  1. Hey guys. I've always wondered what the orange folder next to the topic as apposed to the blue one means. Could someone please tell me.
  2. Definitely, if I can make it out. It was hard enough getting a ride to this past one. But I'll try.
  3. Thanks a lot guys! ~Isaiah
  4. By the way I have seen a video of a guy having a lot of success using a bow-drill. It just has to be done the right way.
  5. Green Beards are the result of lighting your galvanized beard.
  6. Really glad you guys like it. cheers ~Isaiah
  7. Thanks guys! Here are a couple of closeups on the wood.
  8. I've been working on this guy for a long time. He's tried to kill me a few times but I'm finally done. The blade is about a foot long; made from an old file. I got the wood from the Iron in the hat at the Trackrock hammerin and I don't know what it is. The rest of the handle is comprised of mahogany and brass. The guard is mild steel. Thanks for looking guys. ~Isaiah
  9. Finished heat treating. No visible hamon after a quick clean up. She sure rings pretty though.
  10. Thanks. I'm now heating the Rutlands up again because I forgot to normalize before I applied it. I'm about to go for it.
  11. Hi guys I am going to try to get my first hamon on a big bowie. Should I quench in water or oil? Thanks for the advice.
  12. Hey Bigfoot, You seem to be struggling with curvature when forging the bevels, as I see in your knife to the left. One way to combat this is to put a counter curve in the blade before forging the bevels. Also I see that your hammer control isn't great but it will develop over time. A great way to practice hammer control is to do other small project such as wall hooks or anything easy just to practice. Good job; keep up the good work. ~Isaiah
  13. Some more of my novice work...another skinner..... I like em`. Specs:blade- recycled file handle- deer antler guard- brass
  14. The blade is about 3" long and is scary sharp. I have really been into forging skinners lately as I can appreciate their use.
  15. Is that you in your picture? Because it doesn't look like it.
