  1. Good to know. Since I'm making a couple of struck tools with wood handles, would H13 be good for that, or would S7 be better? I'm leaning towards H13 due to simplicity of heat treat. At least once it cools down some, I nearly melted at the forge last night.
  2. Got a couple of hammer eye punches I need to make and was considering Atlantic 33. I have made a lot of tooling from sucker rod, 4140, 5160, even some 52100, and was thinking of ordering some H13 until I ran across a video of Brent Bailey talking about it. This will be for a Brian Brazil style handled eye punch if that helps. Anyone with experience with Atlantic 33? Thanks
  3. I get some time this weekend I may try something like that. Got a free sample of 1085 from Pop's supply at a recent hammer in. It's about 2"x3/4" or 2"x5/8" round if I remember rite. I know it's not quite in the 1" criteria, but it should be interesting since I normally work a lot larger stock. My experience with 52100 is to thermal cycle it before, durning, and after forging. Knock on wood, I've only had a couple to develop cracks over the years even with lower temp forging cycles. It really responds well to multiple normalizing cycles.

  9. Very cool looking bowie, love the shape and pattern.
  10. Amazing work, enjoyed following it's progress.
  11. Good looking knife. Only design element I don't care for is the notch at the ricasso, they have a habit of hanging up and catching instead of sliding into the cutting edge. But that's my personal preference, not everybody agrees. Other than that, I love the simple, clean lines.
  12. Both are forged from 5160, leather underlayment and acraglass epoxy impregnated. All black one has a 3 1/2" cutting edge and kydex sheath with leather drop loop, orange and black has a 4 1/4" cutting edge and heavy vinagroon dyed leather sheath. Black one has an acid etched satin finish, the orange one has a buffed satin finish. Email for more pics or info. 175$ each, shipping and zippered pouch included in the continental US.
  13. They are overpriced for what they are. If I could find or make good square cut threads for the screw and nut, I'd build a good one. When my old vise screw broke I looked at these and called and asked about them. I learned that they have have a few of them break the screws under heavy use, so I got some acme thread and nuts and fixed it. Not ideal, but it works OK. This is the only one I've found I'd be interested in, http://www.blacksmithsdepot.com/leg-vise-170.html but I can't find anybody that has one to give it a review and I'm too broke to blindly spend 800$ on something that may or may not be worth it. No real info on the main screw either. If it's a good one, and I wouldn't have to worry about it coming apart, I'd be interested in it, but until someone braver than me spends the money and beats the heck out of it and gives it a good review I'll pass. Just noticed the date, Jan 2016, not Jan 2017. Sorry for resurrecting an old thread.
