  1. Hello all! This is my first "for sale" post here. Usually, I do a lot of blades by request. But on occassion I'll do some experimenting and post them for sale elsewhere. This is one of those blades and depending on who you are, you could call this one a bowie or a fighter knife. Here is a little about me. My name is Greg Baughman and I'm an ABS apprentice smith. I have been making and selling knives of various types for around 4 years. Forging knives is just a hobby for me but of course, like many of us here, soemday I would like to do it full time. This blade is made of 1084 forged s
  2. Yea, I've seen that to but never had a chance to use any of it. Thanks all for your comments!
  3. It's been a while since I've posted anything but, here is my most recently completed bowie. I'll be selling it soon, I just need to decide where to do it. Usually I sell on ebay. I probably need to take some better pictures Any way, enjoy! -Greg Blade: 1080 steel, hardened in clay Blade Length: 9 1/4" Width: 1 1/2" Thickness: 3/16" Guard: nickel silver Handle: stabilized maple, white/black spacers and African ebony wood pinned with nickel silver pin Handle length: 5"

  5. Hey Serge, next time you are ready to heat treat something, lets set up a time and you can come over to my house and we will do it with my forge. -Greg
  6. Nice stuff Serge. We will have to work together at the forge in Folsom soon.
  7. Here is a recently completed bowie I did for a buyer on the east coast. The blade is 13" long with hig/low carbon and nickel 201. The handle is giraffe bone framed with nickel silver with buffalo hoern and copper/nickel silver spacers. Over all length is 18.5". I should have the sheath done in the next couple of days. Enjoy!
  8. Yup, I saw the hole there but, I did not incorporate it into my blade.
  9. How wide of a washer are you trying to use?
  10. Thanks for your comments guys. Tony, this did start out as parts from a Darrel Ralph kit which I'm forced to use since I can't mill out precision parts myself. The buyer wanted a push button lock and a "tanto" style tip. For the file work I added a piece of nickel silver, added some shims and reshapedthe handle a little. I know what you mean when you try to tighten things, nothing seems to open right or smoothly. The problem is solved by using plastic or bronze washers. I used soem washers I had laying around (teflon I think) and it opens with no problems. -Greg
  11. I don't usually make folders but I just finished this one for a guy who insisted it be a folder. It has a push button lock, the handle is stabilized amboynia and the blade is twisted 1095, 1080 and nickel 200. enjoy! Greg B
  12. Texasknifesupply.com and Admialsteel.com has what you're looking for. I believe the steel at Admiral is cheaper. That's where I get the majority of my stuff.
