  3. Hi all. Rather than starting a new thread everytime, I'm just going to add to this one. Here's what I managed to get out the door this week. Matching set of kitchen work horses, french style 9" chefs and a 6" utility, 1070 clay quenched with muwanga handles. The next one is a 9" carving knife. 1070 with mopane handle. As always, thoughts and critique welcome

  5. Yeah, it's a bugger under the hammer. Old springs seem to be worse than new stock in my experience, but I avoid using it altogether.

  9. If you can temporarily glue a dowel or screw of some sort into the hole in the pommel that sits/screws onto the tang, you can then chuck it up in your drill press and bring it to shape while it's spinning. Same idea as a lathe, just harder to use and much less convenient.

  10. This sounds a lot like an author who has done a little research but not enough to fully understand what he is writing about. It's articles like this that confuse people.

  12. Very nice, I don't think I could pull off those scrolls, but I'll have to try something similar when I refill my propane. Some garage door springs are hollow with nylon or some kind of cord running through them so they don't fly apart when they break, I don't know how common that is but I saw a few like that when researching springs. Did you do much planning before you started working on it? It looks very neatly done.

  14. +1 on the sheath! If you dont mind my asking, how are those larger medallion like rivets set? That's something I have yet to figure out.

  16. Survival is priority #1. I believe in concieled carry. Nobody really messes with a 230lb guy such as myself, but those on a smaller frame and with higher likelihood of an assault I think absolutely should be prepared for the worst. Two of my sisters carry and I dont worry about them as much. I suggest lots of instructed training and a permit before carrying anything. This knife is way too big for that though. I carry a midsize (not a knife) and Its really too big to comfortably carry all day, and that's in my baggy men's garb. That hook looks like a real snagger of clothes and it
