First knifemaking fixture!

Was up late at the shop last night working on this! It's a test fixture for holding the Resolute blades so they can have their outside profile cut.

First they get put in a vise where all the holes are drilled, and the handle is weight relieved, then they get mounted on this fixture and the outside profile is cut!

The knife blank is located on the fixture using two dowel pins (one round, one diamond) and then a special clamp bolts through holding it in place!

I'm feeling pretty wiped this morning, I need to start going to bed earlier than 3am, the machine is just so damn fun!
