  1. Owen the sad part is I decided to preside this knife after watching your video where you flatten the tang near the blade to create the finger guard
  2. Here’s a picture of the knife as it stands now after the tang melted haven’t gotten anymore time in the forge yet
  3. well I don't have access to a welding machine anymore but I was worried that a weld might induce undue stress points due to the composite metals
  4. ill try and get a photo up in a few hours after I get home and some sleep but the idea was to make a simple knife handle by bending the elongated tang back around to the blade hilt and making a final much like the picture below from google images not my knife
  5. man these are awesome
  6. while attempting to forge a rat tail on a knife i left the tang in the fire too long and melted it off is there any way to salvage this as i have already profiled the blade shape and bevels
  7. That would be great if I had a belt grinder I still have to draw file my bevels
  8. Yes setting the secondary bevel is my real question I've used land key to do it a few times but I was just wondering about some other people's ideas
  9. What's the best way to fashion the cutting edge on a fresh tempered blade
  10. True Austin it is unfortunate but I'm going to attempt to put them to good use here again as rebuilds up north with the leprechaun
  11. Now on the path to fixing up my anvil local smithy burned down owner gave even thing that was left after he got packed up to move to Tennessee
  12. I got this set up for 150 centaur forge pot and champion blower #40 good deal?
  13. This is Jina a rough idea I just drew in my book
  14. If I was to build a side blast would I need to build a fire pit or just some sort of barrier around the pipe
  15. Actually Loki that second one you have there with the two large dirt mounds I really like seems simple and effective with too much fuel to keep it burning
