    The Making of "Bowie No. 1" (WIP)

    Very Nice! Thanks for sharing. Seems like I remember seeing the blueprints for Bowie No.1 at Riverside Machine for sale several years ago. Does anyone know if the blueprints are still available ?

    Clay coating and quenching

    Why doesn't a knife with the spine clay coated bend up while hardening, like a sword does? Thanks, Chris

    Thanks again Mr. Obach for the time and information. To answer your question on the hurdle. I guess the biggest hurdle for me is the thousands of questions that wait at every step of a new adventure, ie . equipment design and size, materials to use and not to use, temps, times, weights of raw materials. The tutorial and the paper that you wrote has gone a long way to answering most of the questions. I'm trying to decide on a furnace now, looking at Mr. Gingery's. Thanks again, Chris P.S. If you ever decide to write a book on wootz, in the spirt of the complete bladesmith, I'd like to buy the first copy.

    I noticed the crap steel in both posts but wasn't sure. Thank you Mr. Obach for sharing your knowledge. After reading your tutorial, its starting to make a little more sense. Do you have any more tutorials posted elsewhere? Also, You mentioned in the tutorial you were writing a paper on your furnace, I was wondering if it was posted anywhere? Thanks again, :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: Chris
