  1. It's been quite some time since I have posted anything new. I made this one in collaboration with a friend, Luke Dellmyer, we went with an east meets west theme. This was a true collaboration with us working side by side working on each part together. The blade is just under 11 inches long and 2.2.5 inches wide, the hibaki is silver/copper mokume, the guard is blued mild steel with bronze dots inlayed on each side, the spacer is a piece of mosaic damascus, ivory g10 for the handle, and a domed bronze pin. Well thanks for looking and any questions are always welcome.

  2. If you have the tubing to make the larger pipe holder, use a piece a couple inches longer than necessary. Cut slits an inch or two up one end and bend the resulting tabs out 90 degrees and flatten. This is easier hot, if you have a torch. Drill holes, bolt to the forge body at the angle you want. I like a true tangent rather than just a tilted entry. This requires cutting the end of the tube you're going to make tabs from at an angle. Practice on a paper towel tube or something first.

  4. There's a lot going on there, for what appears at first glance to be a "simple" knife. I like it.

  5. I welded mine of course- But one of the thoughts I had to make it more removable, was to make my collar for the burner... and use four or five 90 degree angle brackets to screw to the body of the forge, and into the collar. Alan is describing kind of the same thing, but just making the brackets integral to the collar. Good thinking. Depending on how you did it, you could use longer bolts with extra nuts on them to maintain positioning Of the burner. In the end, I just bit the bullet and bought more welding wire.

  6. The 1/4 turn ball valve is much faster and safer. Not to mention cheaper.

  9. Thank you Gentlemen! .... aaaaa ... sculpture was inspired by a find from the Carpathian Arch from the Draguseni in Romania, dating back to the eneolytic culture of Cucuteni - Trypole, around 4000 BC. My sculpture is 1.50 m high and comes from the Carpathian beech forest.

  10. I like it, looks handy! Personally prefer a small guard or finger groove as I can see slipping up on the edge, but appreciate the style. Clint
