  1. My piece is in the oven for the third time and I was wondering if after the last tempering heat I should take it out to air cool or just turn the oven off and leave to cool?
  2. coolio interesting piece of stag.
  3. After googling star anvil I would have to say my vote is for American Star. They are built very similarly.
  4. Looks like a great camp knife. Sweet.
  5. With all due respect I don't detect much odor when I do it and I always do it in the house but do it where ever you like. Another method that I have heard about ,if you are really patient is to soak the antler in rain/creek water for about a month. I'm not that patient so I like to go with boiling it.
  6. These are two sock removal projects that I did when I couldn't be in the forge. I don't usually do stock removal but after the first I had to make another since it was so darn cute.I didn't bother to polish.
  7. I like it hot. Maybe I overdid a lil.

  8. Boiling the antler works rather well. I have used it several toimes and had good results.
  9. That's nice I would love to carry that around.
  10. The handle can be done so many ways. I might go with bloodwood (really pretty stuff)or some dother hardwood. Use something that is easily accesible to you. For the grip just try not to make it too rounded or it might turn in the hand while in use. I like to drill a pilot hole and then burn the tang in the handle sometimes. Then epoxy.Good Luck.
  11. I just realized how well your name suits you.
  12. another barrel......hm..........where to find one...

  13. Do we know yet if the homestead will happen this year?
  14. I can`t remember a time when my bugars were any other color. I also work with a charcoal forge so It`s a constant hassle. I just give my nose a good blow`n. Steel in the cornea's not good ; goggles fog but that impared visions only temporary. p.s. I also used to grind with an angle grinder.The transfer to belt grinder was awesome.
  15. I think I`ll try some fried chicken
  16. thanks guys this really cleared a lot up about the bowie for me
