  1. Looking great man, I like where yoirwent with that core idea.
  2. Great knife, I would love to see that one in person.
  3. Thanks Tim, it does feel good in the hand, and almost weightless. That is pretty much what I had in mind George, a carving/whittling knife, it started out as a more traditional puukko, but a heavy hammer blow flattened the belly out, so I went with it. Thanks for commenting.
  4. Phil,yup, stacked birch and a little piece of whitetail deer antler. Kevin, autocorrect got me on the title, it changed sloyd to slots. I meant this one as a Nordic type carving knife.
  5. This is my latest knife, it still needs some touch ups and tweeks. I forged the blade from wrought iron wrapped around a piece of shear steel. The wrought came from a wagon wheel and the shear steel from a set of buggy springs. I forged out a number of blades this fall so I could finish them up this winter. I like to think of a Scandinavian immigrant, making knives from what he could find when he came to this country.
  6. Thanks, I like the 45° cut idea,plus I have an idea for the cut off piece. Setting off the stock for the handle may be a challenge, but maybe I'll cut a starting notch for that also.
  7. Those are really great Alan, I love the shape you have achieved on them.
  8. Ok, I have a commission for a chef knife, 10 inch by 2 inch blade,5 inch handle. I ordered some of Aldos 1084 .156 thick 2 inch wide thinking I could just cut it out, but I would rather forge it to shape. Any advice on forging/heat treating would be appreciated. Thanks
  9. That works, although has any one heard from heard Sam, it's like he fell off the face of the earth. Thanks Dave and Michael.
  10. Has anybody heard anything from Sam, he hasn't been on facebook either. Maybe there is a curse on this kith.
