  1. Here are some additional pictures. Just shot with a phone camera on a spring break trip to the river. I went back and looked for more in process pictures and didn’t find much. I really struggled with the leather, with the taper of the handle it didn’t want to let go of the knife after it was stitched. I ended up with a relief cut in the back (which I can’t find a picture of) Anyway, in the end I finally finished it after 3 crazy years.
  2. I was hoping I’d catch you by surprise Sounded like a good way to make the day a little better. Thanks for the compliments, I’m glad it is to your liking. I’ll post some pictures as well. I didn’t do very well with the WIP part, the leather part of the sheath took some persistence, the end result was the 4th? try and I finally liked it still a little stiff but I think it will break in over time.
  3. I did something similar to this quite a while ago. Except the handle wood connected over the back of the handle. Don’t have a great picture showing bottom of the handle, but the tang is fully exposed along the bottom side of the handle. I thought it turned out ok and allowed me to do some carving on the spine of the handle…
  4. Thanks! I feel like I’m always at work these days so the few times I get to hang out with the the kids and do something with my hands is a good thing. Here’s the whole family (I only carved the one I showed earlier, my wife carved the scarecrow and the kids all carved their own - my oldest son carved two):
  5. Here is my contribution. I have found if I just start cutting without a plan it turns out better
  6. I love stuff like this, Absolutely incredible. I just wish there was more time in the day so I could learn more techniques, and just maybe come even close to something like this.
  7. Well, at this stage in the game I can make it as big as I want... sounds like 4x5, or even 4x6 just cuz I can
  8. Nice, I think I'll just pour it with some dividers to isolate a small (is a 4x4' pad enough?) I doubt I'll have anything very large depending on what I find in the future. Regarding bolting it down - I assume there is no standard bolt pattern I can put in place, so that will have to come secondary when I obtain the hammer.
  9. Hello all, There is the possibility that I am going to be pouring the concrete for a new shop floor sometime this summer. Someday, in the distant future I would love to obtain a power hammer of some type… Any thoughts on pouring a block of concrete sufficient for a power hammer now even though I do not know the make and model of my future tool?
  10. I replied to the last time you posted this as well, but this really looks like a the cardboard sharpening system. Like Alan said it is for quick sharpening/honing but you have to start with a fairly sharp edge. Just search "cardboard sharpening system" and you can find many for sale and the instructions on how to use them.
  11. My guess would be one of those cardboard sharpening systems. Quick google search later: https://www.sharpeningsupplies.com/Paper-Sharpening-Wheel-Kit-for-6-Grinders--P1145.aspx
  12. I like them all! the antler engraving looks great! Fun huh?
  13. Our cat had a little standoff with a fox this weekend.... And yeah, we still have about 2-3 feet of snow on the ground...
  14. Seems to be current trend in our photography section to get first (and only) time posts, not sure what this means... I have been visiting two websites on a daily basis for the better part of 15 years (roughly): This one (bladesmithsforum) and https://apod.nasa.gov/ which is a single daily picture/video related to space with short and typically concise description. I am not into amateur astronomy, I don't even own a telescope, but these pictures fascinate me and to be honest puts my life into perspective. I live in a fairly dark part of the country, and have grown up seeing the mil
