  1. Buen trabajo. Great job!
  2. Hola tocayo! Bienvenido a este foro.
  3. Great vid. Enjoyed it!
  4. If this is what you've been up to lately, don't hold back! Keep them coming.
  5. You to make it clear. The saya file is actually a rasp shaped like the distal 6 inches of a katana blade on a long and skinny handle.
  6. Emiliano's points are excellent. When this has happened to me it wasn't because of something accidentally getting in rather because the wood has embedded in it tiny stones from when it grew as a tree. The saya file has been my best investment but trying to fit the saya to avoid contact on the sides to begin with is best.
  7. "Simply" beautiful and elegant. The lighting of the photos is excellent to turn the work alive.
  8. I just saw this, Jim. The new format of the forum has me confused in trying to see posts. This is shaping to be beautiful in the end. Looking forward to seeing more.
  9. Listen to Sam. He succinctly pointed out what you need to do.
  10. I have decided to post the entire making of the Blue Ridge Seax on YouTube. It is free for everyone to watch it. Here is the link: The Blue Ridge Seax
  11. I just noticed this thread now. Beautiful images. You have a great eye for light/form/color.
  12. Are there any historical iron mines in the area where you collected the ore? If so old records may show analysis results.
  13. You may want to find out more about the quality of your ore first. The final output of the furnace depends on how much iron goes in.
  14. I think the pH in my stomach just went down a notch.
  15. Hope it heals fast.
