  2. Good evening folks! Yet another 8" ktip in 26c3. Tempered a little harder this time at 64hrc. Weighting in at 8oz with point of balance straight at heel. I liked the look of the blued steel/copper/dark wood I used on the oyster knoife so I used that combo again on this one . I played maybe a bit too much with facets, but it ended up quite comfortable despite the sharp looking edges.

  3. I typically bronze braze my tang extensions or threaded rods for take-down handles. It's never under much stress to start with and bronze brazing is vey strong. If you brazed an 1/8" rod on there that would make a peened rivet about twice the diameter on the pomell cap.

  4. Pattern welded Bowie approx 450 layer. Stabilized Myrtle handle with coin bronze fittings. The coins (old NZ 1 and 2 cents pieces were cast into an ingot then made into the fittings) Total length 31 cm, Blade 18 cm And a pic of all the bits Since all the fittings were made of 1 and 2 cents coins I made the keeper of the scabbard out of a 2 cents coin.

  8. I had one like that too (minus the inkwell, those were down in the basement of my ca. 1936 schoolhouse), but that's just because the Knox County, TN school system didn't modernize anything until well into the 1980s. We could sit in desks that bore our parents' carved initials from the 1950s. The janitor never stripped the floors, he just added a fresh coat of wax every month, so there was about 1/4" of wax buildup over the folded cardboard shims that kept the bookcase in the 5th grade classroom level since around 1940...

  13. "I need to get busy on some knives". But how can you pass up a job for one of your grand-kids? They always move to the top of the list. My daughter bought an old county school desk off of Craigslist for $5.00 She asked if I thought I could fix it up a little. I couldn't back down from such a challenge. I had a 5' section of oak I had cut out of an old church pew to shorten it up, so I got all my new wood from it. Got to try my hand at some steam bending for the seat and back slats: After some trial and error it actually worked. Here's what I came up with: Another satisfied customer.
