  1. Zep, that is not oxpho blue but my etching process, thinks its the coffee making that blue-ich patina, after the coffee i use local acid that i apply whit a peace of cloth. btw welkome Joe, hard not to miss ya
  2. Thanks Jon, the ring i can explain as it was drifted whit hammer drift more or less oval, the brass ring was hammed from one brass strip and overlaps unevenly over the eye. This increases the visual effect of unevenness. But who cares i was damm happy to have a tight fit from one strip
  3. HI all, I made this drop point hunter whit a karambit grip in mind, it turned out surprisingly comfortable at all angles. Its ab 80 layers, done by hand hammer with 3 steels that i had laying around (i forgot the precise consistency.. it did take some time to get this billet) handle is mild, finished of with copper/brass soldered and pinned bolster, snakewood and for a comfortable grip in the eye a bras finish ring also soldered and mechanical. The etching was done in a hurry, sry for that. oal 30cm/12inch blade 18cm/7inch Comments are welcome thanks for watching
  4. Finally had some time to weld this together , one multibar (twist layers and strait) for a seax, other billet still in progress
