  5. Well this is a blade that is stainless steel and done via stock removal don't hate me too much guys! Sometimes high quality stainless is the way to go! I hope you enjoy it! Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions on how I can improve my work. Blade: ~7" (177.8mm) cutting edge with CPM154 stainless heat treated by Matthew Gregory (thanks man!) and it is about 2" (50mm) tall allowing for plant of knuckle clearance. I used 0.1" (2.5mm) thick stock and it tapers down to a needle point and the edge is almost at zero. The spine and choil are crowned for comfort. Handle:Wa handle style about 5.125" long (130mm). The bolster is made from black paper micarta to mimic buffalo horn but have complete water resistance. The body portion of the handle is made from a beautiful piece of stabilized curly Tasmanian Blackwood. This stuff looks sort of like Goa wood and the amount of chatoyance it exhibits really is something to admire. Simply put it's a gorgeous piece of wood. Overall this knife is ~12.25" or 311mm and now for some pictures! <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/q74di1XsrqY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/YFUrPx_7Hrg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

  7. This Blade is beautiful and it makes me want to make another tango in the near future. -Jeff Fogleboch
  8. This bar was prelaminated when I got it. -Jeff Fogleboch
  9. SOLD Thanks A lot guys! -Jeff Fogleboch
  10. Mild steel won't spark it needs to be hardened high carbon steel. I'll post a tutorial in the near future guys! -Jeff Fogleboch
  11. I'd also like to add that I am willing to take orders for this if you guys are interested. They will be $25 shipped in the USA. If you guys want I can also post a tutorial on how I make these next time I go out and forge some. I choose to temper mine because as quenched steel is just too brittle. There is a good chance it will break if you drop it on the ground. I only temper at a really low temperature and it still throws wonderful sparks but has a lot more toughness in case you drop it. -Jeff Fogleboch
  12. Thanks a lot guys! Is the titanium harder to get a spark from? And I'm not sure. I don't think it matters too much about The angle but this happens to be square. Just make sure it is hardened and I temper mine to about the hardness of a file. Also make sure the striking surface is ground clean! Scale won't spark. -Jeff Fogleboch
  13. hey guys this isn't a blade but I thought I might share some of these forged steel strikers I've made. I got an order for some a few days ago and I really enjoyed making them. I made the smaller one for myself and the larger one was part of an order. Tell me what you guys think! -Jeff Fogleboch
  14. SOLD SPF
  15. Thanks a lot guys!
