  3. This was my first commission for a friend. W2, and walnut crotch with denim liners. I did a little bit of experimenting with grey scotch brite, Super awesome results. Gives it a nice milky high grit satin look. I think this one turned out really well. What do ya think? If you have any critique please do tell. Thanks for looking

  4. I'm running out of time on this one, but managed to get over another hurdle yesterday. My first ever bronze pour! Admittedly, this part could have been pretty easily filed from a piece of bar stock, but the whole reason I do KITH is to learn how to do new things.

  5. I have been making a few knives lately as I gear up to do more production. These knives have been my test runs as I focus on streamlining certain aspects of my work flow and wanted to share them here. The first is a 30 layer pattern welded rhombic puukko which will be going to it's new owner shortly. The second is a small neck/belt knife I kept for myself 1084 steel forged from a scrap left from another knife, trigger shoe style forged guard osage orange handle and an ambidextrous multi position sheath. Third is a kitchen knife I forged for my wife. And fourth is a hunter in 1084 wal

  7. Discovered an interesting clay mix for forge body by half accident today. Seems adding around 1% powered softwood charcoal gives it an interesting insulation boost. Quite high might i add. Ive had it running for approximately 3 hours now and the outside is still wet and lukewarm at best. The inside is yellow. Im taking a shot in the dark and assume the charcoal burned out leaving a porous clay shell. Originally added charcoal powder as a way to assist in drying without cracking when fireing instead of waiting days for the clay to do so on its own. Overall thickness is 3 1/2in all the way aroun

  10. The more I see spear heads the more I want to finish one! I got two pattern welded projects laying around and one has been begging me to be a spear head with some inlay on the socket!

  12. For those of you who are wondering which knife it was that got a new guard, it was this one. Now it has the guard it always wanted.

  13. How sharp is the false edge, especially towards the tip? Larry Harley made hog-hunting knives (look up Larry Harley Battle Bowie) and made sure to have the first half of the false edge fully sharp. He liked to describe the proper way to use it on a hog as "let the dogs grab it by the ears and hind legs, then you jump on top and stick the blade all the way in just behind the shoulder blade lined up with the ribs, then you work it up and down like a water pump handle until the hog drops. Do it fast enough and it takes about a second." He never added "do it wrong and you might end up as hog f
