  3. Pretty slick! It would work even better with the soft insulating bricks. I might have to try that...

  4. This is one of the absolute top reasons why I love this hobby. You can do so much with so little, and wind up with high quality, repeatable results. It justs depends on your resoursefulness, drive and desire. But theres always the giant think tank here to share with and learn!

  5. I tinned both surfaces first so that I didn't have to apply any solder while heating. I then laid the piece of brass on top of the blade which was half submerged in water and held secure with a c-clamp. I heated one end of the brass with a plumber's torch in one hand while pressing down on the brass with a small scrap piece of steel in the other hand and repeated this as I worked my way down the blade.

  7. This started out as a gift for my son but he wanted something more LOTR inspired which is cool. It is 304/1084 San mai with wrought iron fittings and a maple handle that I stiched a leather wrap around it and with an ode to Peter Johnsson I wrapped string around it wet to give it that look that is both functional and pretty damn cool looking. Overall is about 12-14" and the blade is some where around 8-9 " I promised the lady who wanted it for her husband a sheath so I made this little guy cheap and easy.
