can be expected from me) - but it's absolutely rock solid:

.

I will update you again soon.

Also, just to mention it again...

The are not many updates just now because production really has not started in earnest. However, once I start production, there will be plenty to show you!

To impossibly high standards,

Magnus

      Good to hear that progress is being made. Looking forward to video updates over the next couple of months as the knife becomes reality.
