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.
How do people figure out how long to quench their sword blades so that it just crosses the martensite start point (to straighten blades right after quench)? I have heard that people do it about 7 seconds or so, but I'm planning on quenching something on the thinner side. I know I might break the blade in the process if I get it wrong, but I'm willing to sacrifice a blade or two in order to learn.
So there I am at the Hidden in the Hills art show today when I see this guy standing in the middle of it all. He's a big burly kind of guy with a camo Tee shirt and full sleeve tattoos, short hair and a thin grey beard. I look at him and say "You look like the kind of guy that needs a good knife". He says "Yeah I am, do you have any?" So I show him into my tent and he starts looking at my work. Turns out he is Louis Krudo of Krudo Knives.
