  1. You Guys Are The BEST ! I just got a hold of Clay via "clay@otelco.net " (I don't know why I never found this email ) THAAANKS !!
  2. Great tools ! Do you have any pictures/infos on the originals ?
  3. That's the one I'm trying to contact, but the infos I have don't seem to be working anymore :/ And I have stumbled across a few post concerning people not being able to join him, so that's my issue, maybe have you a working email to join him ?
  4. Hi, I'm in the end-planning process for a power hammer, after debating the pros and cons for the model, I'm deciding to build a tire hammer mostly base on the great DP120 make by Dave Preston, but I can't find a place where to buy the plans for the "original tire hammer", that's mainly for the dupont linkage proportions I sent an email on the "@tirehammer" address, but it returned to me as failed Do you have a solution for me, whether it is another email or anything else ? Thanks guys !
  5. Okay.... I was planning a press, now, this is EXACTLY what I want, the compact design, the ease to use, it is just prefect !
  6. This little fella has a lot of personality ! Love it !
  7. You make me jealous, me how has just started the making of such pieces, but still miles from this kind of piece ! Really great work !
  8. I really like the coherence of this knife, great job !
  9. Thanks a lot guys for these kinds works and the inspiration you give me ! I have to admit that the ones you like the more are also my little favorites ! I just love how the elk antler turn out, it is just a shame that I can't find them "easily" here :/ As for busy... you can say that ! The workshop as been quite improved and I already have some sleepless night due to some heavy machines that I plan to build sooner than later (Power hammer yaaayyyy !! )
  10. Hello, I don't know if this post will be okay, if not, I let the chiefs delete it, no issues for me there So, I have these fellas that are sitting on the shelf, sunbathing, and well, this can't really be tolerated can it ? For starter, this friction folder, made with the intention of bringing the scramasaxe blade shape into a more modern knife The blade is 100c6 (ball bearing steel) with differential hardening and glide on teflon washers The frame is aviation grade titanium The scales are in stabilized ash olive tree and the spacer is made from stabilized spatted beech 13.5cm (5" 1/3) closed for 21cm (8" 1/3) open with 9cm (3" 1/2) of edge 260 $ + shipping (35$ ) Then, this tiny scramasaxe on a distal tapered full tang The blade is made from 115w8 (tungsten steel alloy ) with a lightly etched hamon The handle is made from boxwood root and brass for the rivets 17cm (6" 3/4) overall for 7cm (2" 3/4) of blade 190 $ + shipping (35$ ) And these two vikings, the first, with a wrought iron spine (from an old prison bar ) and c130 edge (1.3% C steel) The handle is made from boxwood, reindeer antler and bronze Veg tanned leather dyed in burgundy and decorated with brass sheet 21.5cm (8" 1/2) overall for 10cm (4") of blade 290 $ + shipping (35$ ) And the second with a 320 layer-ish damascus blade The handle is made from elm burl and bronze The sheath is veg tanned leather just treated (almost saturated) with bees wax and decorated with brass and copper sheets 25cm (10") overall for 12cm (4" 3/4) of blade 440 $ + shipping (35$ ) Thanks for watching, for any question at all, send me a PM !
  11. Then again, I coudn't help myself fo make another multibar But sometime, a classic is nice too Or maybe a bit wrought-er ? But sometimes, you can't fight the roughness of the forge, and somthing like this can occur And...well... when large thing are calling, you can't really fight them, can you ? There are always little felas to rise up and let know they are here But there is a time where they must fold And slowly let the order of thing take it's place once again And rise up again ! I hope this was not too large of a post, but as I said, there is quite a few that left the shop Thanks a lot for watching this !
  12. Hi everybody ! I don't really know if you will remember me, it has been a few years since I posted here, even though I lurk around regularly as I enjoy seeing all the beauties you guys post ! I will try to condense a bit as I made quite a few piece pieces during this time, as you can imagine, most of them are knives for viking reenactment but well, you'll see Let me start with a piece that I consider to be my most complicated build so far, even if it is not my latest, made for the leader of the Joms and offered by my "clan" Sadly, the pictures are not the best as I was in a super hurry at the time It's a multibar damascus made from 6 pieces, mainly 1.3% steel Handle is made from bog oak, mammoth ivory and bronze The sheath is veg tanned leather decorated with brass sheets Here is something different, but this projet was something special, it was ordered by a woman which was planning a trip around the world to learn about the alternative healing techniques, so she wanted a trusty companion, I made it from 14C28N stainless and splated birch I also made a little "set" for a contest on a french forum, with the rule of making either a friction folder or a neck knife with a WIP, I made both ! If you are curious, here it is https://picasaweb.google.com/106672221917948955536/6283715975144304081?authkey=Gv1sRgCL3om62AirixVA# This was my first try at using titanium for the frame of a folder And after that, I made a few others !
