  1. Completed Mosaic Bowie

    Beautiful work Gary. Quite stunning
  2. My lastest WIP

    This is looking great! Can’t wait to see it all finished and together

    I’ve used epoxy putty on hidden tang knives before... drill a hole large enough for the tang to fit, then fill the tang hole with the putty, insert the tang wrapped in Saran Wrap or similar, let the putty start to set up, and remove the blade. Then I cut grooves on the corners of the tang with a file or die grinder to help the epoxy grip.

    Gotcha. I’m working on making something similar
  5. Sgian dubh

    Yeah, I’d say so... What’d you use for forging the fuller in? Or did you grind it?
  6. Historical left-handed warriors

    Biblically, Ehud was a left-handed judge over Israel that made a two-edged weapon around 18” long that he used to kill the king of Moab with... You can find the part about being a lefty and making the shortsword in Judges 3:15-16
  7. A Mosaic Damascus WIP

    Like I said on Facebook, I like it a lot Gary
  8. Sgian dubh

    Look forward to seeing this buddy
  9. Migration period leather Arm Cuff

    Amazing craftsmanship! That is beautiful
  10. Custom Anvil for Knifemakers

    I think something like my first anvil, with a hardy hole and a small horn added could be a good pattern, or at least some of the ‘features’. No waist to create a small ‘sweet spot’, with an upsetting block (not really necessary, but handy for some of my blacksmithing projects), and a nice radius on the left side of the face there for drawing out stock. I haven’t weighed it, but it started life as a 16” circle of 3” plate I was told was 4350. I’m pretty sure it’s just mild after welding the upsetting block on, but it still works pretty well. Even just a hardy tool holder on the side would work, as you can always use a hardy bick iron in place of a horn... *disclaimer* I am at best a very novice bladesmith. I have done a lot of reading and talking to those who are not, and my reading and discussions does seem to confirm my admittedly limited experience. I will also say that I still like the attached anvil at least as much as my “new” 100#’er. How much of that can be attributable to familiarity I’m unsure of, so take everything I’ve said with a healthy dose of salt...
  11. Coal Forge for sale

    That price come with an evening in your shop watching a master? If so, I might just have to make a trip to MO!
  12. Hammer dressing

    I’ve done the same thing with all my hammers. Much prefer the handles without the clearcoat on them. Hammer looks great, BTW
  13. Something FINALLY done

    I like it a lot
  14. Hardenable?

    No, that is ‘mild steel’ and wouldn’t be hardenable
