  1. Since Photobucket yanked all my pics, here's the most recent photo of my girl Trixie, just kicking back. Again, she's an eight year old puppy...
  2. Looks like Photobucket got greedy. Disabled 3rd party hosting unless I upgrade to a $400 a year account. Switching to Imgur... :angry:

      Have you tried Imgur? That's what I use.

      Just signed up there. Much more user friendly, I like it so far. Now I'm in the LONG process of uploading all my pics again.

  3. This is going to be a wicked looking sword! I can't wait to see it finished.
  4. In the beginning of May, I started working on a pair of sickle-swords, the first swords I've attempted. Being my first run at a blade over 20" overall, I wanted to start with something simple in design. Finally finished them this weekend. I sold one, and I'm keeping one. The specs are identical for both pieces... Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Bolivian Rosewood Overall Length: 30" Blade Length: 24 & 1/2" Handle Length: 5 & 1/2" Ricasso: 1 & 1/8" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 6 & 1/2" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb, 7 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  5. That will be one hell of a retirement home. Very nice place; I'm jealous!
  6. Very nice! That blade has some crisp lines, looks great.
  7. Now THAT'S a sword. Beautiful yet menacing--exactly what a kriegsmesser / langes messer should be. Awesome work. I've always wanted a kriegsmesser / langes messer for my collection, but good ones are hard to get, and expensive. The couple of manufacturers that make good ones, Albion & Lutel, are out of my price range. Wish I could buy yours!
  8. I'm a member of a group on Facebook called "Swords, Knives, & Armor/Buy, Sell, & Trade." We've not had any issues...?
  9. Good to know. I guess I'll never attempt "boost" a post. Sorry you got blacklisted.
  10. Interesting...I use it as well, I have a page called "Appleseed Sharpening Custom Blades." I have not had any issues with any of my posts. Are you talking about the "boost post" feature, which requires a small amount of money? If so, I haven't used that before...
  11. Tried out the jig yesterday on a pair of sickle-swords I'm making, the first swords I've ever attempted. These were shaped out of 3/16" bar stock. All I can say is, wow, I should've got the bubble jig a year ago...
  12. My kit arrived last week, bought it directly from Fred's website. Spoke to Fred on the phone first to verify availability, and found Fred to be a very pleasant fellow. He sent me an email with the tracking number, and a long list of tips on how to use the kit. Looking forward to trying it out this Monday.
  13. Austin, you've got some serious skills with the camera. Great shots, all of them.
  14. Awesome!
  15. Mine are hung up on the wall, starting with 36 grit on the left.
