Pretty happy with how this Shelach turned out. Open bid for TKI 2018. #southardknives #tki2018 #carbonfiber #zirconium #timascus #instamachinist #knifemaking #pocketjewelry #luxury

Integral Ollie for TKI. Zirconium pivot with titanium pins, NICHOLS Damascus with an Elmax Core. #southardknives #southardcustom #instamachinist #zirconium #titanium #nicholsdamascus #knives #tki2018


Integral Ollie for TKI, with an homage to Michael Burch photos. I forgot the paper towels taped to the workbench in the background. Next time. #tki2018 #southardknives #titanium #damascus

UPDATE On this broken blade!!! First off let me say. As soon as Damasteel saw this a rep from the company contacted me... which is awesome. It’s gonna be on its way to their engineers to get looked at. You guys speculated a lot on what went wrong. Which is great. But let me say this. I have worked with a lot of steel from at of different manufacturers. Damasteel make the cleanest, purest steel I have worked with. I’m not just saying the cleanest Damascus (although they win that category by a huge landslide). It’s clean... perfect steel over all. I’ve found flaws and inclusions in every brand and maker. I’ve never seen one in a damasteel product. From what I can see under magnification. There is NOT one here. I’m also meticulous about heat treating. It’s a science, and I treat it as such. I also check the Rockwell hardness at each step in heat treat. After hardening, after Cryo and, and after temper. It’s a check and balances system to confirm that everything went well. This blade was spot on at every step. What I think happened. I think it cracked after Cryo when I Rockwell tested, before I tempered it. It was at its hardest and most brittle stage right then. I suspect I tested to close the edge, which had some vertical 6O grit scratches, and it just separated a bit because I applied a heavy load of single point pressure on a very brittle (at that stage in heat treatment) surface. While I’ve never had it happen before... the engineers at Damasteel should be able to tell. Please understand what I’m saying. I DO NOT blame damasteel for this. I shouldn’t have posted that it was damasteel. But that cats outta the bag. I’m sorry @damasteelab I was simply frustrated breaking a super awesome blade a few days before a show. So let me again say. Damasteel is the fantastic material, and I intend to continue to work with it, it’s pretty much my exclusive Stainless Damascus product. Because no one else has come close to makeing such a perfect material with excellent knife properties.

Well this is a frustrating moment. Roughing in a blade for TKI outta damasteel. I look closely at it and notice a scratch that doesn’t follow the lines I’m grinding... well that shouldn’t be there... that’s a fracture... I tap it sideways on my workbench. Blade snaps in half... never seen that before on Damasteel. Not even sure what caused it. #southardknives #showprep #damasteel @damasteelab #tki2018

I got a 3d printer for Christmas, Which has been an absolute blast. After making a heap of silly toys for my son Oliver and a printing a few Parts to improve the 3d printer itself. I figure it’s about time to print something useful. organized my Er collets. Thanks to @johngrimsmoknives for his collet holder design that I resized to fit my er collets. #southardknives #3dprinting #grownuptoys

Think I can safely say ended on the something awesome category. Took 10 times longer to do that I had hoped or estimated. But totally worth it. Long as I don’t screw anything else up. Blade bout to be heat treated. #southardknives #tki2018 #knifemaking #instamachinist #tacticalknifeinvitational #titanium

I’m either about to destroy a whole lot of expensive tooling and giant block of titanium in a hurry or do something awesome. Mini Tolk is just for size reference. #southardknives #instamachinist #titanium #tki2018

Still chuckle everytime I use this clamp... err micrometer. One of my favorite silly things I’ve done with my laser engraver #instamachinist

Merry Christmas Eve! Thank you all so much for a great year and sticking by me through a few tough months (not that I talked about it much)
Looking forward to 2018.

A gaggle of Mink Tolks. Shipped out a few days ago, and traveling all over the world. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ To answer a few questions I’ve been getting asked quite a bit. How do I get a MiniTolk? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Because these are a new kind of performance series product for me, and they are quite literally made to order. They are taking some time to make and build in my shop. I would love to take hundreds of orders and just spent the next two years filling them. But that’s not fair to you to be waiting that long for a product. It’s also a nightmare of logistics from my end and not a terribly good way to run a business. (Least not the way I want to run it. Some business savvy folks will disagree) I want to be able to offer a product to you and actually have it received in a minimal and reasonable timeframe. So I’m only accepting a few orders at a time. An amount that I feel I can fill within the quoted timeframe. They are listed on my website, as well as linked in my profile here on Instagram. So if you see it in stock. That means it’s currently available for order. However that may close after a short while. But wait a week or two and it will reopen for a few slots.

Etching damasteel in acid. The two metals that make up damasteel react to the acid differently. One remains shiny, and resists the acid better, while the other is etched more quickly and and turns a dark gray/black color. Which gives damasteel its distinctive look. #southard #southardknives #damasteel #timascus #minitolk #southardminitolk #pocketjewlery #instamachinist #bogoak

As I’ve been making and shipping Mini Tolks I’ve been photographing the different configurations you folks have come up with. I hadn’t gotten around to looking at them yet. Some of them turned out pretty solid. #southard #southardknives #damasteel #timascus #minitolk #southardminitolk #pocketjewlery #instamachinist #bogoak

Lots of Mini Tolk parts going on today. Finishing up nearly completely timascus and damasteel Minis. S110v blades getting their final tumble, laser engraving damasteel blades. Milling the insides of some new mini tolks. It’s crazy around here today. Well this mini Tolk turned out lovely. #southard #southardknives #southardknivesminitolk #southardperformance #knives #knifemaking #instamachinist #titanium #timascus #lasers #damasteel

Well this mini Tolk turned out lovely. Fun seeing some of the combos you guys picked all done. #southard #southardknives #southardknivesminitolk #southardperformance #knives #knifemaking #instamachinist #titanium #timascus #bogoak

The last few months of knifemaking have been full of frustration. Parts not turning out like I want, machines and equipment breaking, things Ive done 100x before not working the same. As well as a fair bit of sickness for my faimly.
Its almost been like Ive been learning knife making all over again bringing these Mini Tolks to market. The initial batch I offered to some folks is very nearly complete, although months behind what I was shooting for.
Bringing a small scale production, made fully in house, has proved to be difficult, and so worth it! I couldnt be happier with how they are turning out. The things you work the hardest for are often the most worth it. These are just a few of the Mini Tolk that have shipped in the last few days. I have 9 left to ship before they are all out the door and I can start really producing them, and taking orders. Super excited. #southard #southardknives #southardknivesminitolk #southardperformance #knives #knifemaking #instamachinist #titanium

26 yr old haas machine still running strong. Making some mini Tolk boxes. Meanwhile I’m busy on my other Haas making micarta inlays for the current batch of mini Tolk orders. #southardknives #southard #instamachinist #haas @haas_automation #minitolk #knifemaking #yesievenmakethecases

I have been working hard on Mini Tolks lately. With little work getting done on Customs. But finished up this Hanan custom today. M390 steel, with zirconium, titanium and a bit of g10. #southardknives #knifemaking #titanium #zirconium #knives #customknives #pocketjewlery #manjewelry #greatforamazonboxes

Mini Tolk I shipped recently. Just one of the variations that you will be able to chose from when ordering opens. #southardknives #southardminitolk #titanium #knives #carbonfiber #knifemaking #pocketjewelry #manjewelry #greatforamazonboxes

Mini Tolk assembly time. This one has timascus backspacer and pivot ring with carbon fiber inlays and a 20cv with satin flats. #southardknives #southardminitolk #knifemaking #knifemaker #instamachinst
