  1. John, do you use files at all on getting the grind lines just right? I think I would have to. I am impressed. Great job. kc
  2. Jake - I have always been inspired by your work. For years. This demonstrates that you are moving up in a serious way. Thanks for showing this to us!
  3. That rocks! Everything about it is just right. Seriously, great by both of you.
  4. that is a thing of beauty. I haven't seen anything that cool in some time. Awesome job!
  5. I like the long one with the fuller the best, also. However, they are all quite cool!
  6. thanks everyone! Alan - yes, I am always working. I spend about 20 hours per week making stuff. It just takes a long time to do each one now. But, it is a blast. I am good with brazing now, and love the fact that so much brass was used in the traditional stuff. It is such a great metal to work with. Sure, there are iron/steel fittings, too. But, I already got to work with steel a lot! take care, kc
  7. Hello Everyone, I am working with Scott Rodell. He designs them, I make them. I can only make two or three per year. Here is the latest. I hope you like it!
  8. yes, good knife. I have a belief that the trend towards thin handles has gone a little too far (narrow really). I think that knifes should have enough for a solid grip and still shaped to tell you where the edge is aimed without looking. As long as it does that, then a handle is a good handle. Hamons are just pretty, and I love them for it. Nice little touch.
  9. I agree with Dave - that is awesome and appropriate pattern welding. It seems like they take longer as you get better, but they are worth the wait. I am honestly impressed by the craftsmanship. I love the contrasting colors in the handle, too. Nice material choices.
  10. I love this sword, since it looks just like it is supposed to (even though I am not sure about historical references with this shape, it's Zorro and who doesn't love Zorro?). The L6 in that section - were you able to air harden it? That would simplify that part of things (but L6 is such a pain in other ways I never use it). But, I don't have your tools or skills, either.
  11. handle wrap looks great. I am usually for no plunge lines on tantos, but that' s just me. The knife is smooth and clean, and looks right. Nothing extra, just a good rendition of the design.
  12. yes, that is very light! The fullering is nice, too. good job!
  13. very clean work on all of these. I am a big fan of puukkos. you render them very well!
  14. Jim, I love that piece. It is awesome to me, and really speaks to my internal biologist.
