  1. A few of the guys at the wastewater treatment plant I once worked at used a very high concentration FECL on poison ivy! I don’t recommend that, but it didn’t seem to hurt them other than staining their skin for what seemed like weeks
  2. Thanks buddy! Sorry to keep adding pics, but this shows the handle at its final finish
  3. Finally got around to trying to figure out kydex sheath making... ended up being pretty comfortable to carry and use.
  4. If I may add my penny's worth from my admittedly limited experience, find the right pressure and cadence/stroke. It seems to help me with my impatience and poor technique
  5. With only .05% carbon, I don't believe you'll be hardening it any time soon...
  6. Oh wow! That’s a perfect blend of East meets West
  7. Gerhard, they do sell dedicated checkering files, but they will be much finer than what Gary did. Think more along the lines of checkering on rifle/shotgun stocks.
  8. I’d guess oak of some sort, but I could be wrong.
  9. Isn’t cussing a basic process for blacksmiths and bladesmith’s?
  10. Not quite the same thing, but I’ve heard of drilling a hole for the tang as you described, then using a knead-type epoxy putty to fill the hole. Then oil or grease the tang, insert into the putty, and remove before the epoxy hardens.
  11. Sure ya can... just shell out $300 for 25 of em https://www.amazon.com/8-18-Bolts-Thread-Grade-Carton/dp/B0012Y8TJM
  12. I am blown away! That’s amazing!
  13. Congratulations and that is a gorgeous ring!
  14. I have to agree with Alan... the novelty wears off fairly quickly imo
  15. I've also heard that you can buy titanium dioxide powder and mix it with water and its as effective, and cheaper too... I haven't tried it myself though. $15 for a pound seems pretty cheap... https://www.amazon.com/Pure-Organic-Ingredients-Eco-Friendly-Packaging/dp/B01N6R7MS5/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=FHCKVFWKZZ7G&keywords=titanium+dioxide+powder&qid=1559625499&s=gateway&sprefix=titanium+di%2Caps%2C228&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1
  16. Friend of mine who is a woodworker asked me if I would make him a fillet knife, and a couple blade blanks ready for him to put scales onto and give as gifts. All he told me was that he wanted a 6” blade. I had recently gotten some 15n20 from a member here and used some to rough this out. It’s only .070 or so thick, so I’m going to HT these at full thickness and grind the bevels in afterward. Anyway, and obvious design issues that you see here? I am going to file in a choil so the sharpened edge has a clean termination.
  17. That’s about as amazing a pocket knife as I’ve ever seen sir. Beautiful work!
  18. No offense taken sir. This was the first blade forged with my dogs head hammer, and I was kind of still trying to figure out if the issue was my use of the tool, or it’s ergonomics. I agree though, it needs tweaking
  19. I absolutely cannot wait to see this thing finished Gary. It’s gorgeous
  20. I’d have to measure but this one might work with some cutting of the plate where the holes are now... https://www.centaurforge.com/mobile/Cast-Iron-Tuyere/productinfo/TUYERE/
