  1. Thank you for the info, everyone. And Wes, thank you for the offer. I really appreciate the support and I'll keep it in mind.
  2. And how exactly would you attach the rebar to the billet, weld it?
  3. Ok, I thought I had heard of someone using it somewhere. Thanks for the info!
  4. I'm setting up a forge this summer and I was wondering whether I should buy actual blanks or just some rebar. Is rebar good for knives?
  5. I'll get on that. Thanks for all of your advice!
  6. Ok, so I've ground it down to what seems to be an acceptable full flat grind. Granted, it looks good to my untrained, inexperienced eyes, so feel free to give any suggestions. The tip got a little overheated, so I'm planning on normalizing it before going on with the polish, sharpening, smoothing, etc. I also got a little overzealous with the grinder and notched the edge a bit near the tip, but I can't really fix that without removing half the knife. I've also added a slight curve by the tip of the blade, as George suggested. attachments (1).zip
  7. I apologize for the quality, I took the photos on my phone. Sorry for the long wait, school has been murderous and I'm still trying to get my hands on some tools that I need. I tried some beveling with both a file and a grinder. In the end, is a full flat or a scandi grind more historically accurate?
  8. I think that the emerald would go better with the pewter. Can't wait to see the knife!
  9. You know that you've done an amazing job when your steel makes an optical illusion.....I'm astounded.
  10. That's an amazing etch, John. I've never seen it done that way before. Thanks!
  11. Thanks, John, for the example. Miles, an overview of your etching would be great, thanks!
  12. Yes, I see what you're talking about. Thanks for the clarification!
  13. Thanks Matt, and George, I just want to etch some runes on my 5160 seax that you commented on earlier.
  14. I'm sure that people have posted on this, but I haven't found any specific how-tos. How exactly do you etch a blade?
