  1. Hey Garry, The customer asked for a ricasso area because he likes to hold that area while cleaning fish. I find it ugly myself but they were very happy. They use it mainly for processing catfish.
  2. Been a while since I have posted anything. I wanted to share a few knives I've since sent out. Sorry for poor photos. The first was a filet knife. Forged from 52100 with a stainless spacer. The handle was stabilized teak burl. I put a mustard patina on the blade. The second was a 4.5" trailing point skinner. I left the forged finish on it. It was forged from 1095, hollow ground with a maple handle and stainless pin. Both recieved #kydex sheaths, I'd really like to do some leather though in the near future. Ive been real busy but I have a few projects on deck that I'll be sharing more of. Of course all comments and criticisms are welcome. Thanks, Scott
  3. Gorgeous twist pattern and leather dying work. It matches perfectly
  4. Yeah Alan, tracing it I believe it is 60 as well and although I have not put it on a scale I'd say that's got to be close. Also good to know about the difference in English and American made videos. Thanks I'm just happy to finally have found one at a reasonable price.
  5. Finally was able to get a decent post vise for a good price. 5" jaws the only repair it needs is a new wedge for the mounting bracket which I will most likely forge out this weekend. The fella I bought it from thinks it was a Peter Wright but not sure no markings other than what appears to the date of 1912. Going to break it down clean and grease and mount it this weekend but the screw works extremely smoothly already.Thanks for looking.
  6. Really nice. I like the shape of it a lot.
  7. For anyone not interested in making there own. PineRidge burners supplies ribbon burners. A little on the high side compared to the DIY path but quality nonetheless.
  8. Thanks for the info Alan it is very helpful. I'm beginning to lean towards a Coote with an 8" or 10" wheel. Vern what type of setup do you run yours on? I see they list a 1hp as a good size but I was thinking of a 2hp with a two or three step sieve and possible ordering the ceramic platean and a possible rest. Any thoughts or ideas on that would be helpful thanks.
  9. Thanks Vern. There is a lot out there. Right now I use an old Rockwell 1x42 with a 1hp. It works but quality belts are harder to find and my abilities have exceeded its capabilities at this point. I would really like to advance my hollow grinding with this purchase and that is where my questions start to rise. Do I get a flat or serrated wheel and what size etc? Thanks
  10. Rehashing an old thread here but after 2 years forging I finally have enough to be able purchase a mid range setup. I too am looking at the OBM grinders and Coote as well as AMK and Ameribrade. I was just looking for some other opinions. They all have pros and cons, I also plan on getting a better forge setup at this time as well to have more welding success. Thanks for any help!
  11. What is the final submission date for this year?
  12. How warm do you make the vinegar and is it plain white or apple cider? I was working on my second attempt at a hamon and after sanding at 2k grit with apple cider for about 25 minutes I still I had no activity so was just curious. Also blade looks good
  13. Hello everyone, I've not posted anything in a while buy I have been creeping around. Anyway I made a small everyday utility blade. Forged from 1095 about 3in blade with an american walnut handle finished off with paste wax. I still need to do a final buff but I'm happy with the overall outcome. Let me know what ya think!
  14. This is an impressive piece. Both the sheath and blade are great. Keep up the great work.
  15. Hello all, no blade work today but I did forge out some s hooks/ j hooks and also made a hand fuller. It is forged from 3/4" S7. Still need to cut the excess off to shorten it down. It is the first tool I have forged myself so I'm happy with it.
  16. Hello everyone, come spring time, I'm hoping to build a lean-to on the outside of my garage and make that my new shop space. Right now I use a simple brick forge with a Reil burner. I plan on converting over to a freon tank shortly, which I plan on keeping but would really like to build a coal forge when I can move into this outside workspace. After reading and studying multiple different builds, I was wondering what style some of you here use with your coal forges. I plan on other general work which will require larger pieces so I'm looking to build something bigger than a rivet/brake drum style forge. As always, thanks!
  17. Really nice. The inlay is great, it looks killer!
  18. Most likely from a combination of not grinding down any of the teeth and then being at too low of a temp because of those teeth. Pictures always help too know more and give the best answers possible.
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. Very nice Sam it looks ready for battle! Looking forward to seeing it handled.
  24. 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
  25. 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!
