    Got my hammer

    I was going to buy one of the quick and dirty tools power hammers but a smith who recently passed away had just built one in a workshop or build along that quick and dirty runs, and his widow sold it to me. I'm very grateful as I have wanted a hammer or a press for about 5 years now. I didn't even know anybody made tire hammers to sell until about a month ago. It took all day to go up and get it and come back. I just finished getting it into my shop, it weighs about 900 lbs and a friend drove his forklift from about 5 miles away to my house and took it out of my dads truck and into my shop for me. Of course the shop I picked it up at is full of stuff and I had to buy a swage block that was sitting there. I have wanted one of those for years now ever since seeing Herschel House use one. I don't think the guy used the hammer, it had tested written on it in chalk. Here's a picture of the swage block it has to weigh close to 180-200 lbs Anyway thanks for looking and if you're in the northwest and you're looking for a hammer quick and dirty tools makes them.

    Big Knife

    Love the fit on that one, the last two pictures that show the slight rounding on the mokume, looks very hard to do. Very nice.

    Medieval Knife

    I like it, I like how you did the handle. Nice sheath never thought of hemp either. I'm always curious about books which book did you get the idea from?

    Damascus 5" Kitchen Utility

    I like the way you say dishwasher tolerant, a relative couldn't understand my being upset when I found my ironwood handled kitchen knife in the dishwasher. It looks like it would be great at trimming meat.

    Wes, I like it, the first thing I noticed was the copper rivets on your sheath, they go good with the fittings, what can I say I like copper. Nice shape and size too, and a good looking piece of antler.
