I’ve been really digging this color and finish lately. So I had to make a few more. Couple are on my site now. What other combos should I try? —- #southard #southardknives #southardminitolk #titanium #instamachinist

Balls... so many balls. #southardknives #knifemaking

Couple mini tolk blades I just finished engraving before they get tumbled. Lots of steps go into every single blade to get them to this point. From just cutting them outta of the raw stock, surface grinding, heat treatment, machining, grinding and then hand polishing. It’s a lot of work, but totally worth it. #southardknives #southard #knifemaking #steel #handmade #southardminitolk

Join me in my tiny tiny victory. Of taking apart a perfectly good 5th axis and demoting it to a 4th. A 4th better suits my needs, and will still allow me to use my mill with a Pierson Pallet system as well as a Pierson rotovise on the 4th. Pretty excited to do this soon. ———
First I wanted to make sure the 4th worked, and honestly... my Haas tech didn’t know if the drive would still work when not joined with the other axis I unbolted it from.
@pierson_workholding Thanks for your help yesterday Jay.

Doing some design work while I make Mini Tolk pocket clips. I’m a fan of one piece flow lately. Where I make everything for just one knife or product and no more. However pocket clips really are easier to batch and inventory till I make the rest of the knife. #southardknives #knifemaking #instamachinist #titanium

Handful of Mini Tolks up on the site! Link in my profile. Thank you to those of you that were stalking my site enough to snag some literally seconds after I pushed upload. You guys are awesome. Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving! #southard #southardknives #southardminitolk #titanium #steel #copper #instamachinist #zirconium #smallbusinesssaturday

Just a couple of the mini Tolks going up on the website tomorrow. #southard #southardknives #southardminitolk #titanium #steel #copper #instamachinist

Couple Mini Tolks I just uploaded on the website that I clearly should have cleaned a little better before I snapped this photo. #southard #southardknives #southardminitolk #titanium #steel #copper #instamachinist

Heat coloring timascus. I love this part. #southardknives #southard #minitolk #southardminitolk #timascus

Finished this integral Ollie. Tried a double deep etch on the blade. Blade has a great texture feel. Got some timascus bits on it as well... cause it’s awesome.

For the last time today, I brushed Ranger's dog hair from my black shirt. Never really cared about his hair on my shirt, but I know I'm gonna miss it anyways. I'll miss the many late hours hanging out on the couch with him while I tried to calm my mind and fall asleep from insomnia. I
'll miss the way he so gently and gingerly took treats or snacks, you would only feel the tickles of his whiskers on your hand.
Wish I had just one more day to sneak you food when Katie wasn’t looking.
Ranger passed away this morning from complications of Addisons disease. #rangergram

When I made the Persian Integral for @tzvy before I started cutting into the amazing Timascus billet that became the integral frame for his knife. I knew I needed to test the design and milling beforehand. I made two Titanium frames and this is the only one that survived. Then I was able to make The one for Tzvy. I just got around to completeing that Persian Eims integral flipper. #southard #southardknives #southardcustom #timascus
