    God, blade smithing, blade designing, blade testing, blade using, blade/sword fighting, teaching people about blades.
    Blades in general.
    Other than that, outdoors, Boy Scouts, hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, SURVIVAL, and the very fun game of LIFE. Mine, to be exact.
  1. Finally, something worth posting 1/4" 5160, Brazilian Kingwood grips. That stuff was a joy to work with, took a finish like nothing else I've worked with
  2. Hey all, Got two up over on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/VTknives?ref=s2-header-shopname Both are 3/16" 1095, canvas Micarta handles, and come with Kydex sheaths. Chicago screws for hardware. The fighter is 11 inches OA, the belt knife is pushing 6 and a half. Asking $95 for the fighter, $50 for the belt knife, $140 for both (plus shipping). On the belt knife: you may notice the listing says 'discounted'. The design looked great on paper, but the handle is about half an inch short of what it needs to be. Still holds fine, but your pinky is left hanging a bit. Being transpar
  3. Looks great! Keep a-makin'. Nice filework, too
  4. I love how I can't match it with any culture, not at least one I know. Beautiful lines on the handle. Greg
  5. Man, what I'd give to have your supply of springbok. I only get the chance once a year, sometimes not even that. >< Some great pieces, by the way!
  6. Not to argue with the Order of Fiery Beards . . . but seeing as this is your first knife, I'd focus more on geometry and heat treatment than historical accuracy. Follow Mr. Gezell's advice, he's a fine craftsmen, but don't fret over it too much (this time). That can, and will come with skill. That said, throw some curves on that thing! Looking like a great start. You've come to the right place; if you can grow as a knifemaker anywhere, it's here.
  7. I suppose the oxy was too hot? I did something much the same with a piece of scrap (luckily). I assumed that the oxidation appeared before the steel was cooked through, so to speak. But I second the diving knife option
  8. Hey, Wade, do you know Dale from Titusville? He told me he supplies gator stuff to a bladesmith down south, and I was wondering if that was you. Beautiful knife, by the way Greg
  9. I agree with drawfiling. Quick to pick up, and it works like a charm. And for sandpaper, the trick is to make sure you have all the scratches out from the previous grit before going higher. I say that like it's oh so easy and I do it all the time. Oh, and it's great to see another teen on here. Greg
  10. The flared choil reminds me of Serge P.'s work. Very unique shape, I like it! Greg
  11. Not bad! Kudos on forging down that piece of round stock. I have an anvil and hammer quite like yours, and it can be a pain on larger chunks Since you're working with a file, might I suggest drawfiling with a mill file? You've probably already heard of it, but it makes for some clean bevels done right. Over all, not bad at all for a first forged. Is this your first knife ever? Greg
  12. Love the bracers, don't think I've seen them before. And runes make everything better. Greg
  13. Does the fuller on the last one trail into a false edge? That is beyond sick. Greg
  14. I glanced at it and my eyes screamed 'karambit! :D', but then I looked again and saw what you made. Looks great.
