  1. It is great! I want it for myself. Whenever I get a shop of my own
  2. Looks like it's either a 5 or a 6. It is also marked 1921.
  3. Thank you. I dislike having to spend time getting rid of hammer marks. I cannot leave marks on the products we make at work so I couldn't get away with poor hammer control.
  4. I will check it Monday when I get to work and let you know. If I remember right there is only a partial number there
  5. I am not entirely sure. It is a beast though. It's my favorite anvil at work.
  6. Two hours to this point maybe a bit more. with the T shape at the back of the spine i cannot grind it with the belt aanders I have, so all clean up work so far has been with a 4.5in disk.
  7. I have a box of old chisels I picked up at a yard sale for $5. I have no clue what material they are unfortunately. The seller said his father used them to make headstones. At the moment it weighs 7.6 oz. Next week I will do some more grinding and heat treat.
  8. Seeing as how the poll at the moment has blacksmith knife in the lead, I was browsing Google images last night for ideas. I came across an image that was just too perfect, I had to make it.
  9. If it is fully cured the safest thing is probably to take the finest file you have and slowly go at it. Then sandpaper once the bulk is off.
  10. There will be a theme with some general guidelines set. All you have to do is fit those. There are all skill levels taking part!
  11. when i had to do this, i first epoxied my over sized scales to the tapered tang. I then trimmed the scales parallel to each other on the bandsaw and drilled the holes. obviously this was all done post heat treat with a tang soft enough to be drilled through.
  12. i cannot see the most recent picture, but that first drawing you posted looks great.
  13. Try any of the above suggestions. I also had problems with how my knives looked, and I couldn't figure out what it was. Once I started taking my grinds all the way up to the spine I was very pleased. My knives looked better, were lighter, and cut better. I also like the spear point and sheepsfoot shapes on an EDC. As well as a handle with a subtle curve to it, that is slightly larger at the back end then where it meets the blade. I do like the shape of that blade though, i like the slight swell towards the tip. i thing that with a higher grind and a slightly different handle shape you might like it more. Also the distance between the edge and where the handle stops is a bit large, it just seems kind of jarring. So a smaller ricasso area might help. Just play with it a bit, i draw a lot of knives before i commit to trying to make a design that is new to me. Good luck!
  14. To add to that, this tutorial by Chris Crawford has helped me immensely. https://chriscrawfordknives.com/tutorials/written-tutorials/slipjoint/page-1/
