    Mokume can be hard or simple depending on your experience and available equipment.It can be fused or sweat soldered with hard silver solder .You need contrasting metals and with your copper German/nickle silver would work.There are many instructions/videos on the net to get the process idea.

    Any of y'all know anything about mushrooms?

    If you wait too long,it will be full of "worms",you might like the extra protein though.
  8. Do you countersink the pin hole before you pein the ends? I use a ball or setting burr to make a small cup for the metal to expand and most blend well after sanding.

    Restoration help

    Guess a little research is needed since many Scandinavian knives have had a ricasso,many were the horse head pommel type. Link with examples....... https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/knife_forum/viewtopic.php?t=27422
  11. A regular hacksaw to rough cut and files to shape.a number 6 will work ,but the number of broken blades and time involved is not worth it. Recommended blade size link https://www.firemountaingems.com/resources/encyclobeadia/charts/771x

    There has been an impact engraver which uses a flex shaft for power since 1979 http://www.ngraver.com/

    Push engravers and hammer and chisel for under $200 to start with and see if you like the technique.No point in spending 2 thousand for something you might not enjoy.
  14. Have you checked http://www.engraverscafe.com/forumdisplay.php?1-Hand-Engraving-Forum Like Lindsey's forum it is full of info and advice and the members use all types that are good.
