Product Testing

I recently built a knife for myself using the 1080 carbon steel from Admiral Steel so that I can do some testing. I want to use this knife a lot to find out what I am dealing with and make sure I am doing things right. I carved this log out with a chainsaw to make a bowl and needed to remove the bark. I was about to use my draw knife (pictured), but figured I might as well give my new knife some action. I did a lot of peeling and slicing and the knife worked like a champ. It took a while, but it still sliced paper when done and I see no dull spots that need to be sharpened. This is a good sign, I am very happy and am looking forward to the next test.
