    Starting a New Dirk/Dagger

    Gary, far be it for me to tell you anything! I love it. The white micarta is a nice touch. I think I liked the smaller pins better but, this is what makes the world go around, difference in taste! I always feel like I have been to the museum after I look at one of your pieces!! Your work, as always is impeccable! I learn something every time I read one of your posts!!

    How short can hidden tang be?

    This shows a half tang that will have a threaded pommel. The top pic would be like that half tang knife, except they had two pins/rivets to keep the blade from pivoting!

    How short can hidden tang be?

    Back in the 1800's the companies that were suppling the trappers and traders. They were suppling a half tang knife they called a scalper!! Today it would be a full tang knife all the way to the but of the handle. You can do a threaded extension on a hidden tang!! OK I borrowed this from a site called knifekits. It shows a hidden tang that will have a threaded pommel. The top pick would be like that half tang knife, except they had two pins/rivets to keep the blade from pivoting! Here is more of what I was thinking of, (borrowed from the net). It shows a very short tang with rod silver soldered to it! You can let this run out the back of the handle and either thread it for a pommel of a pommel cap and peen the rod!! Hope some of this helps!

    2x72 belt grinder to buy

    Paul here are the same drawings I built my KMG clone off of! http://www.knifehelp.net/media/docs/GrinderPlans.pdf This is not the original set I had, cause they did not have pics of one made out of aluminum!!

    2x72 belt grinder to buy

    Have you got the experience in fabricating or metal working. If so building your own is an option!! This is mine when it was nearly completed! I had somewhere slightly over $300 in it and that was mostly metal, wheels, pullies, bolts and such. The motor cost me about $150. So ended up with about $450. in the whole thing. The biggest thing everything has to be square and true or it will never run correctly! Then you will begin to make modifications and changes!!

    Simple tomahawk

    Your title say simple tomahawk. Sometimes simple is the best expression of something that is more than simple. Outstanding work!

    Don't weld in tennis shoes

    When hot slag gets inside a shoe, it is a contest to see how fast you can get out of your shoes and socks. I have grabbed the dunk bucket and done just that, dunked the entire shoe foot and all in the bucket!!
