  1. Just wanted to share my shop and my black powder room. If not for the shop I would not have my room. Over the years I have traded knives for almost all of my black powder stuff. Except for the knives I kept for myself. Anyhow I just wanted to share
  2. You can steal the design but not the idea.
  3. I used a 4" cutoff wheel to make slot. I tried the hot chisel but it did distort so I cheated and used the wheel
  4. Small friction folder I finished up awhile back I hate sawdust in my shop and waiting for glue to dry so I am always looking for ways to avoid using wood. Blade forged from 1084 and the rest is mild steel reverse twisted. IMG_1668.MOV IMG_1657.heic
  5. Thank you. They are good sellers. I get burned out with making them though.
  6. I have a small shop and hate cleaning up sawdust. I used 1084 for the blades and large garage door spring for the handles. Have a great weekend!
  7. Yes. I carry one with no issues. Thanks
