  1. Olandvillyoungmsith, welcome that is a great piece for a beginner. I am one myself. One other way that you might try this is to upset the spike end and forge it into the edge, leaving the head as a hammer. If you are going to throw the hawk I wouldn't recommend pinning the handle because the handle might get messed up after a while and replacement would be necessary. Great hawk and welcome to the forums. ~Isaiah
  2. I forgot to mention this will also be my first sale.
  3. Thanks GEzell. I only used 1 spike though I wish I had some experience welding. Sorry but all I have are final pics though I could make another. ~ Isaiah
  4. Thanks Dan.The spike was about 6and1/2in. ~Isaiah
  5. RR Spike Hawk w/ hickory handle. Thanks for looking.
  6. I am trading this skinner to a friend for some antler. The handle is mahogany and the blade is lawn mower blade steel. Thanks for looking. ~Isaiah
  7. That sounds like a good idea but the sheath works fine as is.
  8. It's a pocket sheath. I could use some help finding better leather than I have available if you wouldn't mind.
  9. This was a Christmas present for my Grandfather.The handle is mahogany and the blade is lawn mower blade steel.
  10. These were Christmas presents for a friend who is a missionary to Africa. Making little knives like these is so much fun.
  11. I can do a leather sheath but I thought denim would be cool to try. I used several layers and sowed it up with copper wire .It worked pretty well.
  12. This was a Christmas present for my dad. He didn't have anything but a box cutter to carry so I made him a pocketknife from a Nicholson file.
  13. That is some real craftsmanship.Beautiful work!
  14. Thank you again Mr. Smith. I will soon(hopefully) try my first hamon.
  15. Does anyone know anywhere I can find satinite around northern Georgia?
  16. I was about to post the same thing . Cool work.
  17. Well I guess that answers my question. Thanks Mr. Smith.
  18. How well does W2 take a hamon?
  19. That piece definitely has cooliage.
  20. Bummer:(.... it was interesting. Good job up until it was thrust into the perilous waters of the sea of death(aka water quench)Better luck next time.
  21. A seax doesn't have length limits as far as I know and even if it did you can always make something original. Pattern welded is just fine also; that would make it all the better. I would say that unless you are doing a replica of a certain blade then you don't have to worry about making every single detail line up with something else. It is your knife so do what makes you happy.
  22. I tried forging a drill bit once.It was a scary experience:blink:.I don't recommend it.Dagger's cool serge.
  23. Gongrats:). Before I got some oil which was just recently I did all of my quenches in cold water. I was so excited when I finally got some old motor oil from changing the oil in my dads suburban.
  24. Yikes! that is something to add to the "tell my psychiatrist" list.Glad your ok.
