  1. I find that Walmart has a gun stock oil finish, It is called Trueoil .It drys fast and makes a realy nice finish. I hope this will help.
  2. How long is the blade? How thick of 1095 are you going to use? Convex or flat grind?. The over all drawing looks great.
  3. Have you ever tried water hardening the leather? It will make in very hard once you mold it to shape it will stay that shape. I find it works better then beeswax treatment. I hope this will help. Rich

  7. I have worked with Purple Heart for over 10 years with great results. I make canes, sheaths and handels out of Purple Heart. I have never had a rash but I have had resprotory problems when I did not wear a mask. If you want a deep Purple let it set out for a few days before you seal it. True oil works realy good or toung oil works too I hope this will help.

  9. I recently bought a well made lock back knife that measures 4 inches closed. It has brass bolsters, liner and a micarta handel with a stainless steel blade? The only markings on the blade is OK . I have looked in every book I know about it . I can find nothing. Does any one know any thing about this knife or who made it. Thank you in advance.

  11. I have not had any luck blueing stainless steel. Gun blueing won't work on stainless steel. But I have used etching liquid to grey out the blade. I have done ats 43 and 440 c with good results. I would use a scrap pice of steel first (to expirment on) . I hope this helps you mate.
