This is an area for photos. They don't have to be knife related, just images that you created that you want to share. I have had great fun with my digital camera and find it is a way to open the creative vein. Keep the images no larger than 640x480 and around 50k.
This forum is to provide a place for members to offer their knives for sale. No dealer or commercial postings, but if you have a knife that you made and would like to offer it for sale please feel free to post.
Axe demo, how much time do I have? It normally takes about two hours, but I can cut down on the time by only doing one side and have ready-made pieces with both sides done for the time consuming steps.
I have a question for you. I just read through your adventure in casting your anvil. We are about to try and persuade the the directory of the foundry at our university that casting anvils (200ish pounds) would be a good idea. The foundry has an induction furnace with a 300lb capacity and we have about a thousand pounds of railroad track (legitimately acquired, lol) that we thought to suggest as the material. RR is usually 1085 steel. Do you think that this steel would be viable for melting down and casting into an anvil?
