  1. Looks good to me. When you forge the bevels the tip will rise. You will end up with a slight drop point with that shape (varies with how thick it is now and how thin you forge the bevels).
  2. The description was as amazing as the work.
  3. I tried drawing what I was thinking in terms of a subtle curve in the rear of the handle were you have the flat. I think I like the flat better! I don't think that a curve would really enhance control, I thought it would balance the handle better but the flat plays against the straight profile of the blade very nicely. I agree that this design is reminiscent of the Canadian knife and the flat adds to that connection. I also agree that this design doesn't need a lot of belly. Have you thought about a full height grind on this? That would give you the distal taper and give you a very clean look. I would then convex the edge. My thinking on a design like this is you want a fine slicing edge and you would not use this knife for tough tasks so there is less need for a thicker blade.
  4. I like the concept. I would go full tang. I would also add a curve To the belly of the back end of the handle.
  5. Evaporust is a product I have used to remove rust. It does a good job. However that poor knife looks pitted. Is it thick enough to grind the rust out and refinish? My sympathies!

    Two set

    Lovely work!
  7. Tell me more about the wood please? Source, how did it work, how hard is it, stabilized, etc.
  8. No. Yes. 1/8 makes a good bush knife. Always use a respirator with any of the resin impregnated materials. It isn't a bad idea to use one whenever you grind any material.
  9. No experience with this steel but the data sheet specs makes me think it would forge and harden with 'normal' equipment although it is a bit low in carbon compared to most knife steels. http://www.steelforge.com/alloy-steel-6150/
  10. Looks like a filet knife to me! Test the flex, cutting and edge retention and then you will know if you have found a home for the rest of the broken band saw blade.
