    Forged this one up from an oversized horse rasp our farrier uses on the heavy horses. by no means fancy but will serve its purpose. With a long handle it will stay in my boat.....just in case!!

    Thanks fellas, I cut a good long solid shaft. I am 6’ 4” and the tip of the spear is the height of the top of my fingers when held straight up. Feels like a formidable weapon. Anyhow some more fun at the forge today playing with sockets. Harpoon head and boning knife. Boning knife heat treated but I have yet to do final grind and clean up.

    Anyhow after finishing the rest of the bottle and halfway through the second one, this is the result. It all started from wanting a 10c rivet. I blame you all for fostering this obsession.

    I got my first real look at the pattern tonight. I decided to remove the ricasso from this one. I think it looks better without it. I'm still debating one what style of guard to give it. I have enough of the blade steel left to do either a guard or a butt cap. What do you think? Use it or make them from 416?

    Well, I really don't know LG2 from a hot rock, but Rio Grande sells bronze wire: https://www.riogrande.com/product/bronze-round-wire-dead-soft/134314gp They also sell ingot molds for making your own: https://www.riogrande.com/product/cast-iron-reversible-ingot-mold/704077 So if the wire stock isn't the same as your bar, you could spend a few bucks and get a crucible, a holder, and an OA torch and cast some.

    Those are really neat blades you've got there. I've never seen a socket wrap on a knife before. Is that a historical style?

    Good stuff thank you for sharing some of the process I've never seen that on a knife handle.

    And he got it from Tai Goo, who in turn got it from some tribe in the Phillipines, who got it from somewhere in Indonesia/Maylaysia and so on... . A good idea is always good.

    I like this too. I am working on a socket harpoon head/ knife as we speak. Surprising how comfortable in the hand a socket handle is. James Helm worked this one out ages ago haha

    Good looking knives. I like the second one, the 1/2 socket with wood handle is nice. Wish I'd thought of that. Probably gonna steal the idea and try it myself. Keep on rockin. *obligatory mutterings on the state of the world here* > /dev/null ⏎ no offense intended to anyone.

    I'll let the others comment on how stable the wood will be. However I just pm'd you about stabilizing. Hit me up if you want.

    I was thinking that same thing Alan said. Probably a handy thing to have around on your photography sessions.

    I like it! And given the things that live in the water near you, not a bad idea. . You could probably sell them, in fact!
