  1. I'm sorry to hear that Jacques. She looks like she was a little sweetheart.
  2. Well, she is a lab... Mine is eight years old, and still a pup! All she lives for is to play (and eat). Great thread, love seeing everyone's beautiful dogs.
  3. Damn, just like the last ones, those are badass! I love the detail work. Awesome!
  4. Geez, that sucks! Hoping the surgery goes well, and that you heal quickly.
  5. I'm a beginner myself, and I'm using a lesser machine at the moment (a Kalamazoo). That said, a friend of mine makes some gorgeous blades using a Pheer 454. He even tried to talk me into buying one, but it was far over my budget. Also, sit tight; the expert folks here will have plenty of alternative suggestions for you as well.
  6. Here's a couple of big, slightly elvish styled fighting knives. The specs are indentical for both pieces: AS20 (Darker Handle) Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Wenge Overall Length: 20" Blade Length: 14" Edge: 12 & 3/8" Handle Length: 6" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 2"" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb, 2 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery AS21 (Reddish-Brown Handle) Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Curly Bubinga Overall Length: 20" Blade Length: 14" Edge: 12 & 3/8" Handle Length: 6" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 2""
  7. Here's my baby, Trixie, aka The Goofy-One. She just turned eight years old a couple weeks ago.
  8. AS19: "Lacrima del Serpente" I made this one for myself. It's name means "Serpent's Tear" in Italian. The specs: Steel: 1075 Handle Material: White Oak Overall Length: 20" Blade Length: 14" Edge: 12 & 3/8" Handle Length: 6" Tang Thickness: 3/16" POB: 1 & 3/4" from front edge of handle Weight: 1 lb Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery
  9. Thank you! I'm toying with the idea of making a few 20" versions of these when my next batch of steel arrives. I try to pick out wood that will look good with it's natural coloring. I don't stain it; I just use Tru-Oil to finish it. I found a gorgeous piece of white oak at Rockler last week, can't wait to put it to use...
  10. Thank you! Pretty much everything I make (or will make) is fantasy influenced. I am a huge LOTR fan as well...

  13. AS13 & AS14: Fantasy Skinners/Fighters In the fantasy realms of our favorite stories, folks have to eat too, don't they? These knives could be used to skin the bounty from the days hunt, or as close range fighters. The specs are identical for both pieces: Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Bird's Eye Bocote Overall Length: 10 & 7/8" Blade Length: 6 & 1/2" Edge: 5 & 3/4" Handle Length: 4 & 3/8" POB: -1/4" from front edge of handle Weight: 10 oz Heat treated by Lyndle Driggers of J&L Cutlery AS13 (T
  14. Beautiful knife yet again, Wes! I love the guard, and the overall profile. Good stuff.
  15. That is one beautiful sword. Excellent work!
  16. Here's a little test drive I gave the first knife I made for myself back in August.
  17. Thanks again! Yeah, I embellished the lines a bit; I have a thing for sexy curves on a blade. My 2x72 is a Kalamazoo, and for the fine tuning/precision work, the good ol' Harbor Freight 1x30.
  18. Thanks Kevin. This one as well as Shaddam's blade were made for my nephew. As I am still VERY much a beginner, I am very pleased with how they came out, and I'm grateful to my nephew for challenging me!
  19. Thanks Kevin! When my nephew asked me to make this for him, I had a tough time finding a good screenshot to use so I could make my sketch. I almost had to watch the movie again and take my own photo...as if I needed an excuse to watch Dune again! As much as I love the film, I really need to read the book, as I have not yet read it. My brother tells me the film doesn't come close to doing the book justice...
  20. AS11: Blade of Emperor Shaddam the IVth Inspired by Emperor Shaddam the IVth's blade, wielded by Feyd Rautha (Sting) in the final duel of the 1984 film, "Dune" Steel: 1075 Handle Material: Yellowheart Overall Length: 13 & 1/8" Blade Length: 9 & 1/8" Handle Length: 4" POB: 1" from front edge of handle Weight: 11 oz Heat treated by Lyn Driggers of J&L Custom Cutlery Inspiration: Finished Piece:
