Knives seem to be a passion now
« on: 12 Jan 2016 - 20:44:09 »
Last time I was here I posted some stuff I was working on, well I finished some broke one and rebuilt my forge.I'll just show you.

That bowie I was working on devlopement a crack that I determined was a result of uneven heating on the heat treat so I built another forge, a pass through this time


It works much better than the precious so I got busy on another bowie thus time with some success.


This next one I don't have a finished pic of but the handle turned out really well fiddle back maple


Here's two of the skinners, brazillian cherry and linen micarta


I haven't finished this one but I managed to pull a pretty good hamon out of it


Made this for the grandmother in law, she had been wanting a cleaver for chopping barbecue for a while, she liked it


Give this to a good buddy of mine at work, handle is paper micarta white cardstock with black for a liner

 And this a camp knife I'm traded to a guy for more spring steel, burlap micarta camo



Yeah I got it real bad now, between work and this the wife hardly sees me, which may or may not be a bad thing for her.

BTW, I'm Christian, but I do not claim denomination, nor will I defend my beliefs. I believe what I believe, and I don't care what you belive, I only care about how you live and if you're a person I'd be willing to take a bullet for. Beyond that, I really don't give a ****.       Primalseal

How do you get that wave pattern in the tang?  Beat it against a mold?  CNC machining or magic?

And the black stuff under the wood grips, epoxy or?

If you need a second magazine its time to call in air support.

I came into this world kicking, screaming, covered in someone else's blood. I certainly don't mind leaving the same way

Its suppose to be a vine and thorn pattern, I wish I had a better pic of it, but a chain saw file and triangle file it's not really hard just takes a little time

I add powdered graphite to the epoxy  and really slather it on so it squishes out and fills the holes.
