    first knife off My sale table at the Brea blade show

    it dose look long but the handle is shorter than it looks , when you hold it your finger is in a perfect spot , its just a weird piece

    The war knife of Dáin Ironfoot

    just beautiful
  5. well the Brea knife show has come and gone........................... wasnt a great show from a monatary point of view but good to say the least. We all have that box of "stuff" we dont want to toss but dont want to keep, I call Mine the "WHAT THE F##KIN' HELL WAS I THINKIN'" box! a few weeks befor the show I got antler in and saw this base and got a flash a "I know what this will work on" so I built it up tossed in on the table and it got pounced on very early in the day , the buyer left thrilled , I was just amazed. its a kind of intergregal nessmuck sorta thing made from forged O1 ,fiber spacers and a whitetail spike edge quenched in ATF , oddly showing a "temper line" I havent been here in a while , work and joint health and orders have robbed Me of pleasure time as always feel free to state your feelings

    the last piece for Me show

    Ill be having a table at the Southern California Knifemakes show , the 24th of june in Brea ,Cal. I wanted to do one "standout piece" for my table do I opted to do a damascus Bodkin , in the pattern I started maked , blade is 4 metal random damascus, bronze guard throat and cap handle is sanbar stag I got lucky enuff to get to Bill Herndon shop for heat treat and etch, yea I figured 2 to 3 hours ,................... I ended up spending most of the day , I can only hope I didnt keep Bill from anything done, on the final finish I had to regrind and repolish the blade as it just showed way to much scratch marks, got it home , to asemble. got on the grinder and the grinder motor died, then I scorched the horn with rouge fob on a dremil tool end the end it looks ok.............................Ill just not forget or forgive this beast for the fight <LOL
