  2. Brother Chris, Beat me to it also you could make a set of "C" type of wedges/ shims to go around any of the hardy tools that you are finding that you like to fit your anvil (Just make sure that you use a good steel and it is long enough so you can knock the hardy back out of the anvil ) **** I have seen some get stuck due to soft steels and mushroom.

  15. Wow Brother Bruce , the Deba blade is looking quite nice & on its way to being a show stopper . I would clean the Handel area as well when doing the blade area to avoid a step up / off set so when you put the handle back on it is a nice smooth transition .
  16. Bruce , The Deba Knife you have "IS/ Should Have" a single Bevel on the blade. The one side with the Japanese text, should be "Absolutely Flat ! " the other side Should have the Bevel ! this is known as a "Single Bevel Knife". there are many types of Handles you can put back on the knife Just remember the handles on these knives are up to the user. I have quite a few Handle designs (100's) that are common for this type of knife if you are interested in them let me know I either post them or send you an E Mail with some of them. I look forward to seeing what you do with it .
  17. Looks like a Very Sweet Blade Chris. I look forward to seeing it completed .
  18. Chris, Try the 1550 Degree F soak time for two Minutes letting the steel cool to room temp (On Its Own) them Temper @ 400 Degrees for a X2 Cycle letting the steel cool back to room temp (On Its Own) On the last Temper Quench in a Bath of Oil with oil temp @ 250 Degrees and it should stay in the Oil bath with out heat source to the Oil and Both the Oil and Steel Let cool to room Temperature You will see a Very Sweet Blade with Exceptional Hardness & Temperament .

  19. It could also be Hemp fibers woven together to form the material as it was also used back in that time period.
  20. I have Not Stopped working on this Project Folks ! However , I have had a delay due to having two teeth ( canine # 11 & 12 teeth) fixed and have had some Minor issues with this Surgery . I will continue when I am doing better. Best Regards Ret, Sgt. Yates
