  2. My suggestion is use it. Use the knives you make for the purpose you intend. See how they cut, how they feel in your hand. Feel the fit of the handle to your grip. When I say use it, I mean use it a lot. For a few hours. See if it rubs in ways that you don't like. See how its edge holds up and how its geometry cuts.

  3. So to all you guys that have helped, thanks a ton. So I've been working on this little knife for a while. Longer than I care to admit and I'm finally ready to put some furniture on it but I wanted to show off the hamon. There are definitely some issues here but here is how I got this far. It's 1095 interrupted quench. 1 second in room temperature water then to peanut oil. Off the shelf refractory cement watered down to a thin milkshake texture. 800 grit then Ferric etch. Finished it off with Fast Orange hand cleaner then Mothers Metal polish. Actually it went pretty quick going that route.

  4. Cable damascus with perpendicular tang slotted into caribou antler with 3D printed cast bronze medallion. I filled in the gaps of the cable with clear epoxy I mixed gunmetal-blue mica powder into - I always hated how those little gaps were a magnet for all that bad stuff. I made a bunch of these medallions, going to start throwing them on knives I don't want to filework my "N" onto.

  5. My first thought at the first glimpse of your finished knife was that you must be a flintlock guy. Good stuff.

  11. Mr, Keown: As far as the amount of Horse Apples to add into the mix.. I have had great success mixing in between 15% to 20% by volume..that seems to work best for me....but this is very... VERY "flexible" as far as these things go...If you are mixing and it wants to "stick together" and not wanting to "co-operate" as far as what you are doing..... I would take that as an indication that your mix is more or less "correct"..As long as it is not too dry to "stick together" and be able to work with it... It is very difficult to explain in print..but I do hope this helps.... JPH
