  1. There are few straight lines in nature, and none of them on your hand. I think most knives look better, and probably preform better,if the butt is lower then the front of the handle. If you look, most will have this drop. I agree with the others that there should be a little more butt. I can't deny! Like Doug said,its not really a chopper, but a colts foot, fawns foot, birds head, what ever you call it helps a ton when you are chopping it using a knife for rough service.
  2. Looks great for 6 months! A couple of thing that would make it look/preform better in my opinion is to drop the handle a little, and It might be a little short in the handle too. bith of these things would make it easier to control and hang on to when chopping. The end of the handle might become a hot spot after extended use. Good job, and these things are just my opinion.
  3. Nice Michael. It would have ended up looking more like your drawing if you forged the middle bar into a rectangle and ground it into a square before stacking all the bars together. But you already knew that! Love the stippling! Never comes out that good for me.
  4. Very cool Dion! Looks like it would be very comfortable!
  5. Haven't posted anything in a long time. Here's one of my latest. Here is what I call a "Wrangler". I have been carrying one as an EDC for about two years. In a horizontal sheath they disappear until you need it. Either hand has access, either hand can put it away. This one is CruForgeV and 15n20 in a ladder pattern with a great piece of stabilized Turkish walnut and 416 guard and domed pin. It's 7" overall and blade is 3.125" long and .140 thick at the ricasso. 61 Rc. The sheath is pig lined 8-10oz W&C with a little tooling. This one has great retention and a little snap into it home position. These are a three finger knife, but my little finger has purchase on the "fawns foot" these are small enough to carry, yet would make a fine hunter if you like a small knife. The close up of the sheath is the back side, and since I hand stitch, this is by far the worse of the two sides.
  6. As a farrier and a knife maker, WELL DONE.
  7. Very nice, what's the handle treated with?
  8. Naw, just a couple second cutting bales for the hay burners. Lol!
  9. Here are a few of my latest. They are all 1084/15n20 with Claro walnut, buckeye burl, or the hunter is oak that was pulled of from the bottom of Lake Superior. One has a elk antler spacer also. The smaller ones are based off the knife I have been carring every day firths past year. They are about 7.25" over all and the bigger one with the Superior Oak is about 8.75" all have 416ss guards and pins. Let me know what you think. <a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view&current=4B6EA590-6D07-4121-ABBE-E72FB543C795-1246-00000321077824DA_zps41f8e405.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/4B6EA590-6D07-4121-ABBE-E72FB543C795-1246-00000321077824DA_zps41f8e405.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a> <a href="http://s1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/?action=view&current=153F5027-71E5-428E-8928-563023E8145F-1246-000003210138F9A6_zpsfd94f40f.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t517/okiedonner/153F5027-71E5-428E-8928-563023E8145F-1246-000003210138F9A6_zpsfd94f40f.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a>
  10. I should be there. Not sure I have any period recipes though! Have to go black belt with Google-fu
  11. Well I finally go the sheath done for this guy. I tried some out door pics, not sure that they are any better!
  12. Thanks Karl, it was your layer count I used. Looks about right to me.
  13. David, no disrespect intended!!! I hope all know that. Nate, i dome one side in a little riveter I made, then install In the handle. Then file it to .030~ and use a polished center punch that I have domed like a little ball pein. I also use a straight punch to get the last little bit to touch the handle with out making ugly marks. A few seconds on the buffer and done. At least that's how I did that one, until I find a better way!
