Characteristics of relative and radiometric dating technologies
As expected, you can't make a serious business for decades and have a substantial internet presence without running into critics.The internet is rife with critics, people who have no training, no experience, and no measurable level of expertise apart from the ability to post (anonymously) their opinion.I go into much greater description and detail in my upcoming book. One may ask the jeweler why there are so many terms for his tradecraft, definitions for components and objects and specified nomenclature for areas and locations of a simple ring, bracelet, or necklace.Page Topics Aloha, Jay: I just want to thank you for writing an excellent treatise on knives. Add to the comparison that jewelry does not typically anything but be worn and present, whereas the knife is a tool and must perform cutting tasks, and it can be bewildering the number of terms and descriptions available in either the jeweler's or knife maker's world.Thanks for being here and sharing the voyage into monoglotistic indulgence! A blade and handle are the obvious terms that generalize the knife as a hand knife.A hand knife is one that is meant to be in the hand.You might be surprised how many knives are in the world; there are knives to plane wood, knives to shear steel, knives to separate particles in industrial process applications.In my upcoming book, I'll go into the bewildering classification of knives and blades, and our government's idea that they can classify, track, and identify them all!
I'll continue to expand this page, the definitions, descriptions, illustrations, photographs, and terminology as time permits, adding new styles and arrangements.
I've sprinkled in a few large pictures of some knives I've made with general details and descriptions so you can get a good idea of the modern handmade and custom knife and its description. Page Topics Modern knife makers speak their own language, and if you hang around them long enough, you'll pick up the terminology and soon be able to distinguish an uneven grind radius from a non-parallel spine flat.
It seems every knifemaker has his own terms for his knives, and if you make enough knives, you'll have to name those components somehow, just so you know what to call them!
So I've created a series of pictures and drawings to illustrate knife components, parts, and anatomy.
This will help with conversations and knowledge about knives in general, and educate about common current and historic knife components, leading to easier conversations about custom knives, their construction, shapes, features, and details.
