  1. I love these. They are more than fancy. I'm onboard with Mr.Craft, if this isn't fancy I would love to see some of what you think are. Clean, crisp, and beautiful, the new owner will love them for sure!
  2. I think if it works for you use it. I personally don't like them. When I first started though I built the Gough jig as well and it works well, I soon found though that it hampered my ability to grow because of the controlled motion so I retired it and go free hand now. I also came across a 1x42 grinder and currently workingon gathering for a 2x72. But certainly if it works for you keep on using it.
  3. Zeb this turned out great. Awesome build it was nice seeing it come together. Sorry I can't really help on a price but if was going to someone for treatments I would try to find a way to auction as you may get above vaule for it as it is a donation. Great job!
  4. 2 of Frosty's T burners may be too much in terms of space. https://www.iforgeiron.com/topic/43976-t-burner-illustrated-directions/ That thread on ifi has all the possibilities for those to be properly set and you can feel free to ask him any questions you may have regarding your build. I'm not an expert by any means.
  5. Very nice Sam it looks ready for battle! Looking forward to seeing it handled.
  6. No worries, I'll stay up to date make sure I don't miss them next time around. Thanks for the killer deal Gabe, I will have to cordially decline though. Haha
  7. Watching this in your wip thread was amazing and it looked beautiful in your photos I didn't think it could possibly look any better but geez. These pro photos have really sent this whole piece over the edge. What an amazing piece of work and just in time!
  8. Wow that really does put the size of this anvil into perspective. An amazing find for sure!
  9. Hmm alright thanks so much for the info. I had seen a video of someone forging a blacksmiths knife and they had used it to file down the bevels. So I was curious because everyrhing I have read previously is as you two have both stated, good for roughing and cleaning up cuts but not much in terms of finish work. Thanks a lot.
  10. It has been tough finding time to hit the forge but I found this evening, not finish but rough forged to shape it will be annealing overnight 52100 pare/paring knife. The wife has been on me but it is 10pm and it is time to head to the day job.
  11. No need to be shy regardless of skill level. But for you, your skill looks quite refined, I love this sword I'm really looking forward to see more of your work. I love the pommel btw.
  12. Hey everyone. I'm curious of what the benefits of hot filing are and do certain steels work better than other? Mainly a steel like 52100 as it is hell on both abrasives and files even when annealed. Thanks for any advice.
  13. A little late but do you have any left to purchase through here JJ?
  14. Wow. This turned out beautiful. I enjoy your videos on youtube as well. Is there going to be one of this?
  15. Awesome sword Gabe. It was a really great contest and I'm glad to see you won! Enjoy your fame!
